The new trailer for Disney's live action adaptation starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens has been released.
This writer isn't much of a Disney guy, but he'll admit he got a wee bit misty-eyed during those two minutes. Judging by this trailer, the spirit of the original appears to be well and truly intact, and there are sure to be a paucity of dry eyes in the house on release night. From a technical standpoint, the score sounds wonderful, the production design is on-point, and the few glimpses we get of the choreographed dance scenes look majestic.
This is another in a recent slew of live action adaptation produced by Disney, adapting their classic animated movies. Emma Watson is playing Belle, while Dan Stevens (that guy who shoots all the people in The Guest) is playing Beast, and Luke Evans is Gaston. The voice talent is also stacked as hell, featuring Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Ewan McGregor, Stanley tucci, Emma Thompson, and Ian McKellen, among others.
Beauty and the Beast is set to grace our cinema screens on the 17th of March, 2017.
