They did switch a few things up, such as giving more of the back story about the beast, which I happened to really like getting a better picture of him, and a few other things that I don’t want to spoil it for anyone. I will say though, I had a slight disappointment with the prince. I guess since he transforms from this big powerful beast I was just expecting someone a little more, rugged and muscular, perhaps. And then we see, him. Not a bad prince by any means—just not what I was expecting. Even in the cartoon he had a little more girth to him. This is going to sound weird but I kind of enjoyed him better as the beast. There I said it. I guess I have a thing for the beast.
Overall, it was a great movie. If you’re planning on taking young kids with you to see it, to be honest, I would say it’s probably more appropriate for children seven plus. We did see some younger kids in the theater that during the kill the beast scenes started to get a little scared. You just have to remember things are bigger and louder in a theater, and in general the purpose of those scenes are a little more intense. Then again, you know your children best and their maturity level and what they can handle, so use your best judgement.
