I know this is not one of my normal types of posts, but, come on guys.  It’s Beauty and the Beast!  I absolutely adored the animated version when it came out. Went and saw it in the movies a few times, lol. I can definitely relate to Belle with the love of reading :). When I heard that they were doing a remake of Beauty and the Beast? I put the year on my calendar, and then the date when it came out!

So, with all that said, unless you’ve been living under a rock, or in the mountains with no internet or cable. You know that Beauty and the Beast is coming to theaters March 17th!  AAAAHHHHHH!  Yes, I’m going to see it this weekend! Are you? I love Emma Watson to begin with. But honestly, think that she is the perfect actress to play Belle.

Take a look at these pictures!

Beauty and the Beast

Ok….  Now, are you ready to join me in the theaters this weekend?  I mean, come on!  How can you not!  To get your kiddo’s ready for Beauty and the Beast, here are some great printables for them 🙂

From Disney’s Press Kit:

A Tale As Old As Time

Once upon a time, there was a dashing young Prince (Dan Stevens) who lived in a magnificent castle. He hosted extravagant parties attended by beautiful debutantes from around the world and was pampered by a staff of servants who tended to his every whim, but the Prince had become insolent and self-absorbed. When an old beggar woman appears at the castle seeking shelter from the storm and offers him a single rose in return, he callously turns her away, unaware that she is, in fact, a beautiful enchantress (Hattie Morahan).

To punish him for his cruelty, she places a curse on the castle, transforming him into a Beast and all its inhabitants into household objects. To reverse the spell, he must learn to love another and be worthy of their love in return before the last petal of an enchanted rose falls…otherwise, he will remain a beast and his staff their inanimate forms, imprisoned in the castle for all eternity.

Some years later in the small town of Villeneuve, Belle (Emma Watson), a bright and spirited young woman, goes about her daily chores, pondering the monotony of her provincial life. Fiercely independent and preferring to keep to herself, for the most part, Belle lives with her father, Maurice (Kevin Kline), a reclusive artist, and is an avid reader who dreams of adventure and romance in a world far beyond the confines of her French village.

The town’s residents, however, are unsure what to think of her, for as virtuous and kind as she is beautiful, Belle remains a complete enigma. She rejects the relentless advances of the arrogant and boorish rogue, Gaston (Luke Evans), who holds court in a country inn with his sidekick LeFou (Josh Gad) and has every eligible woman in town wrapped around his finger. Gaston is smitten with Belle, but she is strong-willed and remains impervious to his charms.

Maurice sets off for the market and is attacked by wolves. He becomes lost in the woods and stumbles upon the Beast’s castle, now darkened and iced over, where he takes refuge. Enraged in finding Maurice trespassing, the Beast takes him prisoner. Belle learns of her father’s disappearance and sets off in search of him. She comes face to face with the Beast, with whom she pleads for his release. Eventually trading her own freedom for her father’s.

While locked away in a tower of the ominous castle, Belle hears friendly voices. Those of the enchanted household objects, who can now speak as a result of the spell. She is introduced to the former members of the castle’s staff, including: Lumière (Ewan McGregor), a candelabra; Cogsworth (Ian McKellen), a mantel clock; Mrs. Potts (Emma Thompson), a teapot; Madame de Garderobe (Audra McDonald), a wardrobe; Plumette (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), a feather duster; and Maestro Cadenza (Stanley Tucci), a harpsichord.

Hopeful that Belle may finally be the one capture the heart of the Beast, they watch and wait for any signs of true love. But the Beast is surly and ill-mannered and accepted his fate. Given their conflicted relationship, rife with animosity and resentment. Romance appears out of the question, but Belle has a loving nature and the ability to see what other people cannot. And begins to sense the kind heart of the Prince within. The Beast can be generous, sharing his library with her, and chivalrous, placing his life in danger to protect her, and he makes her laugh. Belle is courageous, fearlessly standing up for herself, and compassionate, nursing the Beast’s wounds when he is injured on her behalf. Together, they enjoy reading and discussing works of literature…she inspires him to become a better person, and he slowly begins to come back to life.

    From the looks of it they did a great job in recreating the animated film into a live action. It looks similar in costume design but very fitting and not too over the top. Emma Watson does seem like a good casting choice for Belle

    I seriously loved the movie and it was every bit as beautiful as the animated one, maybe even better since Belle is so much more confident in this new version. Thanks for the lovely printables!

    We didn’t even try to go see Beauty and the Beast this weekend. We knew it would be packed and always like to let the crowds die down first. Still looking forward to seeing this classic movie come alive on the screen. Love the first one of course.

    I’d love to see it, but I’m the only female in my house, so my movie choices are rarely observed.
