Emma Watson stars in this live-action reimagining of the animated Disney classic, a timeless romance full of musical wit and fantastical invention.

After eccentric inventor Maurice (Kevin Kline) is taken prisoner by a Beast (Dan Stevens), his daughter Belle (Watson) offers to take his place in exchange for his freedom. Captive in the Beast’s castle, she befriends the enchanted objects living there, including kind-hearted candelabra Lumière (Ewan McGregor) and tightly-wound clock Cogsworth (Ian McKellen). And eventually, she learns to love the Beast despite his gruff exterior.

With a stellar cast and stunning songs, this updated Beauty and the Beast captures all of the magic of the 1991 original, retelling the story with freshness and charm.
