Adapted from Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont's century fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast is a 2017 live-action remake of Disney's 1991 animated film of the same title. Disney finally gave new life to this classic tale as old as time by bringing in Emma Watson as the well-loved bookworm, Belle. Did you know that the film grossed over $1.2 billion worldwide against a production budget of $255 million, making it one of the most expensive films in history? It claimed the title of being the second-highest-grossing film of 2017, falling behind only to Star Wars: The Last Jedi. It is a critically-acclaimed film, with reviewers praising its cast's performance, production value, music, and its congruity with the original animated film. Indeed, the story didn't fail its audience to fall head-over-heels in love with the film. This may be due mostly to Emma Watson's depiction of Belle. Indeed, Watson gave only her best in playing as Belle. Another reason may be the message that the film implies; how love comes in all forms and shapes. Finally, the creators also brought along a more progressive twist by bringing in the gay character Le Fou played by Josh Gad: Le Fou served as a symbol of the existence of varying sexual orientations dating back to older times.
