Beauty and the Beast is no doubt a Disney classic. Brought to life in 1991, this movie just got a face lift as a live-action film. For those who don’t know, Beauty is the story of a girl named Belle played by Emma Watson, who trades places with her father as a prisoner in the cursed prince’s castle. And as most Disney stories go, Belle has to fall in love with the Beast to break the curse.

Since its opening day on March 17, Beauty and the Beast grossed $400 million at the box office. This film spent $160 million dollars in production which makes it the most expensive musical ever produced. Even though she stared in all eight Harry Potter movies, Beauty and the Beast is her highest grossing opening.

Coming from a dedicated Disney fan, this live-action version of Beauty and the Beast was executed beautifully. I absolutely loved that the film did not stray to far away for the original Disney classic. I was the most intrigued about how well the singing would be carried out, and the film exceeded my expectation. Most of the time I couldn’t hear Emma Watson over my own singing, but when I did, it completely went against what I expected for her first time singing.

I would highly recommend going to see this movie. Whether you’re a hardcore Disney fan like myself and you want to compare the movie to the original or you just want to see the film for the first time, it is worth the watch. Go and see it before it’s out of theaters for good.
