It seems like all kinds of classic Disney tales are being made into live-action films these days, and it looks like Beauty and the Beast is next in line.
According to the description of the official video, the movie will follow the source material fairly close if the description is to be believed.
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.
With Emma Watson taking center stage as Belle, Dan Stevens as Beast, Luke Evans as Gaston, along with several big names voicing the inanimate object characters like Ian Mckellen as Cogsworth and Emma Thompson voicing Mrs. Potts, this is one star-studded cast with a lot of experience under their collective belts!
Beauty and the Beast hits theaters March 17, 2017.
