One of the iconic songs, A Tale as Old a Time, is aptly appropriate when describing Beauty and the Beast. The story line is familiar to most people and Disney’s newest live action interpretation hits all the nostalgia notes and yet found its own voice also. Emma Watson plays Belle as a woman ahead of her time who believes in herself enough to not only rescue her father but also take a chance on the unknown. Surprises and twists were added to the live action edition that let it stand on its own and not just follow in the footsteps of the animated version. This movie has definitely earned it place on my DVD shelf right next to the original animated copy.
