For media educator

Beauty and the Beast is a musical film set in an imaginative fairy tale world with humor and romance. The film follows Disney’s animated version from 1991, but the most exciting scenes are more powerful. The plot is multi-generational, but it is easier to follow the characters that stand out from each other.

Typical of fairy tales, good people, such as the witty and kind-hearted Belle, are rewarded for their good deeds. Selfish and cruel characters again experience a miserable end. The most multidimensional character in the film is the Monster, who suffers the consequences of his selfishness, but eventually gets rid of his bitterness and falls in love with Belle. (Source
