Beauty and the Beast

Hong Kong school tells parents to stop their children watching new Disney film over gay scenes Beauty and the Beast

The Beauty and the Beast soundtrack is out now.

Directed by Bill Condon, who is known for both parts one and two of "Breaking Dawn", there should have been more question about whether or not this movie would turn out okay.

Gaston, who is played by Luke Evans, is the character everyone loves to hate. It's a fresh take on a magical classic.

She opens the film in song, as an over-the-top opera singer visiting the prince's castle. And Josh makes something really subtle and delicious out of it. Why is she in the provincial town? To break the spell that turned him into a monster, Beast must learn to love another and earn her love in return. The opening "Belle" number adheres close to the animation but after the wolves scene, it was all a fresh vision of the story - similar plot points but original filmmaking. I don't know if I would have liked it better if I hadn't seen the original animated film so many times, but even if it doesn't add much to it it also doesn't tarnish its memory. The cinematography is handsome, and so are the colors. Recreating one of the film's most recognisable and beloved images, United Kingdom fans will use their tweets to make the rose's petals drop one by one - unlocking a host of exciting prizes as each petal falls, including a year's supply of IMAX tickets.

Disney fans are also in for another treat. This couldn't happen without a talented director and a gifted cast.

Belle, as portrayed by Emma Watson, was shockingly one of the weaker performances in the movie. It's mainly a recreation of the original film, but manages to squeeze in some additional context that make its characters more fully-rounded, and their circumstances more understandable.

Kline is good in just about anything he does, but playing the eccentric and well-meaning father suits him well.

"Largely devoid of imagination, this "Beauty And The Beast" will likely hit its mark with plenty of viewers". She takes her work very seriously.

The vocal cast is wonderful: Ewan McGregor is Lumiere, Cogsworth the clock is voiced by Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson is Mrs. Potts, Nathan Mack is Chip, the little cup, Audra McDonald is Madame Garderobe, Gugu Mbatha-Raw is Plumette and Stanley Tucci is Maestro Cadenza.

Thank you. Take care! "Those who always desired a little more depth from "Beauty and the Beast" will be happy, too: There's something there that wasn't there before". This version just might become the overwhelming favorite.

You can see The Enchanted Rose here and the competition runs until Saturday 18th March.

I like the way all the characters develop, particularly when they grapple with what loss has created in their lives.

From those approving critics, it seems that the Disney magic has worked its charm yet again with this epically-staged film.
