During my interviews with the cast of Beauty and the Beast, I fell in love with the film and all the Beauty and the Beast Gifts! The story of Belle in Beauty and the Beast is beautiful to begin with and the new additions makes it that much better.
Emma Watson was the perfect choice for Belle not only for her performance, but for who she is in life. She is an independent young woman just like Belle is in the film. Emma mentioned in our interview that she fought to give Belle an occupation. In the film, she washes clothes for a living and has used her inventing skills to make it easier so that she has time to read and teach her students. Most of the people and women in her village are illiterate so she like to help out by teaching kids in town how to read.
Crazy Old Maurice now has a legit back story and is less crazy. He is only crazy because he tells the town about The Beast that has taken his daughter. Also, he is a little odd in comparison to the rest of the town because he is educated and has chosen to educated his daughter. The rest of the town has chosen to keep the women in the town illiterate. The movie reminds you of a time when women were kept in the dark. It makes me want to read even more than I do now (12 books per year).
Every plot hole that my husband brings up from the original is filled in by the new live action version of Beauty and the Beast. It feels good to have the whole story of Belle and her Beast! Beauty and the Beast is now live in theaters. I would love to hear your opinion.
