New Poster for Disney’s Live-Action Beauty and the Beast
The poster is for Disney’s upcoming live-action adaptation of the studio’s animated classic Beauty and the Beast. The film, which brings the story and characters audiences know and love to life in a stunning, cinematic event, is directed by Bill Condon and features an extraordinary ensemble cast which also includes Luke Evans, Kevin Kline, Josh Gad, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Audra McDonald, Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson. “Beauty and the Beast” will be released in U.S. theaters nationwide on March 17, 2017.
The film is base don the original animated classic which is beloved worldwide for its music, classic love story, and truly memorable characters. Disney has had some success with the live-action adaptations of their classic films, including Jean Favre’s take on The Jungle Book, which stunned audiences worldwide. We’ve also gotten a really great live-action version of the film Pete’s Dragon which was visually amazing and filled with a ton of emotion and heart. I hope that Disney continues their success with Beauty and the Beast since it is a childhood favorite of mine and so many others. The cast is promising and what little teasers we have seen of the film have piqued the interest of many a Disney fan. The set design and costumes look incredibly well done and with great care to pay an homage to the original films.
I know I’ll be seeing this many times and over again with hopes that it will become another one of the many classic Disney films and memories I hold so dear. Check out the teaser trailer below.
