Tag: Beauty and the Beast

Description: Thanks to the barnstorming success of Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book, Disney has gone all-in on its live-action fairytale formula, mapping out a film slate that extends far into 2019. Closer to home, though, we have the release of Bill Condon’s Beauty and the Beast. It’s a tale as old as time and on March 17, Condon will be unleashing an enchanting new spin on the classic that sees Emma Watson and Dan Stevens as Beauty and the Beast, respectively. If those delightful early trailers are any indication, Disney’s picture is shaping up to be a fiercely loyal redo of the 1991 classic down to the structure of each scene. Make no mistake, this is a modern retelling, not a reboot.

Release Date: March 17th, 2017
