We’re less than two weeks away from the release of Disney’s new live-action reimagining of “Beauty and the Beast” into theaters, and that means it’s time for an even bigger ramp-up of the movie’s promotional campaign.
Yesterday the “Beauty and the Beast” cast and creative team gathered together in Beverly Hills, California for Disney’s global press conference, which included a live performance by composer/songwriter Alan Menken. Stars Emma Watson (Belle), Josh Gad (LeFou), Luke Evans (Gaston), Dan Stevens (Beast), Audra McDonald (Garderobe), and Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Plumette) were also on hand with director Bill Condon to discuss what it was like putting together the movie.
