It’s one of Disney‘s most loved animations and 25 years after it was released in the cinema the first UK trailer for its live action version has now arrived. Beauty And The Beast will grace our cinema screens next March and after several teasers, we get our first proper look.
From Hogwarts to a remake of a classic fairytale, Emma Watson is Belle with Dan Stevens as the beast in a tale as old as time. Proving when it comes to love it’s not always taken at face value but sometimes love is found within.
Sweeping scenes and emotion director Bill Condon looks to deliver something that will pull at the heart strings of fans of the original animation. A gorgeous adaptation that pays homage not just to the 1991 animated version but also the French Rococo period the movie is set in.
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. “Beauty and the Beast” is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.
Condon looks to play it safe in the narration, with many scenes from the original all there Belle’s library, the wolf attack right down to the iconic ballroom scene. With The Jungle Book, even Maleficent the live action adaptations have been a success with only Alice In Wonderland been the blimp. It’s atmospheric, nostalgic with CGI that works really well and with Alan Menken re-recording the songs that won him the Oscar in 1991. It looks like we have another fantastic movie on the cards.
Beauty And The Beast are set for a 17th March 2017 UK, Irish and U.S release date and will also star Luke Evans, Kevin Kline, Josh Gad, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Audra McDonald, Hattie Morahan, Nathan Mack with Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson.
