“What if she is the one?”
The trailer for the live-action adaptation of Disney‘s animated classic “Beauty and the Beast” was released yesterday (Monday, 23rd May), causing fans (of both the movie and Emma Watson) to go into a frenzy.
Fans only had a teasing glimpse of Watson as Belle but are already wanting more. While the teaser did not introduce any other characters, it gave us a first look of the magical and majestic castle of the Beast, and we guarantee that you’ll love it.
The upcoming “Beauty and the Beast” movie aims to make the original characters more relatable to the contemporary audience. To help preserve the movie viewing experience, the original music will be retained, with the addition of several new songs in a bid to update the music scores.
However, the story will remain the same. It will relate the 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 appearance and realise the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.
Kevin Kline will act as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s diminutive and bumbling sidekick; Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the kind but rebellious candelabra; Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the head butler/mantel clock; and Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, the castle’s head of kitchen/teapot.
Other supporting characters include Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, a neurotic maestro who was turned into a harpischord; Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, the castle maid/feather duster; and Audra McDonald as Madame Garderobe, the lady-in-waiting/wardrobe.
