Beauty and the Beast a tale as old as time

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

JUST as the song says, it’s a tale as old as time, and you can catch the Disney clas­sic Beauty and the Beast when it hits the Bowen Sum­mer­gar­den Cin­ema next week.

This mod­ern day retelling of the iconic fairy­tale stays true to the 1991 film while up­dat­ing the ma­te­rial to feel fresh and rel­e­vant.

As soon as the film be­gins, you im­me­di­ately get sucked back into this world and can’t help but fall in love with the story, char­ac­ters and mu­sic all over again.

See­ing Belle for the first

time as she sings her way through her small vil­lage feels as though it was ripped di­rectly from the an­i­mated ver­sion.

Emma Wat­son rep­re­sents a mod­ern day ver­sion of Belle which shows her as a strong fe­male who is well-read and head­strong.

Dan Stevens as the beast and Wat­son bounce off each other quite nicely, mak­ing the film even eas­ier to watch along with in­cred­i­ble vis­ual el­e­ments.

As for cos­tume, an in­cred­i­ble at­ten­tion to de­tail makes costumes look ex­actly as they did in the 1991 film, mak­ing the ex­pe­ri­ence all the more nos­tal­gic.

Make sure you book your ticket to see the clas­sic tale make a come­back.
