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.

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.


Belle means beauty. Belle showed us a new princess look in the Atlanta screening!

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!
