Oscar Project 2018: Beauty and the Beast

Movie: Beauty and the Beast

The animated Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney movie and I love the cast of this new version, so I was very excited about it, but wound up a little underwhelmed. It was fine, but it wasn't enchanting or transportive like the original. Maybe my expectations were too high. Still a fun watch, though!

Availability: Streaming on Netflix!

Nominated In:
Costume Design: Yes! The costumes were gorgeous and intricate AND did a very good job of mirroring the animated version but working on their own.

Production Design: My answer here is pretty much the same as the above, actually. This movie did a great job of creating a world that was recognizably that of the original but also expanded and richer.
