Me and the family are big fans of Disney, the wife is desperate to go next weekend so hopefully we will see it then. The live action remakes they've done so far, the jungle book in particular, was fantastic so hopefully it will be as good, early reviews are certainly positive.

Hmm, I'm a bith in the middle. I've never really liked one of their live action remakes so far (Maleficent was terrible, the others were okay) and honestly, I'm not crazy about the look of the Beast and the servants just look so weird xD

 

But on the other hand, I love musicals and am really looking forward to seeing these songs brought to life. On top of that, Luke Evans is an awesome actor and I can't wayt to see what he'll do with Gaston.

To be fair, Maleficent wasn't really supposed to be a remake, more an 'alternate' version of Sleeping Beauty.

Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney film....so I was a bit apprehensive when this was announced.

I started getting doubts after seeing (in my opinion) questionable casting and the trailers seemed to suggest very average visual effects.

And sadly the reviews seem to support those fears. Any enthusiasm I had has plummeted and it's going to take a Meerkat Movies viewing at my local £4 cinema for me to now consider going....

Yes, yes i am looking forward to it. I love the 1991 film and seeing how it translates in to a live action feature is intriguing at the very least. Jungle Book turned out quite well....

I am looking forward to it BUT it really bugs me that Beasts Horns are on the wrong way round and a lot bigger and also missing the 2 front canine teeth, i know i'm being picky but they have the reference material its not hard to follow it.

Im actually looking forward to it, never seen the original animation version,in fact can count on one hand all anitmation films i've ever seen. So never seeing it i can go in with an open mind i think also the fact that dont know the story also helps, i know girl meets beast and guess they fall in love and thats it so wont be disappointed if the story strays from original.

Hey, you get back in here if you want to disagree with me.

You on the other hand can leave, get yourself down to your local video store (they still exist right?) and get yourself an animation education. Just start with the entire works of Disney, Ghibli, Laika and Aardman.

I'm in two minds I adore the Disney era the original was part of

But the clips and trailers leave me underwhelmed. I think Emma Watson is a godawful actress and not nearly attractive enough to be Belle.

The CGI/motion capture on Dan Stevens Beast looks just bad, they could have done an amazing make up job on him instead and speaking of CG Lumiere and Cogsworth just don't FEEL right.

I accept those two points are my own hatred of CG verses puppets and make up and in the film will function just fine.

The main reason I will see it in the cinema is the new songs and that original score which is timeless.

So Im interested but wary

My favourite Disney film is The Jungle Book, so I was a bit nervous when they announced they were doing a live-action remake.  I went into the cinema with low expectations, but was surprised, it was very good!  I saw it in the cinema twice! :smile:

 

As for Beauty and the Beast, I'm seeing it on Sunday with some friends.  I'm looking forward to seeing what it will be like... :smile:

I didn't see it on Sunday in the end, since one of my friends who was meant to be coming couldn't make it.  So, I'm seeing it next Saturday instead. Looking forward to it, though! :smile:
