Disney has released a new featurette showing us how the magic is made for the live action Beauty and the Beast. Check it out below. Who thinks Disney will be able to capture the same magic as the original animated version?
Belle is a young woman who is taken prisoner by a Beast in his castle in exchange for the freedom of her father Maurice. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and she learns to look beyond the Beast’s exterior to recognize the true heart and soul of the human Prince within. Meanwhile, a hunter named Gaston is on the loose to take Belle for himself and later intends to hunt down the Beast at any cost.
