I remember going to see Beauty and the Beast when it first came out in 1991. I was 17 years old and it was a first date. I loved the movie, the songs, the story. I eventually owned the movie on VHS and had the soundtrack on CD.
When the movie was released on DVD last year, I purchased for the
me the girls.They love the movie and now they are singing along to all the songs.
Last weekend, my family and I had the pleasure of seeing the advanced screening of Beauty and the Beast 3D. We were so excited!
I was a little apprehensive about the fact that it was 3D. How were they going to take a 2D movie and turn it into 3D? The CGI graphics of animated movies today are much different than the animated graphics from 20 years ago. But I put on my glasses and got goosebumps when I heard the music start.
Surprisingly the graphics were amazing! The 3D parts of the movie weren’t obtrusive and didn’t take away from the original feel of the movie. I tried very hard to find spots int he movie where you could tell that they changed the graphics during the 3D process. There were only a few spots that looked different from the original but I’m not going to point them out, because I’m sure most people aren’t going to scrutinize the movie like I did. Most of the enhancements were subtle — the dust floating in the beam of light, the puffs of smoke, the wind blowing. I would have to say that “Be Our Guest” is my favorite song and was always my favorite part of the movie; the 3D effects totally added to that scene! As you can tell, I loved it!
I hope that everyone goes to see the magic of Beauty and the Beast 3D. You won’t be disappointed!
Oh, and as a special treat before the movie starts, you’ll get to see the Tangled Ever After short film.
Here is a preview of the short film — the whole things is very cute!
The new short spotlights the royal wedding of Rapunzel (Mandy Moore) and Flynn Rider – a.k.a Eugene (Zachary Levi).
TANGLED directors Nathan Greno and Byron Howard bring back some of Disney’s most beloved characters when TANGLED EVER AFTER picks up where TANGLED left off. The Kingdom is in a festive mood as everyone gathers for the royal wedding of Rapunzel and Flynn. However, when Pascal and Maximus, as flower chameleon and ring bearer, respectively, lose the gold bands, a frenzied search and recovery mission gets underway. As the desperate duo tries to find the rings before anyone discovers that they’re missing, they leave behind a trail of comical chaos that includes flying lanterns, a flock of doves, a wine barrel barricade and a very sticky finale. Will Maximus and Pascal save the day and make it to the church in time? And will they ever get Flynn’s nose right?
If you do go see the movie, come back here and let me know what you think about it. I hope you love it too!
