It is a live-action remake that is so faithful to the original film that one cannot help but question why it exists at all.

The new Beauty and the Beast is, in a word, magical. It's innovative and whimsical, and also close enough to the 1991 release that fans will not be disappointed.

This new version of Beauty and the Beast is fun, exciting to watch, and beautiful to look at, every bit as enjoyable as its animated predecessor. But it's also still every bit as problematic, even with new-and-improved trappings.

While [Disney's] Oscar winning animated version reigns supreme, Bill Condon manages to deliver his own interpretation that tweaks the tale here and there for new audiences with a great effect.

It's just a straightforward retelling of the original, with a few cosmetic changes tacked on to make it look like something else.

Beauty and the Beast is a charming movie that uses the talents of its lead actors to successfully recreate and redesign one of its classic stories.

Disney has developed a winning formula by hiring talented directors that can take their beloved classics and turn them into live action masterpieces.

The effect is sometimes that of a live-action karaoke of its cartoon source...

May 5, 2017
Bill Condon's live-action remake of Gary Trousdale and Kirk Wise's Beauty and the Beast (1991), the high point of Disney's animation renaissance, is as bloated, awkward, and aggressive as the cartoon feature is fleet and graceful.

The film doesn't need to be given a dark twist like 2012's Snow White and the Huntsman; as with every fairytale, there's enough darkness in this story to begin with.
April 24, 2017
The only believable reason this classic was remade was for love of money, but it does look fantastic doing it... the original animated film is still your best bet.

I loved Beauty and the Beast, had a smile on my face the entire time. Don't miss it.

This live-action 'Beauty and the Beast' is a special gift to movie musical fans. As old as time this tale may be. Now 'Evermore' will stay with me.

If Disney keeps cannibalizing itself, reenacting their animated hits like they're nothing more than karaoke videos, the Mouse House will eventually become its own cursed forgotten kingdom.

Disney takes a step back, delivering a rehash close to being a robbery. An unjustifiable remake. [Full review in Spanish]

A film designed to appeal to an audience blinded by affection and nostalgia towards the original work, that results in a rewarding spectacle. [Full review in Spanish]

April 7, 2017
The warmth and elasticity of the original's traditional animation is still unmatched by the digital wizardry on show here, but there's no arguing with the scale and swirl of the film's famous, marvellously mounted musical numbers.

virtually everything that is enjoyable about it, particularly the show-stopper musical numbers like "Belle" and "Be Our Guest," derive their pleasures directly from the animated version
