Most of you may already know. But for those of you who haven't heard, great news! Beauty and the Beast is coming in March 2017. It was recently announced that Disney will be bringing this live adaptation to theatre's. Who will be playing Belle, Beast/Prince, Gaston you ask? We've got the details.
Emma Watson (Harry Potter) will be playing the brunette princess Belle. Dan Stevens (Downtown Abbey) is set to play the Beast/Prince. Rumor has it that Ryan Gosling was offered the role of the Beast, but turned it down. Luke Evans (Dracula Untold) will be Gaston. Emma Thompson will be Mrs. Potts and Kevin Kline will be Maurice, Belle's father. Bill Condon, who also directed The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn-Part 2 will be directing this new live-action Beauty and the Beast.
Currently in theatre's is Cinderella, where the theme is not so much portraying the damsel in distress, but having courage and being kind. Something I think we can all agree is okay to advertise. And of course, our main announcement, Beauty and the Beast. Princess movies, princess raps, can somebody please say princess boom! Makes you wonder, what princess is next in line. Princess Jasmine from Aladdin, anyone?
