Walt Disney Studios has unveiled the first look at the movie poster for the upcoming live action adaptation of the classic tale of “Beauty and the Beast.”
The poster is beautifully evocative of the original Disney animated classic but also forges a new path with Beast’s distinctive look. The motion that is captured with Belle’s flowing dress as they dance is quite wonderful as well.
The new film is directed by Bill Condon and stars Emma Watson with an ensemble cast including Luke Evans, Kevin Kline, Josh Gad, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Audra McDonald, Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson. “Beauty and the Beast” will be released in U.S. theaters nationwide on March 17, 2017.
