Keeping their special effects characters close to the vest, Disney has released their first teaser trailer for ‘Beauty and the Beast’. With the presses still printing money for ‘Jungle Book’ there are no signs of the live action re-telling of tales to stop. Which isn’t a bad thing. Watch the trailer.
I definitely like the feel of the trailer and the background of the castle growing in disrepair. On one hand, I’m happy they have held off showing any of the characters that will require special effects but on the other I really want to see how they are going to pull off “people” like Mrs. Potts (Emma Thompson), Lumiere (Ewan McGregor), or Cogsworth (Ian McKellen). Hell I want to see if they keep Beast (Dan Stevens) the same or redesign him. On that alone I’m very interested to see more about this movie, other than my daughter will want to see this.
The movie opens March 17, 2017
