Quick consensus: A thrilling Fantasy with perfectly cast characters and charming songs to tie the story together.
This one is for all my non-K-fans, since I know pretty much everyone has gone to see this movie, and if they haven’t, they’ll likely get roped into it by well-meaning, but rabid family and friends anyway.
Okay, here we go! My expectations for this movie:
Which were quickly met with that AMAZING beginning sequence with the dancers, and the dresses, and the singing, and the glam:
Emma Watson’s endearing, but so very autotuned first musical number:
Gaston and LeFou as perfect cartoon incarnations:
The Beast’s CGI:
EVERY musical number:
How they made the Beast charming, intelligent, witty, and 100% worthy of Belle’s love:
All the added songs, backstory, and character building they put in to flesh out the original:
That moment when the Beast got all hot at the end:
And basically every moment of this movie, which was tastefully recreated to compliment the wonder of the original, while still adding depth and creativity to stand on its own:
Thank you, Disney, for bringing my favorite story to life! I left that theater grinning like the crazed fan that I am, and I look forward to watching it again when it is released on DVD!
What did you think of the movie?
Hope you have a magical week!
P.S. But for real, if they were going to autotune Emma that hard…why not just get a dub voice for the singing parts?
