We get some great looks at the iconic characters, and great set pieces. The film also looks to take the same path that Cinderella did , and not make everything look as cartoony. That’s kind of a mixed bag, as we love the old look of the characters, but having a candlestick with a definite set of eyes and mouth just isn’t practical. The new look and feel of the characters are fantastic, and the Beast himself seems to flow with that charm that came from the animated film.
Let’s hope the film covers enough new ground to keep it fresh, while staying true to the beauty that made the first film so damn good.
