I was so lucky to be able to attend a special advanced screening of Beauty And The Beast thanks to IMAX at the Chinese theater in Hollywood, CA.
Before our screening began there was a wonderful live Q & A with Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, and Josh Gad. It was amazing to hear not just how much work went into making this film come to life but also all the careful thought and detail that was put into it.
Down in the video below I go into some detail about the film and what I think of it.
But over all I love the casting choices.
Many of these roles were so difficult to bring to the big screen because of their famous Cartoon counterparts.
One of the most challenging of these being Gaston. He is such a hard role to make seem real or believable yet Luke did such a perfect job of making him not just believable but blend right into this wonderful new world that Bill created.
