Over the past few years, Disney has been transforming their classic animated movies into live-action films, and there are plans to keep the ball rolling.
From the release of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ back in 2010, to the widely successful ‘The Jungle Book,’ Disney fans young and old have been receiving yearly nostalgia treats.
The next remake is the classic Disney Renaissance-era movie, ‘Beauty and The Beast’, the first animated movie to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture.
The cast of the new ‘Beauty and the Beast’ movie includes Emma Watson as Belle, Dan Stevens as the Beast, Luke Evans as Gaston, Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, Ian McKellan as Cogswoth, and Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts.
In the newly released trailer, the breathtaking scenery of the movie is highlighted. In the tantalizingly short two minutes of footage, the visuals give the viewers a realistic and grounded introduction to the setting, and a sense of magic flows seamlessly through each moment.
Alan Menken’s original score sweeps beautifully throughout the trailer, and with it comes added nostalgia for fans of the classic (I’m still crying. I’m crying as I type this. I’m crying as you read this).
The classic’s familiar musical motif trickles at the beginning of the trailer, and if that isn’t enough to get your heart stuttering, then the CGI for the Beast has to be.
Disney has green-lit over a dozen remakes for a wide score of its classics, and the movies will be coming out steadily over the coming years. Whether you’re gung-ho for the remake craze, or shaking with disapproval and laments of “no originality”, ‘Beauty and the Beast’ is bound to find its way into your heart.
If the trailer is a true reflection of the movie, this remake is shaping up to be one of Disney’s most successful yet and will surely breathe strong new life into one of Disney’s greatest animated classics.
‘Beauty and the Beast’ will premiere on March 17, 2017.
