Beauty and the Beast – Film Review

I thoroughly enjoyed this re-make on the traditional Disney film, and even with a few added scenes and songs it was very true to the original. I loved the human live acting with animation of iconic characters such as the Beast, Lumiere and Clogswoth, it fascinated me how real they can make certain things look with CGI.

Multiple low angles were used to portray characters such as Gaston and the Beast look powerful and domineering however on contrary high angles were used to portray Belle and other characters to look inferior and weak in position to their surroundings and other characters. The lighting changes throughout depending on the scene as it sets the atmosphere to be dark and eerie or a bright and cheerful. It followed the Tzvetan Todorov theory of narrative, just like a typical Disney film.
