The new motion picture Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as the Beast, brings forward fresh morals in the story of loving what is on the inside rather than focusing on the outside. The newly redone Beauty and the Beast, has recently been brought back to life through vivid visuals and stunning effects.

On March 17th , 2017, the classic fairytale turned movie was released. This isn’t the first time that moviegoers have had the chance to see into the life of Belle in Provence, France watching her story unfold in the mid 1700’s. The original Beauty and the Beast movie premiered in September, 1991 yet this newly redone movie, stuck well to the original storyline.

The story begins when an arrogant young prince is put under a spell that turns him into a beast, and all his servants into either talking household furniture, silverware or a teapot and cup. A spirited young girl, though her village refers to her as odd, asks her father for a rose. On a detour home from a visit to the market, Belle’s father spots a rose garden in the courtyard of the Beast’s castle.

The Beast watches as Belle’s father snips a rose, and then, mainly due his famously short temper, proceeds to lock him up for eternity for stealing. When Belle’s father doesn’t return home, she stumbles upon the castle when out looking for him. She negotiates with the Beast to allow her to take her father’s place, and let her father go free. The Beast agrees.

As Belle adjusts to the castle, the enchanted servants make her feel at home. Belle begins to warm up to the Beast, and him to her. She seems to soften his cold heart. After many trials, they realize their love for one another, and the spell is broken. The Beast is back to a handsome prince and the servants become human again, much to their delight.

The movie is receiving much praise, as such from The NYTimes, “It looks good, moves gracefully and leaves a clean and invigorating aftertaste. I almost didn’t recognize the flavor: I think the name for it is joy.”

The movie is enchanting with its stunning graphics and effects, that make you feel as if you are in the castle right alongside Belle, singing along with Mrs. Pot, the teapot, her son Chip, the teacup, and the witty candelabra, Lumiere.

This magically retold classic tale earned $428.5 million in its first five days, proving that sometimes all the world needs, it to revive a definitive yet iconic fairytale on the big screen. Disney, you never disappoint.
