Emma Watson brought her box office appeal and made Beauty and the Beast one of the most anticipated movies of 2017.
I have long waited for this movie.
And I loved the animated version which captured our then innocent hearts in the early 1990’s.
Although I am much more fond of Mulan, Belle for me is step above all other Disney Princesses.She likes to read and does not want to be married (yey!).
So I quickly got myself a buddy to watch this one at the earliest opportunity.
Afterall, how can I resist finding out if Hermione can also sing?
And the verdict?
The whole movie was a 2 hour-melt-in-your-heart moment.
The effects are mesmerizing and funny.
I never expected to fall in love with teacups and candlesticks but I did.
And Beast? He was a rough, sarcastic, well read and intimidating beast. But a charming one too.
Belle was just so different – independent, opinionated and inventive. Just the kind of heroine we want our children to be.
I can’t wait for Disney to do this same magic to their other animated projects. I just hope they pick Mulan next.
