No pun intended, but that’s a Beauty.
The shadowy romantic poster encapsulates all the magical feelings the film brings to its audiences, featuring Emma Watson in Belle’s iconic yellow gown, waltzing with her beastly prince while being surrounded by purple and blue hues that seem to sparkle in their presence.
If you’re wondering whether you’ve seen a similar poster before, you’re not wrong. This new image pays homage to the original 1991 animation poster which also showed Belle and Beast dancing. The original poster also had a tagline that reads: “The most beautiful love story ever told”.
“I can’t even think how many times I watched (Beauty and the Beast) as a child. I knew all the words by heart. I knew all the songs by heart,” Watson told Entertainment Weekly. Over the years, Belle’s relationship with the Beast has been touted one of the greatest love stories ever seen on the big screen.
“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 realise the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.
Watson is certainly living up to her reputation as a benevolent Disney princess isn’t she?
“Beauty and the Beast” will hit cinemas on 17th March 2017.
