Emma Watson is further proving that she is perfect for the role of Belle in the live-action remake of the 1991 Disney animated film. From the costume, to her sweet voice, Watson is a spitting image of the animated Belle - minus the whole animated part - and the nostalgia is off the charts!
This live-action adaption from the 1991 Disney animated film follows the same story-line, has the same iconic music, and brings our favourite characters to life, but we bet there will »

Disney has released the first full clip from the upcoming live action version of Beauty and the Beast. If this clip is anything close to what the full film will be, we are in for a treat.
Disney has been picking up major steam by bringing their classic animated films to life. They had a slow start with Maleficent, but sense then they have hit paydirt with Cinderella and The Jungle Book. Now we are getting the first ever animated picture to be nominated for an Oscar, Beauty and the Beast. Everything about it looks amazing, and it is tracking to have a huge opening.
Now we have been given our first full clip from the film. In the clip, we see Belle, Played by Emma Watson, giving us a little bit of the classic song entitled "Belle". The clip is pretty much the animated sequence brought to life shot by shot almost. »

As Belle runs her morning errands, the townspeople comment her “strange” and “funny” behavior; she’s clearly an outsider in her own home.

While faithful to the animated version, the new “Beauty and the Beast” is not an exact shot-by-shot remake.
Belle is still clad in blue and white, but gone is the hand basket from the 1991 version.
The lyrics are changed slightly as well.

In the live action remake of Beauty And The Beast, Belle’s reading material has gotten an upgrade. Instead of reading a story “about a beanstalk and an ogre” she’s hitting the Shakespeare, telling one of the townspeople she’s returning a book about “two lovers in fair Verona.” We’d expect nothing less from feminist book club-starter Emma Watson. We learn this in the new clip Disney has released of “Belle,” the unforgettable Howard Ashman-Alan Menken number that kicks off the action. Like the trailers, the footage once again showcases Watson’s passable singing voice, and Bill Condon’s visuals. This “poor provincial town” has a strong fashion sense.
It also indicates that the new film isn’t doggedly recreating the original. Belle’s banter has changed, which in turn has altered the pace of the song. Watson also gives her Belle a purposeful stride, making »

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 »

It was the worst President’s Day weekend at the North America box office in four years as three new features – The Great Wall, Fist Fight and A Cure for Wellness- all misfired. Instead, ticket buyers spent their money on holdovers The Batman Lego Movie, Fifty Shades Darker and John Wick: Chapter Two.
Ticket sales were down a steep 40% from last year at this time when Deadpool earned $56 million in its second weekend. The box office should come back to life the week after next when Logan kicks off a March filled with the likes of Beauty and the Beast and Kong: Skull Island.
Figures reported in this article are based on four-day weekend estimates.
The Lego Batman Movie earned an estimated $42.5 million from 4,088 screens over the holiday frame, which helped push the film’s domestic total to $107 million. With the family market pretty much to itself for the next few weeks, »
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.

Lindsay Lohan has been using Instagram of late to highlight her visit with Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and tout a trip to the United Nations. She’s also employing the platform to not-so-subtly hint that Disney should cast her in the studio’s live action remake of The Little Mermaid. Needless to say, perusing her account these days is a bit surreal. Lohan—who, remember, also has a treatment for a Mean Girls sequel in her back pocket—posted a split-screen comparing herself to Ariel.
Though now the image is simply adorned with the hashtag ”#thelittlemermaid,” Entertainment Weekly reports that Lohan initially had composed a longer caption in which she said she would take on the role if Bill Condon—who is behind the upcoming Beauty And The Beast—were to sign on as director. “I will sing again, as #ariel #thelittlemermaid [if] @Disney approve that #billcondon ...

Over the weekend, Disney made a couple of important cast announcements for both of their hotly anticipated offerings, The Lion King and Mary Poppins. Disney had already created a buzz with the announcement of these two remakes which has now skyrocketed for these re-imagined childhood favourites. The stakes are high for Disney, so only the best acting talents will do.
In the case you have been living under a rock of late, The Jungle Book director Jon Favreau will be taking the helm of the all new live-action reimaging from Disney, The Lion King. After the huge success of The Oscar-nominated The Jungle Book last year which saw critics and audiences salivating over the Favreau’s visually stunning production it was a complete no-brainer that he should be leading the pack.

Everyone loves a good comeback story (exhibit A: that crazy Super Bowl game) so it doesn’t really come as a surprise that once upon a time Hollywood darling Lindsay Lohan is presenting options that would insert her presence back into the limelight.
Outside of writing the script for a potential Mean Girls sequel, Lindsay Lohan is now taking to Instagram sharing a side-by-side comparison of her (now a redhead) and The Little Mermaid‘s Ariel (reportedly, the caption for the post at one point also suggested that Beauty and the Beast director Bill Condon should be the one to lead the project)…
Lindsay Lohan of course has suffered dramatically from various drug addictions in the past and does not really have much of a film career at the moment, but it’s always possible that Hollywood gives her a chance at redemption.

Back in August, Disney revealed that the studio is teaming up with Lin-Manuel Miranda and Alan Menken, who are set to write new music for the studio's The Little Mermaid remake. We haven't heard any more on the remake since then, including who will be cast, or who will serve as writer or director on this coveted project. Today we have word that actress Lindsay Lohan may be throwing her hat in the ring for the Ariel role, after a new post on Instagram this weekend.
While Lindsay Lohan doesn't specifically state that she wants the Ariel role, she posted a side-by-side picture of herself with red hair, and the redhaired animated version of Ariel. She didn't state anything else on Instagram, only using the hashtag #TheLittleMermaid. It isn't known if the script is even ready or if the studio is ready to start the auditioning process, but we don't »
“The Great Wall” (Universal) fared best among the three new original debuts this week. But at $18 million, it fell short of what was needed to boost this very expensive Chinese production aimed at international markets (while making American audiences see it as nothing out of the ordinary).
Even so, it did better than the disappointing Ice Cube comedy “Fist Fight” (Warner Bros.) or Gore Verbinski’s disastrous “A Cure for Wellness” (20th Century Fox), which barely made the Top 10. But any heft came from decent holdovers from last weekend’s unprecedented trio of $30 million+ openers.
That’s the good news. The bad is this is a Top Ten that compares miserably with 2016, and represents a further decline in year-to-date totals. Even if they aren’t in actual free fall, they’re showing serious weakness.
The Top Ten
