The movie Beauty and the Beast is a retelling of the classic story.  It begins with an arrogant prince and the castle’s servants who have fallen under a spell of an enchantress. The prince was turned into a revolting beast and the servants into household items.  This curse was thrusted upon them for the prince’s cold heart, and how he had treated the enchantress when she pretended to be an old hag seeking shelter. They will all stay in these forms until the Beast could learn to love and be loved in return, before the last petal falls off the magic rose in the glass case.

           When Maurice, a villager clocksmith, is taken prisoner by the Beast, his daughter, Belle, sacrifices herself and promises to become the Beast’s lifelong prisoner to ensure her father’s freedom.  With the help of the household staff, Belle learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior appearance, recognizing his kind and gentle heart, as in the saying “do not judge a book by its cover”.  The villagers learn of the Beast and attack his castle, led by the village hunk, Gaston.  The Beast’s servants defeat the villagers, and the Beast returns back to his original form of a Prince, for he had learned to love, and gains Belle’s love in return.  Belle and the Prince live happily ever after.

           The costumes were gorgeous, from Belle’s complex gowns to the villagers’ daily work outfits.  All the sets were great, from the village, Maurice’s workshop, the town pub, and the castle.  The castle was astonishingly beautiful.  While under the curse, it was dark and mysterious on the outside, and on the inside it still had an intricate and detailed design.

           The computer generated imagery (CGI) was outstanding.  The household servants made it feel as if the castle was alive.  You could really feel that the servants, even though now objects, were once human.  Although they lost their human form, they did not lose themselves, or their humanity.  The music was also amazing, the Beast even having his own song which he didn’t have in the original Disney animation.

           Beauty and the Beast is the perfect movie for all ages.
