Did You Know?

Trivia

According to some early sources, Josh Brolin was rumored to be considered for the role of the Beast, but it's likely that he was deemed too old for the part. See more »

Goofs

When Belle and the Beast talk outside on the bridge high up at the castle, there is a slight reverb, as if spoken inside of a room. This would not be possible with no walls around, clearly indicating a mismatch between sound and visual reality. See more »

Quotes

Belle: How would you feel about growing a beard?
Beast: Growls

Just stick with the original '90s Disney movie
17 March 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I don't know about you guys, but I was left thinking "What was the bloody point?" and came out feeling underwhelmed as everything felt weaker compared to the 1991 original. Emma Watson is not very good as Belle, and they didn't change it enough to make it stand out like The Jungle Book or Pete's Dragon remake. Disney felt really lazy here, sadly. I hope we see more effort in the future rather than just 90% the exact same movie.

4.5/10
