Disney’s live action adaptation of the classic fairy tale Beauty and the Beast is nearing its global release next month. The promotion campaign bandwagon is catching up with the understandable groundswell of interest, today there is a new clip from the film out to tease and delight.
Emma Watson is front and centre in the clip, and we follow her through the town as she sings a jaunty tune. It’s all extremely pleasant. The visual detail is quite something with the moustaches in particular leading the way in the cartoon-like quality stakes. Those are some serious whiskers on the baker for example. It’s a sumptuous affair as expected, and Bill Condon appears to have captured the charming spirit of the beloved 1991 animated version.

A new Beauty and the Beast clip has been released by Walt Disney Pictures ahead of the release of the forthcoming live-action version of their classic 1990s film. The new clip shows Emma Watson as Belle walking through her village to return a book…
I’m in the camp of the fans really looking forward to seeing this new interpretation of the classic Disney work, though I know that there are some pretty big doubters out there. I’m not sure whether its the look of the film, or the retouching of a classic Disney story that probably should not even begin to be messed with. May I remind you that we thought the same of The Jungle Book last year, and Jon Favreau’s finished film turned out to be something quite special.

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. »

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 »

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.

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, »
Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” topped social media buzz last week as it generated nearly 130,000 new conversations, according to media-measurement firm comScore and its PreAct service.

Jason from Mnpp here with a tidbit of movie news that hit over the weekend - it is official: after a few months of rumors the legendary Dame Angela Lansbury has joined the cast of Mary Poppins Returns, the sequel that Rob Marshall is currently directing with Emily Blunt stuffing her little feet into the great big sturdy shoes of Julie Andrews. The film will tackle elements drawn from the other seven books that Poppins author P.L. Travers (and tell me you don't immediately picture Emma Thompson when I say that name) wrote about the characters.
Lansbury is set to play "The Balloon Lady," and having never read the books I had to do some real digging to find out who the heck that supposedly "beloved" character was -- not even Wikipedia was any help. Thankfully Homorazzi knew what was up:
"Her character was introduced in Mary Poppins Comes Back, »

It's another year, and so we have been blessed yet again with a new live-action adaptation of a classic Disney film.
The highly anticipated Beauty and the Beast hits theatres this March with a dream cast including Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Ewan McGregor, Emma Thompson and Josh Gad. We could not be more excited to re-live the magic of one of our favourite stories. We're also using this as an excuse to look back at previous Disney live-action remakes and look forward to what's to come.

Mary Poppins Returns is positively brimming with talent. Emily Blunt takes on the titular role that Julie Andrews once played, while Lin-Manuel Miranda, Meryl Streep, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Colin Firth, Julie Waters and Dick Van Dyke round out the ensemble. Now, they’ll be joined by another tremendous screen presence, as Angela Lansbury enters the newest live-action Disney sequel.
Five-time Tony winner Lansbury will play the Balloon Lady, who was originally featured in P.L. Travers’ novel. While it’s presumably a minor role, it definitely won’t be Lansbury’s introduction to Disney. She previously starred in Bedknobs and Broomsticks and also gave her voice to Mrs. Potts in the original 1992 Beauty and the Beast. She won’t reprise the role in the live-action adaptation, however. Those duties now belong to Emma Thompson. Oddly enough, Thompson played Travers in Disney’s Saving Mr. Banks. The studio likes to keep people in the family, »

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. »

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.
“I kind of went into this boot camp for three months before we started shooting, which was singing four times a week, »
