During tonight’s 74th Annual Golden Globes, Disney dropped a new TV spot for the upcoming live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast featuring more of Emma Watson singing as Belle and it sounds absolutely fantastic. I truly believe Alan Menken is going to outdo his original score for the animated classic with the new version he has made for this remake.
Beauty and the Beast hits theaters March 17, 2017.
The film stars Emma Watson as Belle, Dan Stevens as the Beast, Luke Evans as Gaston, Josh Gad as Le Fou, Ewan McGregor as Lumière, Sir Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, Kevin Kline as Belle’s father Maurice, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, with a script penned by Evan Spiliotopoulos and Stephen Chbosky, directed by Bill Condor.
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.
