#JustWatched Beauty and the Beast (Bill Condon, 2017)

I feel like everyone involved with this needs a nice pat on the back, a congratulations but then to be asked "What else can you do?"

Because this film, as lovely and as impressive as it is, is just a fan-film. Someone really liked the original animation and wondered what it would look with with actual people (or you know, a photo-realistic Beast and household items). It's great they developed the characters a bit more and although I didn't care for the new songs it makes sense to add a couple of new things. But when you look closely, it's just so empty. Sadly, for all the talent and work involved it's just a cash-grab in what is probably going to be a long line of cash-grabs over the next decade.
