12 Thoughts while watching Beauty and the Beast.

Beauty and the Beast has always been our favourite Disney movie, (sharing the top spot with Tangled when that came along) We feel we simply related to Belle the most, with her love of books, and we adored that she was kind hearted and sweet. The moment we found out that Emma Watson was playing Belle in a live action movie was the moment we were ready to watch the movie, like right there and then. So needless to say, when it was released this past Friday we were the first in line. Today we share some of the thoughts swirling around our brains while watching the tale as old as time...

The narrator begins speaking and go...

1. This is so exciting, it looks just like the animated version.

2. How absolutely stunning is Emma Watson? And the blue and white pinafore outfit, it's a dream.

3. This song takes us back to childhood. (Bonjour, farewell....)

4. Really, how amazing is this? We can't believe it's real life. (Well, a movie, but real life, you know what we mean. :p )

5. We are so, so happy they chose Emma Watson to play Belle. Could she be more perfect?

6. Luke Evans and Josh Gad are a brilliant duo. Love that Josh Gad is in it.

7. Oh look the Beast. Wow, he looks awesome. They did the Beast really, really well. Is it all C.G.I or is Dan Stevens under there somewhere in all the Beasty makeup?

8. Oh my goodness, it's time for THE scene. Oh that beautiful yellow dress, the dancing, the lights. It's so magical, we have goose bumps.

9. It feels like this movie has always been like this, even though it was animated when we first saw it as kids, it's like the story is such a part of us that seeing it live is like it's meant to be. That probably makes no sense whatsoever but we're running with it. Anyone else feel like this too?

10. How bloody magnificent is the C.G.I and effects on Lumiere, Chip, Mrs. Potts and Cogsworth. It's beyond incredible.

11. That was absolutely magical. Disney at it's finest. We want to watch it again, like, now.

12. Can we please have a library like Belle and the Beast?

Bonus thought: Disney pretty please do a live action Tangled and make sure that Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi play Rapunzel and Flynn!! Thank you!!

But seriously, Tangled would HAVE TO, like really HAVE TO be Zachary Levi and Mandy Moore, don't play with us and use anyone else, we will most definitely cry!

Have you seen Beauty and the Beast yet? What did you think? What Disney movie would you love to see in live action?

Have a wonderful day.



  1. I think Pocahontas would be really beautiful as a live action film but I love the original so much, I wouldn't want them to mess it up! I haven't actually seen Beauty and the Beast at the cinemas yet but after reading this I'm really excited to because it sounds like they've done the original justice.

    1. We bet that would be too! We heard that over the next few years they are going to make around 19 live action movies, so Pocahontas could definitely be one! :) They really, really did, it was just beautiful! :) We hope you enjoy it!


  2. Totally agree with all of these thoughts! I loved the film so much and Emma did an amazing job as Belle! :) Tania Michele xx
