Disney has been recapturing the magic of the nostalgia from longtime fans to introducing the new generation of how the animated version has been so timeless. Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action re-telling of studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience. You can’t forget the mesmerizing original music that is remastered for several new songs.
What you’ll gather from the trailer itself is a dazzlingly visual that takes the audiences through a journey of love, motivation, and suspense. One thing that stood out was the rendering on Beast/Prince Adam (Dan Stevens) which many were wondering how Beast would look as Emma Watson’s Belle was uncanny to the portrayal in the animated counterpart. Other characters such as Gaston, Maurice, Lumiere, Cogsworth, and more are certainly spruced up with elaborate scenes and state of the art GI for an all-new generation capturing every moment being retold.
