One “Tale as Old as Time” for many people would be the story of “Beauty and the Beast.” It crashed into theaters on March 17, starring the beloved Emma Watson and the handsome Dan Stevens. This story is one that has carried children through their youth and you can correctly assume that the remake has been eagerly awaited.

When I was looking to buy tickets, a week in advance because it was just released, some of the showings were already close to being sold-out. When I got to the theater with a few friends, it was already quite filled, though not quite sold-out. This showed that everyone was excited for this movie to come out.

The movie itself was very good. It was a bit slow in the beginning and that sloth-like movement caused one of my friends the snooze for a bit – during a musical number, no less – until she was prodded awake. That slowness was when Belle was with the Beast and their relationship was building. It was obvious that the supposed “chemistry” between them was not always exciting audience members.

The film stuck to the original animated version from 1991 that enchanted so many children but also added some modern twists thrown in to make it slightly different and to stand out.

Rotten Tomatoes said, “With an enchanting cast, beautifully crafted song, and a painterly eye for detail, ‘Beauty and the Beast’ offers a faithful yet fresh retelling that honors its beloved source material.”

“Beauty and the Beast” has caused a bit of an uproar in some theaters because there appears to be one or two gay characters, and that wasn’t considered appropriate in the Enlightenment Era that the movie was set in. A theater in Alabama actually didn’t allow for “Beauty and the Beast” to be shown for that reason.

Beauty and the Beast was a musical and magical film that captured our hearts once again with regard to the original that showed love can see past physical appearances. Overall, it is a motion picture to enjoy. Warrior Wire Rating: 8/10 stars
