The fantastic 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.

Lights, Camera, Action…Again

Remakes and questions about originality have been around for a loooong time: What has been will be again,     what has been done will be done again;     there is nothing new under the sun. Ecclesiastes 1:9 Although Ecclesiates didn’t have Hollywood in mind, the observation still applies given the current entertainment industry climate of remakes, reboots and reimaginings.

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is truly enchanting. I loved how smart, strong, and brave Belle is. I think that she is very empowering, and I appreciate her sense of family. This is one of my favourite Disney movies, and my favourite Disney princess of all time. Belle doesn’t fit in with the other people in her town, and aspires for more. I think that that can be very applicable to many viewers, which makes this film feel much more personal and inspiring. I highly recommend that you add this movie to your shelf! The characters are complex, the music is wonderful, and the storyline is very creative. It is a must-see! @PenelopeScriptor of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

This movie is well done. Cast is good and the songs are great But I grew up with the original animated Disney movie, and I still feel that version is better.

This is a beautifully crafted and well done movie. I loved how Disney delved further into Belle's backstory and fixed the mistakes they had with Beast in the original. All your favorite songs from the original are there (they went above and beyond with Be Our Guest--its fantastic) and they've even added a few more that only amplified the story and characters. I also love how they made the curse to Beast and the castle staff much more dramatic. When I watched the original, I was under the impression of "yes, they'll be stuck as candlesticks and clocks, but they'll still be alive." In this new version they emphasize that the castle staff will turn into inanimate objects and it gives the story more feeling and tension. I strongly recommend this movie to all ages.

One of the better live-action remakes of a Disney film. The costumes and visual details are beautiful. I especially like the new original song "Evermore" sung by the Beast.

This was a Walt Disney production of a musical version of Beauty and the Beast. I did find it entertaining but believe it would have been better watched on a large screen like at the movie theater. To me I was not disappointed in watching it and it would be for all ages.

Quite possibly the most romantic animated film ever! I found myself shedding a few tears in this one, at the heartbreaking circumstances that the Beast and Belle face. This is at the top of my all-time favorite Disney movies, and there's a good reason why. Wonderful voice cast and even more incredible animation make up this hilarious and heartwarming movie

Beast: I want to do something for her. But what?

Cogsworth: Well, there's the usual things. Flowers, chocolates, promises you don't intend to keep.

Lumiere: No, no! It's got to be more something more special than that!
