Sunday was a great day for those of us who are eagerly awaiting Disney’s live-action version of Beauty and the Beast.
We got a fantastic new poster that focuses on the human actors rather than the inanimate objects we are so used to seeing. Of course, these beautiful actors are only human about .05% of the movie.
So, in essence, if you’ve not seen the classic Beauty and the Beast, this entire poster is a spoiler. There’s no doubt that it’s gorgeous. Watson is is stunning in profile. I’m still not sold on the design for the Beast. There is no doubt that Dan Stevens (oddly, still in his non-human form here) will kill it as the character. He has the voice. That dark, subtly sexy growl that’ll make the adult ladies going to see the film swoon. Or, maybe that’s just me.
The only issue I see here is Ewan McGregor. He’s gorgeous any way you slice it, but this white wig with brown porno stache just doesn’t work for me. Disney, please fix this. You have two months before the release. Do something about this. McGregor is a handsome man with a great singing voice to boot. This? This is killing me.
You can peep the poster below (and form your own opinions about the poor choice of mustache).
The powers that be at Disney also released a new teaser for us during last night’s airing of the Golden Globes. I won’t lie, I teared up when I watched his.
Clocking in at about thirty seconds long, the new teaser doesn’t offer up much in the way of new footage. Save for a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it look at the sure to be spectacular “Be Our Guest” number in the film. It’s still upping all my expectations. I even teared up a bit while watching it.
While I’m still not completely sold on Watson’s singing voice, hearing her sing “Belle” definitely made my heart grow two sizes too big.
Check out the teaser below. Be sure to catch the film when it’s released in March. It’s sure to be fantastical and wonderful.
