This movie is being re-released in theaters in 3D! It was very cool to see this in 3D since I had already seen this movie at home in 2D. The 3D effects add a lot to the movie. This movie is all about Belle who finds out her father was taken by a Beast and she sets out to save him. She decides to take her father's place as the Beast's prisoner so that her father can go free. Belle will have to stay at the castle for the rest of her life. Belle starts to get to know the Beast and realizes he isn't so and after all. There is an enchantment on the castle and if the Beast doesn't learn to love another and have that person return the love then he will stay a Beast forever and everyone in the castle will also stay the way they are. Some of the main characters in the movie are Belle, Belle's father, the Beast and Gaston. My favorite character is Chip. He is Mrs. Potts son and he is a little teacup. I like him because he is super funny and so tiny and cute. At the end he says a really funny catchphrase to make people laugh. Chip says, "Do I still have to sleep in the cupboard?" even though he already turned back into a boy. I thought that was really funny. The re-release of this movie in 3D is really cool. You can really feel like you can reach out and touch the trees and the castle in the movie. The Beast in 3D is pretty scary at first (scarier in 3D than he was in 2D). Also, when they sing "Be Our Guest" that whole scene is really cool because all the dishes and silverware are singing and dancing and that looks really cool in 3D. During the fight scene at the end of the movie when the townspeople break into the castle the clock is coming down the stairs it looks like he is flying right at me. They do really good job. I recommend this movie for all ages because the scary parts in the movie aren't that bad. The Beast may scare some younger kids but only for a minute and throughout the movie they learn that he is really nice after all. It is also really funny. Go out and see the re-release of Disney's Beauty and the Beast in 3D on January 13th. Anthony Aranda, Age 9, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic.
Belle is a girl who is dissatisfied with life in a small provincial French town, constantly trying to fend off the misplaced "affections" of conceited Gaston. The Beast is a prince who was placed under a spell because he could not love. A wrong turn taken by Maurice, Belle's father, causes the two to meet.
