Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. “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. »

This article originally appeared on EW.com

Disney is saying bonjour to fans of Beauty and the Beast with a brand new clip from the animated classic’s upcoming live-action remake.

Recalling the 1991 musical’s opening number, the minute-long preview, which premiered Monday, sees Belle (Emma Watson) strolling through a village as she sings verses from the character’s namesake tune, first penned by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman.

The original Beauty and the Beast, about a young woman who falls in love with a reclusive, monstrous prince, scored six Oscar nominations in 1992, winning for best original song (“Beauty and the Beast »

New Beauty And The Beast Clip Is All About Belle

4 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Looks like her time spent in Bella boot camp has paid dividends, as Emma Watson simply lights up the screen in this all-new clip for Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.

Performing a modernized version of “Belle,” Watson’s lead can be seen interacting with Maurice and other townsfolk on her way to the market. Perhaps one of the lesser-known facets of Bill Condon’s live-action reboot is that Alan Menken, the Oscar-winning composer who drew praise (and two Oscar wins!) for his celebrated work on the 1991 original, is back to score Beauty and the Beast, and up above you’ll get but a taste of what to expect come March 17th. Indeed, today’s snippet launched online to commemorate the film’s press tour getting underway in Paris, signalling that Condon’s live-action fairytale is now finally on the homestretch.

Emma Watson Sings 'Belle' in Latest Beauty and the Beast Clip

5 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, during the Golden Globe Awards, Disney aired a new TV spot for Beauty and the Beast, which showcased the first footage of Emma Watson singing part of the iconic song "Belle." Today we have a new clip that shows the actress singing the beginning of this song, as she strolls through this quaint little provincial town. This clip shows that, while the song has largely remained intact from the original animated classic, there are a few changes that were made.

The clip, which debuted at Disney Movie Trailers YouTube, shows Belle walking through town, buying a loaf of bread from the baker, although, unlike the original animated classic, she doesn't have a brief conversation with the baker. Instead, she greets a character named Monsieur Jean, who she tells she's going to return a book about two lovers, which Monsieur Jean says, "sounds boring." In the original animated film, »

Long Awaited Sequels: A Trainspotting 2 Inspired ListLong Awaited Sequels: A Trainspotting 2 Inspired ListScott Goodyer2/20/2017 9:38:00 Am

We can not be more excited about Danny Boyle's highly anticipated sequel Trainspotting 2 coming to Cineplex theatres next month!

The original 1996 movie, based on Irvine Welch's 1993 novel, defined a drug generation in the UK. With an electrifying soundtrack, a memorable group of characters and filled with moments that contributed to the pop culture of the cinema world, Trainspotting was definitely one of a kind. Not to mention a talent of a cast: Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, Ewen Bremne and Kelly Macdonald.

Well, 20 years later... the original crew is back as Renton (McGregor) returns to his home town after "choosing life" and abandoning his misfit friends. In honour of T2: Trainspotting, we have compiled our own little list of long awaited sequels.

Beauty and the Beast Sneak Peek Brings the Animated Classic to Life

17 February 2017 10:33 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While Beauty and the Beast is shaping up to be one of the first box office blockbusters of 2017, with Disney even setting up immersive opening night events in hundreds of theaters across the country, some may question the need to remake a movie as beloved and timeless as the original 1991 animated classic. Disney has released a new preview, where even director Bill Condon admits that the original movie is perfect, although he does make a pretty good case of why this "tale as old as time" should be told again for a new generation. We also hear from stars Emma Watson and Dan Stevens, who recount their personal history with the original film.

This preview, which debuted on the Disney YouTube, features director Bill Condon revealing that he wanted to remake Beauty and the Beast to tell this story in a "live-action, fully photo-real version," and to re-distinguish Belle as a 21st Century heroine. »

Another Batch Of Stunning Images For Disney’s Beauty And The Beast Has Arrived

17 February 2017 6:07 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Entertainment Weekly has peeled back the velvet curtain on Beauty and the Beast to unveil five all-new images for Disney’s fairytale epic, while there’s also a brief interview with Emma Watson reflecting on her time spent in “Belle boot camp.”

From the cavernous halls of Beast’s castle to an action shot of Watson’s Belle riding through the enchanted forest, this latest batch of pictures for Bill Condon’s remake is truly something to behold, and previous trailers have showcased just how seamless Belle and the Beast’s (Dan Stevens) interactions can be. It’s a credit to Disney’s VFX team, essentially, but as Emma Watson reveals to EW, the actors had to go endure preparations of their own before the cameras started rolling.

Emma Watson Admits She 'Grappled' With the Idea that Belle Had Stockholm Syndrome in 'Beauty and the Beast'

16 February 2017 12:00 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

While taking on the role of Belle in Beauty and the Beast seems like a dream role, Emma Watson admits that she had some reservations about portraying the character in Disney's live-action musical.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the Harry Potter star says she wrestled with the thought that Belle is a victim.

"It's something I really grappled with at the beginning: the Stockholm-syndrome question," she explains. "That's where a prisoner will take on the characteristics of and fall in love with the captor."

