Also starring Luke Evans, Josh Gad, Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson, Ewan McGregor, and Stanley Tucci.

Rated PG. Fantasy/Romance. Directed by Bill Condon. 2h 10m.

What the Critics Say:

“It looks good, moves gracefully and leaves a clean and invigorating aftertaste. I almost didn’t recognize the flavor: I think the name for it is joy.” – The NYTimes

“A touching, eminently watchable, at times slightly awkward experience that justifies its existence yet never totally convinces you it's a movie the world was waiting for.” – Variety

“Beauty and the Beast does right by its predecessor, delivering a musical experience that both dazzles the eyes and plucks the heartstrings.” – Screen Rant

Finally! The long-awaited, live-action remake of the delightful Disney classic is here! The songs we know by heart, the beloved characters, and the amazing cast of actors – we are overwhelmed with excitement. This movie will fill you with joy and nostalgia and is perfect for the whole family.
