Tale of Beauty and the Beast is alive
EVERYONE loves a fairytale and audiences are going to fall in love again as a Disney classic comes to life.
Beauty and the Beast is now showing at the Proserpine Entertainment Centre.
The live action remake for animated Disney classic features Emma Watson in the title role along with an all-star cast of Hollywood heavyweights from Ewan McGregor to Ian McKellen.
For those unfamiliar with the story, Belle (Watson), a bright, beautiful and independent young woman, is taken prisoner by a beast (Dan Stevens) in its castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the beast’s hideous exterior.
Beauty and the Beast does right by its predecessor, delivering a musical experience that both dazzles the eyes and plucks the heartstrings.
Drawing from the original animated movie screenplay, Beauty and the Beast screenwriters Stephen Chbosky (The Perks of Being a Wallflower) and Evan Spiliotopoulos retain the basic narrative framework of Woolverton’s script, while integrating additional character backstory material and subplots that further flesh out the larger story.
Beauty and the Beast delivers enough in the way of classic Disney romance and musical delight that it ought to manage to please most fans of the original animated movie, as well as the younger generation of filmgoers who have never “heard” the Tale as Old as Time before.
