Romantic Poster for Disney’s ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Revealed
The British actress Emma Watson has shared a new romantic poster for Disney’s live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, which is a nice tribute to the original theatrical poster for the animated classic of 1991.
Watson is set to play the movie’s eponymous protagonists, Belle, while Dan Stevens co-stars as her unlikely romantic suitor the Beast (formerly known as Prince Adam). Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, the feather duster; Audra McDonald as Madame Garderobe, the wardrobe; Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts also star.
The Bill Condon-directed remake will feature original songs by Oscar winner Alan Menken and will be released in theaters on March 17, 2017. Stephen Chbosky penned the script. Check out the official Beauty and the Beast poster below.
It could bring something new or pay homage to the original while also being it’s own thing. But for now, every single thing we have seen from this movie is just holding itself on the original.
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.
