Disney's live action remake of Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens as the title characters, won the box office this weekend. Did you go see it? Here are some similar movies to watch either before or after you check out Disney's latest hit:
La Belle et la Bête (1946): Jean Cocteau's classic take on the "tale as old as time" might be different from what you remember, but its magical production design is not to be missed!
King Kong (1933): "It was beauty killed the beast." A very different imagining of the story, but also a classic! And hey, there's also a new King Kong movie in theaters now.
A.I. Artificial Intelligence (2001): While this new Beauty and the Beast is a more traditional retelling of the fairy tale, this Spielberg film is a wildly new take on Pinocchio.
Big Fish (2003): Seamlessly blending wild fantasy with our everyday world, Big Fish has a big heart and a lot of imagination.
