Walt Disney Studios invites you (again) to be their guest!
They didn’t have to ask me twice! I’m already crashing this live-action film (official trailer below)!
Beauty and the Beast is the re-imagining of the classic fairy tale, where a young woman (Emma Watson) takes her father’s place as prisoner in a beast’s castle, only to fall in love with her beastly captor (Dan Stevens), who turns out to be a prince. [I’ve NEVER heard of this actor!]
Walt Disney Feature Animation in 1991 released the American animated musical romantic fantasy to adoring audiences that earned the film $425 million at the box office. That would be around $751 million today. I mean, who can forget songs like, “Be Our Guest” and “Beauty and the Beast“!
Beauty and the Beast is the latest in a string of animated films to be turned into live-action, following the success of The Jungle Book and others.
Beauty and the Beast is led by an all-star cast (Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Kevin Kline, Ian McKellen, and others), who lend their talents (voices included) to what looks like the makings of another win at the box office for Walt Disney Studios.
They’ll definitely be cashing in on the nostalgia with an audience (fan base) of 2-3 generations. We gotta have those “‘member berries” (South Park reference)!
The film (Beauty and the Beast) hits theatres March 17th, 2017 and is directed by Bill Condon (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn 1 and 2).
Enjoy the trailer! #BeOurGuest
