I saw Beauty and the Beast this evening and it was everything I hoped for and more. So enchanting. It took what was amazing about the original and expanded on it to create a beautiful film which I would say is better than the original. And I don’t usually rate remakes.
It was a wonderful portrayl of the classic story with such powerful messages of feminism and love. I am so happy this movie was made. The cast was perfect. The visuals were mesmerising. The soundtrack was ethereal.
And after all the LeFou controversy I was so happy to see how it played out, my precious gay son. Josh Gad killed it. Honestly, many moments brought tears to my eyes but LeFou’s exclusively gay moment had me and my friend sobbing. Also the diversity and representation of women made me so proud, something the original and many Disney films have lacked.
100% would recommend. Thank you Bill Condon, Emma Watson, Luke Evans, Dan Stevens, Josh Gad and the whole cast. Thanks Disney ❤
