The live-action ‘Beauty and the Beast‘ movie just got a release date: March 17, 2017.
So . . . we have two years. But we know it’ll all be worth the wait. I mean, Emma Watson is going to be Belle! As soon as that was announced I already knew this modern live-action retelling would be perfect.
Bill Condon will direct.
And now for some more exciting casting news: Emma Thompson (‘Harry Potter,’ Love Actually) has joined the live-action ‘Beauty and the Beast‘ cast as Mrs. Potts! So we think this is, yet again, a perfect casting.
