BEHOLD, interwebbers! Gaze upon the new teaser poster for Disney’s live-action “re-fashioning” of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. When I see this thing of beauty, it’s like an extra electric jolt to my heart.
March 2017 can NOT get here fast enough! The Bill Condon-directed film re-contetualizes the animated classic and stars Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Kevin Kline, Josh Gad, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Audra McDonald, Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson.
We hope another trailer isn’t too far behind, though with the release date being set so far off into the future, my guess is that we may have to wait on pins and needles for a second teaser to come along and break the internet. The first shattered records, usurping STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS and CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR as the most watched teaser in the span of 24 hours.
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST opens on March 17, 2017. Can it be sooner if we ask nicely?!
