Say bonjour to Emma Watson as Belle in new Beauty and the Beast clip!
The Beauty and the Beast press tour has officially kicked-off and we are just a couple weeks from the film hitting theaters so Disney blessed us with a NEW clip from the film. The minute plus clip features Watson’s Belle singing the 1991 original opening number, “Belle.” Check it out below…
Way to completely leave us hanging Disney! UGH!
Now I know that I have been very pro Emma Watson as Belle and I mean come on, she is literally perfect. But I have been very worried about the CGI effect on the Beast’s face – we were all spoiled by the perfection that was Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella – but this wee little clip has me more excited seeing actual sets and theaterical costumes vs all the CGI castle stuff.
Time to get official with the synopsis:
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.
Beauty and the Beast hits theaters March 17th, 2017!
