Get ready to be transported to a fantasy world.

I was really excited for this movie as I grew up in a time where animated Disney movies were everything! The Little Mermaid being my all time favourite and Beauty and The Beast a close second.

As a person who loves books and who always was caught with a book in hand (I had burned food on numerous occasions because of reading and forgetting that something was on the stove), I always felt a kinship with Belle’s character. Her love for books and adventure made me feel as if I was not the only odd one out.

This movie portrays each character perfectly, from Chip the teacup to Lumiere the candelabra. LeFou (Josh Gad) was hilarious, you automatically love his character. He is loyal to Gaston (Luke Evans) but also is very conscience of what is right and wrong.

I love that Disney kept everything as close to the animated version as possible. The costumes and intricate details of the castle and characters are amazing.

If you have kids, this should be your go to family movie to watch! The star studded cast make you believe that for that moment you are with them. You feel their happiness, sadness, pain and love.

Get caught up in the moment, be a kid again!

A tale as old as time…
