- Behind the Scenes of “Beauty and the Beast” and Interview with Emma Watson
- A few days ago, behind the scenes videos for "Beauty and the Beast" were delivered by FilmIsNow Movie Bloopers & Extras.
The video is including the interview with Emma Watson, Dan Stevens and Luke Evans.
"Beauty and the Beast" was directed by Bill Condon, who directed the musical film "Dreamgirls" and wrote "Chicago".
In 1991, an original version "Beauty and the Beast" was released as animated film by Walt Disney Pictures. It is based on the French fairy tale of the same name by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont,
This time, the film consists of a live-action and animation with CGI. Disney initially approached to remake the film in a more radical way almost akin to Universal Pictures' "Snow White and the Huntsman".
Bill Condon said about this approach;
"After Frozen opened, the studio saw that there was this big international audience for an old-school-musical approach. But initially they said, 'We're interested in a musical to a degree, but only half full of songs.' My interest was taking that film and doing it in this new medium — live action — as a full-on musical movie. So I backed out for a minute, and they came back and said, 'No, no, no, we get it, let's pursue it that way."
Principal photography on the film began at Shepperton Studios in Surrey, England, on May 18, 2015.
The film is set to be released in the United States on March 17, 2017.
