As you must know, Disney is recreating most of their animated movies into live-action films. And it’s time for the classic Beauty &The Beast. The 1991 movie will have its remake on March 17, 2017. Belle will be played by the one and only Emma Watson and the Beast/Price role is taken by Dan Stevens.
The remake promises to be the same tale we remember, but they included one new character and three songs written especially for the movie. The film was directed by Bill Condon who signed the first contract for Beauty and The Beast on June 4th, 2014. The movie started shooting on May 18th, 2015 and the cast ended the filming on August 27th of the same year.
Between the incredible cast, we can find Luke Evans as Gaston, Kevin Kline as Maurice, Josh Gad as LeFou, Adrian Schiller in the role of Monsieur D’Araque, Hattie Morahan as the Enchantress and Zoe Rainey playing Belle’s mother. Also voices like Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson, Stanley Tucci,Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Audra McDonald and Nathan Mack.
The remake was filmed in France,and this is the first time we see the cast in their roles, thanks to Entretainment Weekly for the amazing pics.
This is the first look at the stars wearing the classic outfits
Dan Stevens looks unrecognizable dressed as The Beast, while Emma Watson looks gorgeous in that famous golden dress. Here they are recreating one of the the most iconic scenes of the movie.
Luke Evans as Gaston and Josh Gad as LeFou
You know he’s a good actor when you already hate him for the evil look on his face. Evan has the perfect villain feeling.
There he is, planting fear in the room. We are so excited to see his performance.
Look how fantastic these figures look
I remember when I was a child these were my favorite characters of the movie. They look so real and fancy in live-action!
Kevin Kline as Maurice, perfect for a comeback
This is Kline’s first Disney part since he had the role of Phoebus in The Hunchback of Notre Dame and The Hunchback of Notre Dame II.
The ballroom is just perfect
The locations are like extracted from the original animated movie, how did the do it?
The library is as magical as the story
I’m sure Emma had a blast in here, she has a degree in Literature. Maybe the 1740 original book’s in here.
The most beautiful you’ll get to see them
They actually look royal. The prince looks handsome and the golden dress suits Belle perfectly.
