I know, everyone is talking about this movie now and this might be the last movie you want to see me write about this month, but I have to! I loved it!
I am not going to talk about the story – everyone knows the story. (If you don´t, shame on you! Go watch it!). What I do want to talk about is how it compares to the original Disney fairy-tale. I must admit I watched the original one like 2 days before watching the new movie. I was afraid the new movie would be completely different and that they would ruin it all, but they didn´t. Even though I did get a bit scared at the beginning with the ball and everything being so “overdone”, but I do realize it was because of the time period it was fitted to. Anyway, songs were the same, some were new, but mostly the same which I loved! And most of the details and conversations were kept the same. Bonus points here! What was different was the fact that Beast had great education and could read and Belle was inventor who only read few books.
As for the actors they were great! Gaston was amazing! When I first saw him my jaw dropped down and I went: That is real-life Gaston! Yup. All of them had done a great job in the movie and I must applaud them. One weird thing though, Cogsworth and Lumiere were too much, too detailed. They lost a bit from the “enchanted fairy-tale” feel and that is a pity!
