Disney's animated classic takes on a new form, with a widened mythology and an all-star cast. A young prince, imprisoned in the form of a beast, can be freed only by true love. What may be his only opportunity arrives when he meets Belle, the only human girl to ever visit the castle since it was enchanted.
In the scene set in Maurice's workshop, in the lower right corner foreground, there is a model of a carriage with two small figures dancing on top. The figurines are dressed in the same costumes that the Beast and Belle wear during the ballroom dance scene. See more »
Considering a lot of the scenes are meant to be outside in the snow not once do you see any of the characters' breath in the air when talking or breathing like you would in real life. See more »
Once upon a time, in the hidden heart of France, a handsome young prince lived in a beautiful castle. Although he had everything his heart desired, the prince was selfish and unkind.
Master, it's time.
He taxed the village to fill his castle with the most beautiful objects, and his parties with the most beautiful people.

Part of the closing credits is a "curtain call" sequence that features the cast (appearing in poses) and crew (their credit with an image relating to their respective job). The sequence is framed with shots of the Beast's castle at sunset, and ends with a zoom shot of the Beast and the enchanted objects posing at the castle's entrance. See more »
Some theaters and one of the Blu-ray releases have an overture that plays before the film. See more »
Walking out all I could think was "WOW!". This movie is everything the animated version was and so much more!
The live action movie follows the animated movie very closely. It has been a little bit since I saw the animated version, but I didn't notice anything missing from the original. The live action version has a few extra scenes than the animated version which adds to the backstory. I really thought these scenes were an excellent addition.
I really loved this movie and it surpassed my expectations. I was a little worried about a live action movie after always loving the original - I wasn't sure it would measure up. The music was wonderful and the new songs that have been added compliment the original soundtrack perfectly. The costumes are wonderfully colorful and bright and scenes are beautiful. Cinematography and the CGI effects were also very good and felt seamless.
There are so many things that make movies uniquely Disney and those qualities were evident in this movie too. The "Be Our Guest" scene had me flashing back to Fantasia for instance, and the overall magic of the film in all of it's beauty could really only be Disney.
I highly recommend this film.
