Walt Disney Pictures has announced the premiere of the movie "Beauty and the Beast", which will be based on the popular fairy tale. According to the official press release, the picture will be presented to viewers on March 17, 2017.
Recall that the main role will be played by Emma Watson, and the role of the Beast went to Dan Stevens. The movie adaptation will also star Luke Evans (the hunter Gaston), Emma Thompson (Miss Potts), Kevin Kline (Belle's father). The soundtrack will be created by Alan Mencken, who wrote the music for the famous 1991 cartoon. Bill Condon has been appointed director.
Note that earlier Emma Watson was supposed to play Belle in another movie adaptation of the fairy tale "Beauty and the Beast", which was going to be dealt with by Warner Bros. This project was put on hold after director Guillermo Del Toro left, citing a scheduling conflict.
The new "Beauty and the Beasts" will be another attempt by Walt Disney Studios to draw the audience's attention to classic fairy tales. So, in 2014, the movie "Maleficent" was released, which became a new reading of the fairy tale "Sleeping Beauty", and in March 2015, the movie "Cinderella" was premiered, which earned $ 70 million on its first weekend in North America.