Upon further research into the fairy tale, Watson liked that Belle always pushes back with Beast. "She has none of the characteristics of someone with Stockholm syndrome because she keeps her independence; she keeps that freedom of thought," she explains.

A Pompous Gaston Belts Out A Tune In Latest Clip For Beauty And The Beast

14 February 2017 2:00 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ever since Disney peeled back the velvet curtain on its enchanting first teaser for Bill Condon’s Beauty and the Beast – a promo that would go on to smash records left, right and center – the Mouse House described its fantastical yarn as a tale as old as time.

The beloved 1991 original may stand as the primary source of inspiration – watch the two versions side by side and you’ll discover that, in some sequences, Condon’s reimagining is essentially a shot-for-shot remake – but Beauty and the Beast can be traced all the way back to Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont’s iconic fairytale from the late 18th century. Few properties can hold a candle (a Lumière?) to its historic legacy, but on March 17th, Disney and Bill Condon will introduce Beauty and the Beast like we’ve never seen them before.

First Beauty and the Beast Clip Arrives, New Songs Unveiled

14 February 2017 1:29 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Since it's Valentine's Day, Disney thought it would be the perfect time to unveil the first clip from their new live action version of the "tale as old as time," Beauty and the Beast. Luke Evans appeared on ABC's Good Morning America earlier, where he introduced a sneak peek video from this highly-anticipated romance, hitting theaters March 17. While the clip isn't terribly long, it does give us our first look at both Luke Evans' character Gaston and Josh Gad's Le Fou, and we also have videos from Luke Evans' live Twitter Q&A this morning, plus a new TV spot and a portion of Josh Groban's song "Evermore" from the film.

The clip is part of a five-minute segment that was posted on the Good Morning America YouTube, with the clip coming at the 2:43 mark. The clip in question gives fans a brief glimpse at the iconic "Gaston" song, »

Hollywood Flashback: When Leonardo DiCaprio Hit 'The Beach' in Berlin

13 February 2017 10:47 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Director Danny Boyle returns to the Berlin Film Festival with T2 Trainspotting, the sequel to the 1997 cult hit that peacefully reunites the director with his early discovery, Ewan McGregor. The two had a falling out after McGregor, who starred in Boyle’s first three films (Shallow Grave, Trainspotting and A Life Less Ordinary), was led to believe that he’d also lead the buzzy adaptation of Alex Garland’s The Beach. The role instead went to Leonardo DiCaprio, triggering a 10-year feud between Boyle and McGregor.

Berlinale 2017: Boyle's 'T2 Trainspotting' is a Nostalgic Kick in the Ass

10 February 2017 6:48 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The boys are back in town. After 20 years, writer/director Danny Boyle has reunited the four crazy kids from Trainspotting for the sequel - titled T2: Trainspotting. This film isn't so much of a reboot or remake or another wild story of drug trips, as it is a much more somber, sober follow-up looking at how much life has changed since they were young and full of life and didn't give a shit about anything. This film plays heavily on nostalgia, which makes sense considering the first film is so iconic, and yet still has so much to say about life and where it takes us and the dreams we stop chasing. It's a somewhat sad look at how much real life sucks and getting old sucks and things just aren't the same anymore. Where are drugs when we need them? The four old friends are back: Ewan McGregor as Renton, »

Belle Loves Voldemort in Beauty and the Beast Mashup Video

10 February 2017 4:24 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One of this year's biggest movies is just one month away, with Disney's Beauty and the Beast hitting theaters on March 17. Before this blockbuster-to-be arrives though, a hilarious mashup video has surfaced. It's essentially the Beauty and the Beast trailer featuring Emma Watson as Belle, with the iconic beast, played by Dan Stevens, nowhere to be found. Taking the Beast's place, through some inventive editing, is none other than Ralph Fiennes' Lord Voldemort from the Harry Potter franchise. This hilarious recut portrays this odd couple as a match made in heaven, and it actually meshes with the real trailer quite nicely.

The video comes courtesy of YouTube channel Pistol Shrimps, which carefully drops Voldemort in place of The Beast, and the result is perfect. Before Emma Watson signed on to play the iconic Belle, she spent a decade playing Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movies, actually fighting Voldemort »

Review: ‘T2: Trainspotting’ is a Nostalgia-Heavy, Melancholic Sequel

10 February 2017 12:22 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Something happened at my midnight public screening in London of Danny Boyle’s sequel to his 1996 smash. A heckler at the back, perhaps influenced by alcohol or the fact that he had been ground down by the film’s incessant flashbacks and reminiscence, aimed at the screen and shouted “nostalgic shite.” And that half-sums up T2: Trainspotting, a movie whose advent looks only to have been beckoned by fans’ longing to see the original film’s gang back together. Still, I mean half when I say it, and Boyle’s verve as a director means there’s still plenty of vibrant imagery, alongside a script that, although lacking any of the electricity of the original’s state-of-the-nation wisecracks (“Scotland is a nation colonized by wankers”), is funny and disarmingly melancholic.

The first film’s breakout stars Ewan McGregor, Johnny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner, and Robert Carlyle all return, and »
