It’s a tale as old as time… and now it’s coming to life in live action! The original animated BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is a Disney classic, and was the first animated movie ever nominated for a Best Picture Oscar. How can a live action version compete with that?
By casting HARRY POTTER’s Emma Watson as Belle, for one. Bringing in Dan Stevens from DOWNTON ABBEY and THE GUEST to play the Beast - transformed by the magic of performance capture CGI - certainly helps. Then there’s director Bill Condon, whose DREAMGIRLS won a Golden Globe for Best Picture, Musical or Comedy. And to really sweeten the pot there are new songs by Alan Menken and Tim Rice, songwriters for the original film!
Huge and lush and swooningly romantic, the live action BEAUTY AND THE BEAST has all of the power and energy of the original, brought to exciting and vivid life for a whole new generation. Please, be our guest and join us for this wonderful new vision.
