Walt Disney Co (NYSE:DIS)’s Beauty and the Beast With Emma Watson Re-make Set For Next Year

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast with Emma Watson trailer is finally out and already promising everything seen in the 1991 original show but on a bigger scale. If the trailer is anything to go by, then the film studio has done more than enough in making good use of recent advancement in technology.

Disney Beauty and the Beast with Emma Watson

The live-action Beauty and the Beast show already threatens to look much better than the animation model, Disney having initiated a number of changes. However, fans will still have to wait until next spring to watch the live-action version of the show on the big screen as Disney continues to work on its catalog of classics.

The new Disney Beauty and the Beast with Emma Watson as Belle will also feature Dan Stevens as Beast. While all the previous familiar faces will make an appearance on the remake, viewers may have to contend with a computer-generated castle’s permanent resident. The Beast role played by Stevens is also computer generated.

Amidst growing concerns of whether the show will live up to expectations, director, Bill Condon insists the use of advanced technology will make it impossible for people to notice major changes.

“I was so excited to hear that Disney was thinking of doing a live-action version of Beauty and the Beast. When something is so perfect why get near it? The answer is technology has caught up to the ideas that were introduced in that movie,” said Mr. Condon.

Classics Revival Spree

While the original film was the first to be nominated for an Academy Award, it will be interesting to see if Disney’s Beauty and the Beast with Emma Watson will achieve the same feat this time around. The Film studio is aggressively bringing back to life its catalog of childhood classics as demand for live action remakes continues to grow.

The studio has already confirmed that live actions of Mulan and Dumbo are also in the pipeline.

Walt Disney was unchanged in Monday trading session slightly rallying by $0.24 to close the day at highs of $97.92 a share.
