How gorgeous is this new poster?
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.
The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar® winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Golden Globe® nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.
The line-up of talent in this movie is unbelievable! Be still my heart Dan Stevens and Ewan McGregor! And I've been a fan of Emma Thompson for a very long time (I absolutely loved her in Sense and Sensibility!).
This clip of Emma Watson singing "Belle" reminds me a bit of that iconic moment with Julie Andrews in the Sound of Music. I think Emma Watson is a wonderful choice for Belle, though I wonder if the final film will feature her accent so heavily. I've always been curious as to why the talent for French pieces are usually British actors/actresses (Les Miserables for example). Regardless, I love Emma Watson too much to be bothered by it.
What are your thoughts about the new tv spot?
