I think it’s safe to say that Disney’s ‘Beauty and the Beast‘ will feature countless more premieres in major cities across the globe ahead of its official release later this month on March 17. The upcoming $160-million musical, which directer by “Twilight” series director Bill Condon, stars an ensemble cast featuring Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Kevin Kline, Josh Gad, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Audra McDonald, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson.
Here’s more about the story:
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.
