Dan has confirmed the news on his official twitter account. He tweeted about his "Beast Mode". See his tweet below.
Emma Watson will be playing Belle who is the Beauty in the title. Luke Evans will probably play the villain Gaston according to the Hollywood Reporter. It looks like this will be a British movie as Bill Condon will be directing the movie and David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman will be producing it.
So we can clearly see that Disney has been doing this for quite some time now. They have been taking their animated classics and they have been turning them into movies. We can take the example of the Cinderella movie which will be released on March 13th and this movie will also have British lead characters. The movie is already getting great reviews.
Other Disney movies like Maleficent and Sleeping Beauty made them $758.4 million. Beauty and the Beast is a story of a woman who takes her father’s place as a prisoner. She is taken to a monstrous being’s castle where she falls in love with a creature. That creature later turns out to be a prince.
Emma Watson is really happy to play the role of Belle. She said that the movie was a big part of her growing up. She said in her Facebook post that it felt surreal that she was going to dance to Be Our Guest and sing Something There. She also said that she will be taking some singing lessons.
