There’s totally nothing wrong with being a full grown adult and loving Disney films. I’ve been eagerly awaiting Disney’s adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, and it’s finally here! I was lucky enough to enjoy a sneak peak of the film, and it’s everything I wanted. The opening sequence stays true to the original animation, and it’s lovely. All of the costumes are breathtaking, and I really liked the castle. There are a few original songs thrown in there that threw me for a loop, but (other than the Beast’s dramatic solo song) I didn’t mind.
There were some unexpected moments (I wasn’t expecting the much talked about gay scene, but I loved it, and the audience clapped and cheered when it came on the screen) and a few surprises. It was a funny and heartwarming film. One of the scenes that used to scare me as a child (when Belle runs into the woods and there are wolves) was actually scarier to me as animation than in the film. That being said, I’m a little bit older now as well, so that could also explain it.
If you haven’t seen it yet, go and check it out! It’s delightful, you’ll love it!
