There are so many great film’s on Disney’s upcoming slate fore 2017… but one of the movies I’m most excited for is their live action version of my favorite Disney animated classic, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST! Today I’m sharing with you brand new images from the film that are just STUNNING. Emma Watson (HARRY POTTER Series) plays Belle, while Dan Stevens (DOWNTON ABBEY) is the Beast. Directed by Bill Condon, I just love love LOVE that Disney has chosen to reimagine this tale “as old as time” and iconic characters to a new generation of audiences. The talent cast Luke Evans (Gaston), Kevin Kline (Maurice), Josh Gad (Le Fou), Ewan McGregor (Lumière), Stanley Tucci (Cadenza), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Plumette), Audra McDonald (Garderobe), Ian McKellen (Cogsworth) and Emma Thompson (Mrs. Potts).
Now I could chit chat all day about the awesomeness that is BEAUTY AND THE BEAST… but I know you probably just want to see the amazing photos. However I can’t resist getting in a few tidbits about this Disney classic! BEAUTY AND THE BEAST was not only the third highest grossing film of 1991, but it was also the FIRST animated feature ever nominated for an Oscar in the Best Picture category. The film lost out, but did win Oscars for Best Score and Best Song. I bet you are humming the film’s tunes now, aren’t you? Plus let’s not forget the successful Broadway musical, with it’s 13 year run, inspired by the Disney’s version!
