Disney is back with another live action version of a timeless classic. This time around it’s Beauty and the Beast, with Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as Beast/Prince Adam.
We’ve seen several versions of a live-action Beauty and the Beast over the years, ranging from Ron Perlman’s take on the character (1987-1990) to the latest version on the CW, starring Kristin Kreuk and Jay Ryan, so what will set this one apart?
Disney is at the helm and we have high hopes for the new film. How about you?

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.
