Back in April, Disney and LucasFilm unveiled the second teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, during Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim. The online release of this highly-anticipated footage set a new record, with 88 million views within the first 24 hours of release. Some thought that record wouldn't fall until perhaps the first footage from Star Wars: Episode VIII was released, but today we have word that this record has fallen, by another upcoming Disney movie. Yesterday, the first teaser for Beauty and the Beast debuted, which was viewed a record 91.8 million times.
The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the live-action Beauty and the Beast footage broke the record for the most-viewed "teaser" within the first 24 hours. The 91.8 million mark bested the April teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the first teaser for Captain America: Civil War (61 million views) and Avengers: Age of Ultron (31 million). Still, another trailer record set by »
Thanks to star Emma Watson‘s massive social media following, the first teaser trailer for Disney’s live-action “Beauty and the Beast” beat “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” in its first 24 hours online. The one-minute, 30-second peek at the highly anticipated live-action remake was viewed 91.8 million times — the most views ever registered by a film teaser in a 24-hour period. The second-most viewed such clip of all time is the second teaser for “The Force Awakens” (88 million views), followed by “Captain America: Civil War” (61 million views), the first teaser for “Force Awakens” (55 million views) and, in fifth place, “Avengers: Age. »

The Force is strong with Disney, and that no longer applies solely to the "Star Wars" franchise: Its first teaser trailer for the upcoming live-action remake of "Beauty and the Beast" conjured up a whopping 91.8 million views in its first 24 hours of release, besting previous one-day pageview champ "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."
The latter film (also a Disney outing) boasted an impressive 88 million views when it debuted last year. But it was no match for the beloved musical (like "Star Wars," another nostalgia-inducing property with a sizable, devoted fan base), which first hit theaters in animated form back in 1991.
With the announcement of the live-action remake, and its starry cast led by "Harry Potter" actress Emma Watson, Disney was no doubt banking on lots of interest in the property. But it seems that that interest is even greater than the Mouse House was expecting.
The studio will no doubt »

So apparently live-action adaptations of Disney classics are the new big thing. Or at least, the House of Mouse is trying very hard to make it the new big thing. From my perspective, it seems like it hasn’t quite caught on yet, since I recall Cinderella not making a massive splash. Still, their Alice in Wonderland movie made a fair amount at the box office, so I suppose the train rolls on. The latest of Disney’s back catalogue to go three-dimensional is Beauty and the Beast, courtesy of director Bill Condon, a director with a surprisingly varied filmography. There’s Gods and Monsters, his film about the late life of Frankenstein director James Whale, and more recently Mr Holmes, which was in many respects the same film but with Ian McKellan playing an elderly Sherlock Holmes and no hunky gardener. And then there’s the time he directed one of the Candyman sequels, »

So, you’re Disney, you have a property that’s made you kajillions of dollars already, and the related toy/park merchandise sales aren’t exactly dropping off, but you think you can throw out something else that will make you tons more money… might want to jump on that one, right?
The animated Beauty and the Beast was rather a while ago in cinematic terms, and while you can put out a new edition of the Blu-Ray every couple of years, there’s nothing like getting things fresh in people’s minds again. Plus, you could get a lot of big names involved, and your test run, Into the Woods, did even better than you hoped.
Oh sure, it’s probably actually going to be a good movie, and that’s even more likely when you know that Bill Condon is directing, but there’s just got to be »

Tale as old as time.
For a story as familiar as Beauty and the Beast, this new live action version looks like it will present to us the tale as if we were seeing it for the first time. It looks, quite simply, magnificent.
This long weekend, we were treated to our first look at Emma Watson playing Belle, which has to be the most perfect casting we could have ever dreamed of. Everything about this teaser is soaked in nostalgia, from that familiar score, to the snowy castle, enchanted ballroom, and of course, the rose.

Following in the footsteps of their Cinderella remake, Disney are working on a live-action version of Beauty and the Beast, featuring Emma Watson in the lead role of Belle. It looks to draw heavily on the celebrated 1991 animated version, with Ewan McGregor as the talking candelabra Lumiere and Ian McKellen as Cogsworth the clock. Directed by Bill Condon (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Parts 1and 2), Beauty and the Beast is due for release in the Us on 17 March 2017

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.

Bill Condon was an inspired choice by Disney for the live-action version of Beauty and the Beast. After all, there are few people I know who have a more exhaustive knowledge of musicals, both onscreen and on the stage, and he takes the form seriously. He isn’t afraid to call the sacred cows out when he disagrees, and he cares deeply about how these properties are adapted to the bigscreen. When he was working on Dreamgirls, he was incredibly happy, and there’s a joy to that filmmaking as well as a knowledge of the way musicals typically do or don’t work onscreen. Disney’s committed to turning every animated film they’ve ever made into a live-action film, although I’m not sure how you define that term anymore. Is Alice Through The Looking Glass a live-action film? Is Pete’s Dragon a live-action film? Is Warcraft a live-action film? »

Due out next March 17, Disney looks to continue their run of wild success when it comes to live-action adaptations of their popular classics by sending out a new version of Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as the Beast. The first teaser has just hit, and while it doesn't give us a look at the Beast or a few of the story's other colorful and memorable characters (like Lumiere, played by Ewan McGregor, or Gaston, played by Luke Evans), we do get to glimpse Belle as well as hear a tiny bit of that classic music. Check it out. Obviously they're holding back a lot here, including looks at many of the characters. Plus, we're itching to see what the new Beast looks like and, of course, that moment when Belle and Beast are...

The first glimpse of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast reboot featuring Emma Watson has kept things pretty cryptic: there’s a spot of ancestor worship (via the Be Our Guest tagline, referencing the famous song from the 1990 cartoon), a couple of lines of dialogue (presumably from Ewan McGregor and Ian McKellen as Lumiere and Cogsworth), plus two hints of Watson herself: a nervous “Hello” and an out-of-focus shot of her leaning over a rose.
The trailer has instead very much majored on the production design, with extended scenes of (what we can safely assume) is the Beast’s deserted mansion as Belle/Beauty tentatively opens the Beast-shaped door. In its lush, candles-and-chandeliers art direction, it very much recalls last year’s Cinderella; rather interestingly, »

Disney's new teaser trailer for the live action retelling of the classic fairytale may be disappointing for some since Emma Watson makes a quick appearance as Belle. What we do get in the first Beauty And The Beast trailer is a voice over of from Beast played by Dan Stevens and another voice which may be LeFou voiced by Josh Gad. Watch the new trailer and don't blink since you may miss Emma Watson's cameo.

The clip focuses on the Beast's castle, showing where the former prince resides and where Belle meets the motley crew of anthropomorphized household items. After the door opens, two unseen characters discuss the arrival of Belle until she greets the empty home. Watson as Belle is partially seen behind a rose she reaches for.
