One of the BEST films out this year is the Beauty and The Beast LIVE ACTION remake and it’s officially out on Blu-ray! Which means endless playback on demand and what is really my favorite thing is the BONUS FEATURES! First, let’s get to what all is included.
About The Movie
Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. “Beauty and the Beast” is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within. The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar® winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Golden Globe® nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, the feather duster; six-time Tony Award® winner Audra McDonald as Madame Garderobe, the wardrobe; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.
Directed by Oscar® winner Bill Condon from a screenplay by TBD based on the 1991 animated film, the film is produced by Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman with eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken, who won two Academy Awards® (Best Original Score and Best Song) for the 1991 animated film, providing the score, which will include new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and Howard Ashman, as well as several new songs written by Menken and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice. “Beauty and the Beast” is in U.S. theaters NOW.
Now let’s get to the BONUS FEATURES!
Beauty and the Beast | The Dress
As a little girl seeing Belle walk down in her gold dress was magical so I knew when I heard about the remake that it would be an important scene in this film as well. I love that we go behind the scenes and learn about inspiration and all the dress details.
Beauty and the Beast | The Dancing
WOWZA! The dancing was so intricate and choreographed. I loved seeing the practicing and the different dance information.
Beauty and the Beast | Filming at Shepperton
Another highlight. GORGEOUS! Simply stunning!
