See the First Photos of Emma Watson and Dan Stevens Dancing as ‘Beauty and the Beast’
We’ve only seen brief glimpses of Emma Watson’s Belle in Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast following some leaked photos. But now we’re getting the first look at her dressed up in the classic yellow gown alongside the Beast.
In this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly, Watson’s Belle and Dan Stevens in full beast form pose on the cover mid-dance. The shot does a great job of capturing the essence of the classic Disney film, from the costume design to the intricate designs of the Beast’s castle to the look of fear on Watson’s face. And while I’m not totally sold on the CGI Beast – is Dan Stevens even in there?! – it’s hard to judge from a profile shot. At least he doesn’t look like a giant cat, like Vincent Cassel’s version.
The magazine also unveiled eight new photos from the movie, including another shot of Watson posing in her yellow gown:
The rest of the photos, which you can see over at EW, include a look at Kevin Kline‘s Maurice, Luke Evans’ Gaston, Josh Gad’s Le Fou, Ian McKellan’s Cogsworth, Ewan McGregor’s Lumiere, Emma Thompson’s Mrs. Potts, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw’s Plumette.
We’d previously seen the first look of Stevens’ golden-haired Prince, and the first teaser trailer, but no full trailer yet.. The film, directed by Bill Condon (Dreamgirls), also stars Stanley Tucci as Cadenza and Audra McDonald as Garderobe. Beauty and the Beast hits theaters March 17, 2017.
