The journey of Belle, a bright and independent young woman who takes her father's place as the prisoner of a beast in his castle. As Belle befriends the castle's enchanted staff, she and the Beast slowly begin to look beyond their initial reactions to each other and see who they truly are. But back in Belle's village, her father's fears for her safety drive him to rally the villagers to free Belle from the castle--a plan that goes awry, with dangerous consequences, when Belle's would-be suitor Gaston twists the rally into a mob and leads an attack on the castle.

Saw it with my best friend at first! I love how Emma Watson and others acted their roles. The acting was really good but the songs were....well not too good. It's a good movie overall

If I wasn't too old for Disney, this manipulative piece of formulaic commercialism would get 4-1/2 stars, I recommend to anyone and would watch again someday. Well done, Disney, I had a tear in my eye. The horses were beautiful and Gaston was incomparable.

I liked this DVD. It is good for all ages. The script is wrote mainly for children. This particular DVD is the main story done with real people. It has some new songs. It is well acted. The computer graphics are good. It is recorded in the English language.

I get why this movie is liked. It has some nice visuals, plot holes from the 1991 animated movie are fixed, and to many a fan's delight-- Emma Watson is Belle. It's a recreation of the movie we're familiar with and love, and the familiarity is part of the charm.
But I don't like this movie. It's almost an exact recreation of the 1991 movie, and it's not even a good one at that.
The lighting is dark to amplify the gloomy mood, but dim lighting does not make a movie better. It only makes it difficult to see.
The two main leads lack the charm and personality of their animated predecessors. I was more invested in Lumiere and the Featherduster but only because Gugu Mbatha-Raw's performance was endearing.
The leads aren't trained singers, which wouldn't be a problem if this wasn't a musical romantic-fantasy. But it is, and it is. It's telling when the minor characters have better singing abilities than the leads when it should be an even field.

And this version of Beauty and the Beast has already been adapted as a stage musical. Do we really need another adaptation of this exact story?

If you want to see a different interpretation of Beauty and the Beast, I would suggest the one on hoopla made in 2016. Or watch the series starring Ron Perlman. It's different but at least it's not a retread of the same story by the same film company.

I thought it was lovely. Disney continues its run of fairy tales brought to life. Well done!

Love this movie. It is very well acted. It also relates to many girls now a day.

A very good re-imagining of the classic tale. Acting was splendid and singing was satisfactory—the only weird thing was that a lot of the actors had British accents… in France 🤔

Thought I'd end 2017 viewing with one of my favourite classic tales. I loved the Disney cartoon version and this latest retelling of the story was utterly, utterly enchanting for this big kid!!
