Movie Review: Disney’s Beauty and The Beast (2017) #BeOurGuest Friday 17 March, 2017
Today Disney’s Beauty and The Beast is in theaters and I am so excited to share my thoughts and reviews on the film. The 1991 version is the one I grew up on and is still on of my favorite animated films. I was so happy to learn the animated Beauty and the Beauty was getting a modern live-action production. I took my eight year old niece Jordan, and I don’t think she seen the original but she was just as excited to see this like me. I am such as big kid…I know I was more excited than her!
Jordan came to the movies very festive! I was only a few years younger than her when the original came out (dont try to add up how old I am, old man). The production of this film was beautifully made with the live-action personified version, beautiful costumes, makeup, and the musicals were authentic to the cartoon.

This time around, we get to see new faces of diversity, which include Audra McDonald (Madame de Garderobe) and Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Plumette). From Princess And The Frog, Aladdin, Mulan, Elena Avalor, Queen Of Katwe, Moana to now Beauty and the Beast, Walt Disney Pictures has truly embraced diversity and becoming more inclusive than ever.
Speaking of celebrating inclusivity, at the screening the guest was presented with a Belle we’ve never seen before. She was beautiful and definitely still gave a princess flair in her African inspired gown and hair wrap.
Jordan had a blast at the Beauty and the Beast screening and clearly I did too. I am such a big kid and I am just so happy to enjoy this live-action remake with her. My noslagia was fulfilled and the new one did my childhood animated version justice!
