If you know anything about me, you know I’m obsessed with anything Disney. So, it was no surprise that the company’s live-action adaptation of the classic movie is one of my favourite films of 2017. After an impressive run at the international box office, the film finally arrives home and is now available to purchase on DVD and Blu Ray.
“Beauty and the Beast” is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a Beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart of the true Prince within. The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston amongst other impressive actors.
