         Beauty and the Beast was originally made in 1991 as an animated feature film. An arrogant young prince (Robby Benson) and his castle’s servants fell into a spell casted by a wicked enchantress, turning him into a beast and his servants into objects until the beast learns to love and be loved in return. A beautiful village girl, Belle (Paige O’Hara), enters the beast’s castle after he takes and imprisons her father. She takes her life for her father’s and he is sent free. With the help of the servants she soon falls in love with the beast and the curse is broken, and they live happily ever after.

        The recent remake of the movie, released on March 16, stars Emma Watson as (Belle) and Dan Stevens as (The Beast). There was not much difference from the new film to the old one in terms of plot.  There was a lot more live action and high-definition aspects, including snarling wolves and real-life looking objects. This movie has gotten 7.7 stars out of 10 on IMDb, 71% on Rotten Tomatoes making $13.8M, and is currently one of the top of the box office.

“It was the most accurate adaptation of an original disney movie,” junior Marley Greene.
