BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is a live action version of the classic Disney animation in which a woman is imprisoned in an enchanted castle.

Violence

A character is knocked unconscious with a heavy punch to the face, then tied to a tree and left for wolves. However, he is later rescued. There is mild fantasy violence in a battle sequence in which an angry mob clashes with magical characters, and in a fight scene that includes several kicks and punches. A character shoots another three times in the back, but there is no blood or injury detail on screen, and the victim survives.

Threat

Scenes of mild threat include two sequences in which characters are chased and attacked by wolves. In several brief scenes, people are frightened by another character's physical appearance and threatening behaviour. It is later revealed that this character is not dangerous.

There is a potentially upsetting scene in which a character experiences a flashback vision of her mother, who was killed by the plague. In the vision, the mother has some dark spots on her face, and is attended by a plague doctor wearing a beaked mask.
