Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.
That’s the official synopsis of the upcoming live-action retelling of the Disney classic. And judging by the final trailer, it seems as if the filmmakers are going for a direct carbon copy of the original. That should be a good thing considering some of the recent live-action remakes have taken liberties of sorts with each classic fairy tale.
With an all-star cast led by Emma Watson, Kevin Kline, Dan Stevens and Luke Evans combined with the voice talents of Josh Gad, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson Beauty and the Beast is destined to be a sure fire hit for Disney in 2017. Catch the tale as old as time in Malaysian cinemas on March 16, 2017.
