Emma Watson did an amazing job as “Beauty” in Disney’s live animated conversion of Beauty and the Beast. The beauty within theme was a very timely, theme especially in the present day world of vanity in which we live. A very vain and arrogant prince (Dan Stevens) certainly learned his lesson early on in the movie when he snubbed an enchantress who placed a curse on him, turning him into an unsightly beast until he found true love.
Showing the film in 3-D was a stroke of genius. But my favorite part of the movie was learning about all the beauty that lived inside the unsightly castle.
The princess falling for the Beast was the sweetest love story of all. I especially liked the way she gushed over a specific gift room inside the castle the beast bestowed to her. I’m trying not to give any spoilers away. Please go and see the movie, you won’t be disappointed. Beauty and the Beast raked in $173 million opening night, with most of the money coming from presales. Pre-sales for Beauty and the Beast were higher than Lego Batman‘s opening night numbers.
Even though the theater was filled with children, there was no crying, whining or much movement during the movie. The kids were all mesmerized by the production, song and constant emotional excitement.
