Afgelopen weekend presenteerde Disney de aankomende films tijdens de D23. Een van deze films was Beauty and the Beast. Alhoewel hoofdrolspeelster Emma Watson niet lijfelijk aanwezig kon zijn, was ze wel te zien in een videoboodschap. Ze zei onder andere: “Bringing Belle to life for me has been a complete dream come true.”

Tevens werd er beeldmateriaal getoond. Hieronder enkele reacties. Op BWW message board viel te lezen: “I’m here at the expo and everything I’ve seen from BATB looks stunning, including Emma in the dress. They also showed the title treatment artwork which reminds me of Into The Woods’ mixed with the original one with the Beauty in nice type with an eroded Beast. The crowds went wild for it. The set, visuals, costumes, etc. were beautiful. No footage of the objects or the beast.

Can’t wait for everyone to see the footage we saw! Plus, we were treated to a video of Luke Evans and Josh Gad singing a few bars of “Gaston”.”

Volgens Toofab.com: “Though nearly done filming, there wasn’t any complete footage shown from this one — save for a shot of Emma Watson as Belle in her now infamous gold dress, coming down the stairs to dance with the Beast. Let us just say that she looked GORGEOUS and seeing that moment brought to life brings chills.

In some behind-the-scenes footage shown, we got a look at the village set, which looks almost exactly like it did in the animated film. Belle is seen in her blue and white dress as well, while Gaston (Luke Evans) can be seen singingand dancing around a bar in his famous red costume and long ponytail. Sorry, nothing with the Beast in it just yet.”

Emma Watson en Dan Stevens zullen te zien zijn als respectievelijk Belle en het Beest. Daarnaast speelt Luke Evans Gaston en Josh Gad Lefou. Emma Thompson speelt Mrs. Potts, Kevin Kline Belle’s vader, Maurice, Ewan McGregor als Lumiere, Ian McKellen speelt Cogsworth, Stanley Tucci zal te zien zijn als Cadenza de piano, Henry Garret als the King, Nathan Mack als Chip, en Harriet Jones als the Queen.

Achtvoudig Oscar-winnaar Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin) zal de soundtrack van de film verzorgen. De score zal naast de oude nummers nieuwe bevatten. Daarnaast wordt er nieuwe muziek geschreven tezamen met Sir Tim Rice. De film Beauty and the Beast wordt geregisseerd door Bill Condon en de film is te zien in 2017.
