I can’t stress enough how fabulous the movie Beauty and the Beast is! I saw it live and in person out in Hollywood and if you are an avid reader, you know that I have been posting about the movie all week lol. I even got to interview the stars of the movie which blew me away because I didn’t think that was going to happen with these A-List celebrities. Emma Watson(Belle) and Dan Stevens(The Beast) took the time to share with us their favorite scenes, costumes and so much more. I learned a lot about how Disney put this iconic movie together, they left no stone unturned. If you are free this weekend, you should really take your family out to see it, it is well worth it. More info inside…
Five favorite things I loved about the movie:
The costumes for sure! They were very eye-catching to see on screen! The bold colors, intricate details and the way they moved, especially Belle’s gown in the waltz scene!
I loved the storyline on how you should respect others and be kind, great message for young people to know. Beauty is within.
The choreography is fantastic. To see all the dancers move was so fascinating to me.
My favorite character was “LeFou”, played by actor Josh Gad. He was hilarious to watch on camera and has such a great voice.
I love that you can take your whole family to see this movie.
