'Beauty And The Beast' Premieres Today; Cast Members Give Stellar Performance
A "Tale as old as time" indeed, the original animated Beauty and the Beast film was released in 1991. The release of the animated film is by far, one of Disney's best and has won multiple awards including the Golden Globe Award for Best Picture and the Academy Award for Best Original Score. So it isn't much of a surprise that the film has spawned two sequels, and that this year, Disney brings the Live Action Adaptation of Beauty and the Beast.
Beauty And The Beast Live Adaptation
According to CNN, the live adaptation of the timeless film was directed by Bill Condon, who is known for movies such as "Dreamgirls" and "Chicago". Through the use of new and classic songs from the original film, which is paired up with a well-told backstory, the adaptation is expected to go beyond expectations. This classic touch to the adaptation has been a welcoming sight as the movie flows through like a well-oiled machine.
However, the visual effects are not that bad. From the design of Beast to the generated images of the various servants of the prince, which are voiced by renowned actors and actresses such as Stanley Tucci, Ian Mckellan, Ewan McGregor, Emma Thompson, and Audra McDonald. However, this is incomparable to the movie itself, as each scene is done properly, in a way that it steadily builds up to the climactic ending that people are excited about.
How The Cast Fared In Their Roles
An article by the Guardian describes how the main cast has portrayed the characters of the story. The overall story and plot revolved around the original film. However, the adaptation was made even better because most of the cast members were able to deliver a stellar performance.
Starting with Luke Evans as Gaston, the narcissistic hunter who wants Belle to be his wife. Evens perfectly captured Gaston's characteristics as he masterfully performed the character's personality through song and dance. Alongside Evan's character is Josh Gad's character, Le Fou. Aside from his scene-stealing moment, he brought humor to the film, according to reports.
On the other hand, Dan Stevens provided a decent performance as the Beast. However, the moment of anti-climax when the Beast transforms back into his handsome appearance as the prince, somehow, became boring and insubstantial when compared to the Beast. People were accustomed to seeing the prince in his beast form most of the time.
Last but not the least, Emma Watson gave a stellar and radiant performance as Belle, as per Guardian. Although the "Harry Potter" star does not have the vocal prowess of a Broadway star, she makes up for it by giving a genuine and emotional touch to the story.
Fans can watch Disney's live adaption of the "Beauty and the Beast" as it premieres in theaters today, March 17, 2017.
