The next cab off the rank in Disney Pictures’ quickly growing arsenal of live-action adaptations of their classic animated pictures is “Beauty and the Beast”. Looking like one of the best of these kind of films to date, the Bill Condon-directed feature boasts “Harry Potter” film series actress Emma Watson in the female lead role of Belle.
Like the original animated effort, the movie will boast a number of songs including all the ones in the original film along with a few additional ones. Today, the studio has released a brief clip of Watson singing the new song “Something There” which takes place in the middle of the story as Belle starts to slowly fall for Beast (Dan Stevens).
The film also stars Luke Evans as Gaston, Josh Gad as Le Fou, Kevin Kline as Maurice, Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, Stanley Tucci as Cadenza, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, and Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts. ‘Beauty’ opens March 17th.
