Did You Know?


In this version, the Beast turns out to be quite educated (makes sense for a prince) and absolutely does read, unlike the animated version. There would be very little else for him to do with his limited means of being about outside the castle, and makes that vast library collection in his possession much more plausible. See more »


The witch in the woods has an owl. They show a barn owl but you hear a great horned owl hoot. Barn owls don't hoot. See more »


Belle: [finds the Beast reading in the garden] What are you reading?
Beast: [quickly] Nothing.
Belle: "Guinevere and Lancelot."
Beast: [correcting her] "King Arthur and the Round Table."
Belle: Still a romance.
Beast: Mmm. Felt like a change.

Disney does it again.
18 March 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Beauty and the Beast" was stunning and gorgeous. Beautifully and artfully performed. Dazzlingly colorful and charming. Fresh and lighthearted. Wonderfully and magically enthralling. I laughed, I cried, I floated along with the music, I bawled and bawled as the spellbinding elegance and splendor took me to another place and time. I was 5 years old again enjoying the Wonderful World of Magic that is Disney, as if for the first time. I will gladly spend my money over and over to see that magic unfold. I willingly and happily concede Emma Watson to be Belle, for this generation of children, instead of Hermione. She has earned her place as a Disney princess and I applaud everyone who had a part in this piece of magic. Truly, Disney knows how to make us all children again.
