“Beauty and the Beast” was released on March 16, 2017.

To date, the movie has made made $160 billion at the box office. Because of this, Emma Watson, who plays Belle, is now one of the highest paid actresses in the world.

Many people have said that Dan Stevens, who plays Beast, is said to be more attractive as the beast rather than his human form.

Directed by Bill Codon, I think this is one of the best Disney live action movies that has been made in years.

In the film, we are given a little more back story on the Beast and Belle alike. The original movie had many plot holes in my opinion.

There is also controversy involving Lefou, Gaston’s best friend. At the end of the movie, Lefou is seen dancing with another man, and many people are upset at the insinuation of homosexuality. Based on the time the movie was set, it is more than likely that he was, but could not show it.

All in all, the movie is marvelous. The cinematography is very well done. I have seen he movie twice and each time, I fall more in love with it. This movie will change the way you look at the original story. You should definitely go and watch.
