Following the cover reveal this morning, EW has now debuted eight new photos from the upcoming live-action remake of “Beauty and the Beast” at Walt Disney Pictures.
"Beauty and the Beast" has been made into a movie several times, but the 1991 Disney animated film is beloved by millennials, who will no doubt go to the Emma Watson version in droves. In this live-action re-imagining of the fairy tale, a young woman (Emma Watson) takes her father's place as prisoner in a beast's castle, only to fall in love with her beastly captor (Dan Stevens), who turns out to be a prince.
Apparently Watson herself was one of those kids who loved the Disney animated classic.
"I can’t even think how many times I watched it as a child," the former "Harry Potter" star told EW in its cover story on the new "Beast." "I knew all the words by heart. I knew all the songs by heart."
Recently, Emma also opened up to Total Film about her role in the movie.
She said: "I sing, so that’s really unexpected. I’ve never had to do that for a film role before, and I think people will be interested to see me do something very different like that.
The first exclusive pictures of the live action adaptation of the Disney classic Beauty and the Beast were released by Entertainment Weekly giving all of us our first look at our beloved characters.
There’s a shot of Emma Watson, who stars as Belle, in the iconic yellow dress, a photo of Luke Evans as Gaston showing off his sword, and, of course, an image of Dan Stevens as Beast looking through books with Belle. There’s also a shot of Cogsworth, Mrs. Potts, Lumière and Plumette.
Beauty and the Beast stars Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Josh Gad, Ian McKellan, Emma Thompson, Ewan McGregor, Kevin Cline, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Stanley Tucci. Directed by Bill Condon, the film is set for March 17, 2017 release in the US.
Disney recently pulled back the curtain on the original film as part of the film's upcoming 25th anniversary, revealing new concept art and sketches from the original movie. Several other live-action takes on Disney animated movies are in the works and set for release after Beauty and the Beast, including the recently revealed Snow White, Aladdin, and The Lion King movies, the latter of which will be directed by The Jungle Book's Jon Favreau.
