Beauty and the Beast Review: Beauty and the Beast is without a doubt one of Disney’s finest classics. The first animated film to ever be nominated for best picture and after you see it, you could understand and agree with it’s nomination. Beauty and the Beast is going to be one of those films that will always be remembered. It has unbelievably terrific animation, a beautiful story, lovable characters, and is just over all a perfect movie. I really love this film so much, and don’t think anyone couldn’t fall in love with it.
In Beauty and the Beast, Bell is just a simple girl in her town in France, she reads books constantly and her father is an inventor. They are sort of the outcasts of their town due to their “oddness”. But Bell is being pursued by the town hunk, Gueston, simply because she’s the one girl he cannot have. One day when her father’s inventions are about to be displayed at the fair, he gets lost in the woods and stumbles across a castle and is held prisoner. Bell goes after him and comes to the castle, it turns out that her father is being held by a beast who is cursed with this hideousness unless he finds a true love before a rose he has welts. Bell trades places with her father, the house also has living objects, a candle holder, a clock, a tea pot, all who are also cursed until the curse is broken.
They look at Bell as the perfect opportunity for the beast to find a true love, but he must learn to be a gentleman, but Bell brings out the best in him and it turns out that this might be a happy ending after all. The ending was just so beautiful and heart felt. The songs are just so lovely and perfect for the scenes that they are performed for. Beauty and the Beast, the song, was just one of the most touching songs ever. This films is a major recommendation for me, it’s one of my favorite Disney films of all time, Beauty and the Beast is a timeless classic that is just perfect and reached a new level of great animation.
