Beauty & the Beast Teaser Trailer

If you had any doubt about whether or not Disney can take some of their most treasured animated films and turn them into live-action features, I encourage you to see 2015’s Cinderella and this year’s The Jungle Book. Both were impeccably created and did their beloved animated versions justice and then some. Today, Disney released the first teaser for 2017’s live-action version of one of my favorites Beauty & the Beast. Watch it below:

Not only is the film going to be live action but it will also be a live action musical! Our favorite songs from the 1991 animated film are back! You truly can’t have a Beauty & the Beast film without such classics as “Be Our Guest” and the theme song “Beauty & the Beast”.  Take a look at the extremely talented cast.

Disney's Live Action Musical Beauty & the Best Cast, Opens March 17th, 2017

Beauty & the Beast Live Action Musical opens March 17th, 2017!

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; Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, the feather duster; six-time Tony Award® winner Audra McDonald as Madame Garderobe, the wardrobe; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts. 

Directed by Oscar® winner Bill Condon from a screenplay by TBD based on the 1991 animated film, the film is produced by Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman with eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken, who won two Academy Awards® (Best Original Score and Best Song) for the 1991 animated film, providing the score, which will include new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and Howard Ashman, as well as several new songs written by Menken and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice. “Beauty and the Beast” will be released in U.S. theaters on March 17, 2017.
