Beauty & The Beast

Movie Review


Katie Boergert

Recently, they remade the Disney classic Beauty & The Beast into a live action movie, starring Emma Watson as Belle. Producers fixed mistakes they had made in the original animation, and added more to the story with some extra details that made the movie more accurate.

Many people were leaving negative reviews over the announcement that Lefou would be gay. Expecting it to be a big deal in the movie, it was a surprise to see they only hinted at it in some scenes, only confirming it at the end when he was dancing with another man.

The movie was sensational, even if I personally think it should have been slower paced on Belle and Beast’s relationship building. Also, there should have been more dramatic action in some of the scenes. However, I would give it a 10/10.
