OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD
OH MY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD
Beauty and the Beast 3D was wonderful. Magical. Amazing. I think it was one of the most beautiful and emotional experiences of my life. I just- I can’t even form sentences right now.
First off: OHMYGOD THE TANGLED: EVER AFTER SHORT WAS AT THE BEGINNING. I had no idea it was going to be on there. At first I thought it was just a preview for it, but then I was like “Oh my God, this is the actual short!” I am very upset to say I was disappointed. Tangled is probably my second favorite Disney movie and I really, really overhyped myself on this (cuz if there’s anything I love almost as much as Disney, it’s weddings), and it was underwhelming. Rapunzel and Eugene were only in like a minute of it. The whole short was the horse and chameleon going on a goofy adventure. It was silly and fun and sweet, but I was just so disappointed in them for not actually focusing on the wedding. I WANT HER VEIL THOUGH. WHEN I GET MARRIED I WANT A VEIL THAT LONG. Okay, now on to the movie.
The biggest reason it was so powerful for me was that it is literally my favorite fairy tale story of all time, in the whole world, ever. And also my favorite Disney movie period. So it was just like HHNNNNNNGGGGGGGGG
But even with my bias aside, it was so wonderful. I kind of expected it to just be like when I went to see Lion King 3D, which was super fun and enjoyable, but the 3D was just pretty mediocre. But it seems they improved on it alot, or else BatB just had more 3D complimentary elements, because I was just BLOWN AWAY. That first shot of the movie with the trees and the rose bushes and the waterfall and the castle looming in the distance; UGH I just….chills, man.
And considering this was the first time I had seen the movie in theaters since the age of 3, I noticed so many things that just slip the senses when seeing it on a home television. With all the surround sound and enormous picture, I was noticing things that I had never ever seen before. Little intricate details in background paintings, subtle things in the music and voices; my favorite thing was that I had never before heard that faint but emotional shudder in Beast’s voice as he said “She’ll never see me as anything…but a monster.” OHMYGOD. dat voice acting
On that note: DAT SNOW AND RAIN. The use of 3D on the raindrops and snowflakes was just MINDBLOWING. It was sooooooo cooooooooooooool you don’t even know.
There were just…..so many things that as I was watching I wanted to rave about when I got home but I can’t remember all of them! It was just, so perfect guys…. So perfect.
BUT THE MOST PERFECT THING OF ALL: Okay, we all knew I was going to cry. I teared up at the most random moments throughout the thing, just from the sheer beauty and memories and just everything. But I started to almost sob when it got to my favorite part: right after Beast changes back into the prince, and Belle looks into his eyes and says, “It is you!” Yeah, I was shaking I was crying so hard. So I cried through the last few minutes of the movie, and it was beautiful, and I clapped. Then I start gathering up my popcorn and drink and stuff, preparing to sing along to the end credits song, when…
I look up, and they have superimposed original character sketches behind the credits. You guys…I am crying right now just remembering it. My heart stopped and I just completely broke down. Like, to the point people walking out of the theater were staring. This probably doesn’t make any sense to anyone, but it was a similar reaction I had when I walked into the Disney Art Store in DisneyWorld for the first time. Disney is such a huge, huge part of my life, and so is art. Without those two things, I wouldn’t even be me. It’s just…you don’t even know. I had never felt so much love and joy in my heart. (tears are rolling down my face right now) It was just such an emotional moment for me; it was like this movie was made specifically for me. Especially those sketches at the end. It’s like someone did that just for me. It’s like…almost religious how I feel about it.
But, it was perfect. Just so perfect. I can’t think of anything more perfect.
I just…I’m so happy. So full of joy and love and hope and ALL THE GOOD FEELS
