1 min read


Disney’s live-action revolution is marching on! The House of Mouse’s next adaptation of an animated classic is Beauty and the Beast, which sees Emma Watson and Dan Stevens playing the respective titular roles. We’ve already seen a trailer for the upcoming film, but it was more about showing off how closely director Bill Condon had managed to hew to the aesthetics of the original.Thanks to EW though, we now have our first real proper look at the movie and its cast.

The publication debuted their latest cover, which features Watson as Belle and Stevens digitally enhanced to his Beastly form. They also showed off nine new pics, which features Luke Evans as Gaston, Josh Gad as Le Fou, Kevin Kline as Belle’s father Maurice, as well the animated characters of Lumiere, Cogsworth and Mrs Potts, respectively voiced by Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellen and Emma Potts.

Beauty and the Beast will see Alan Menken, the eight-time Oscar winning composer of the 1991 original, returning with three new songs he penned with the legendary Tim Rice. The film is scheduled for release on March 17, 2017.
