It may be a decade old story but Disney just released a new trailer of live-action drama Beauty and the Beast, which enthralled viewers around the world.
The live-action remake of the company's 1991 animated classic is slated to hit the theatres on March 17, 2017. The stunning recreation of the film stars Emma Watson, Dan Stevens and Luke Evans as Belle, The Beast and Gaston, respectively.
The first full-length trailer of Beauty and the Beast gave us some beautiful visuals and teased the audience with some classic tunes. According to Billboard, the film will feature six classic songs taken from the animated film and the stage musical, in addition to original compositions by Alan Menken and Tim Rice.
Something There and Belle are sung by Emma Watson, while Something There is served to be a turning point for Belle as she starts falling for the Beast.
Another track For Evermore is sung by the Beast (Dan Stevens), where he realises his feelings for Belle and lets her go to be with her father. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, legendary Disney composer Alan Menken revealed that there are going to be three never-before-heard soundtracks to be featured in the movie.
Amongst other songs, Gaston sung by Luke Evans along with Josh Gad is perhaps one of the catchier songs of the film. Beauty and the Beast sung by Emma Thompson and Be Our Guest sung by Ewan McGregor will bring a thrilling experience for all the viewers.
The film depicts the same "tale as old as time". The Beast aka Dan Stevens who lives on the edge on of town captures Belle's father; thus Belle, played by Emma Watson, agrees to stay with him in exchange for her father's freedom. Soon after, these two begin to fall for each other and the story takes a turning point and unveils some twists.
Directed by Oscar winner Bill Condon from a screenplay based on the 1991 animated film, Beauty and the Beast is produced by Mandeville Films' David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman with eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken, who won two Academy Awards. It will also 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.
