Disney has truly found itself a new niche with these amazing live action films over the last few years.

Maleficent definitely led the way, but the company’s current live action feature, Beauty and The Beast takes the cake!

This film is nothing short of epic and does an amazing job of adapting the original animated film to a live action format!

The film is based on Belle (Emma Watson), a “funny girl,” and inventor who shares her love for art, learning, and invention with her doting father, Maurice. Belle tires of her “provincial life” in her little village where everything is the same day to day. She longs for adventure and something more than a regular life. Beautiful and intelligent, her attributes earn her the affections of the arrogant and narcissistic village “hero,” Gaston (Luke Evans). However, Belle soon gets more than what she bargained for out of life when she finds her father has been imprisoned by The Beast (Dan Stevens) and selflessly takes his place. Whereas Belle sees herself as his prisoner, she is single-handedly the last best hope The Beast and his servants have to regain their humanity.
