Disney invite us to be their guest for their new live action adaptation…
After a brief tease earlier in the year we finally get the first full length trailer for Disney’s latest live action remake, Beauty & the Beast. So what do we get here? We get a good look at most of the key players – Emma Watson as Belle and Luke Evans as Gaston look almost exactly as you’d want them to look and their costumes are amazing. The sets also look very good and the designs for characters like Lumiere and Cogsworth are pretty fantastic. I’m reserving judgement on the Beast’s design until I see more of him.
My only concern is that this seems to be a straight remake of the animated classic which is a bit of a surprise as all of the other remakes so far have brought something new, be it a twist on the original or a more fully fleshed out story. I’ll definitely be seeing this but, with the animated version being one of my all time favourites, it’s got a lot to live up to for me. What do you guys think?
