Beauty and the Beast


Walt Disney Animation Studios’ magical classic “Beauty and the Beast” returns to the big screen in Disney Digital 3D™, introducing a whole new generation to the Disney classic with stunning new 3D imagery. The film captures the fantastic journey of Belle (voice of Paige O’Hara), a bright and beautiful young woman who’s taken prisoner by a hideous beast (voice of Robby Benson) in his castle. Despite her precarious situation, Belle befriends the castle’s enchanted staff—a teapot, a candelabra and a mantel clock, among others—and ultimately learns to see beneath the Beast’s exterior to discover the heart and soul of a prince.

Disney's Live Action ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Lands Director Bill Condon

Following this weekend's box office success of Disney's Maleficent, the studio is moving forward with a live-action adaptation of the 1991 animated classic Beauty and the Beast, which has Bill Condon attached to direct.

Evan Spiliotopoulos (Ouija, Hercules) is writing the screenplay, although no specific story details were given at this time. The original Beauty and the Beast was one of the few animated movies to receive an Oscar nomination for Best Picture, grossing over $375 million worldwide and spawning a hit Broadway play and other adaptations such as The CW series Beauty & the Beast and a French Beauty & the Beast adaptation starring Vincent Cassel and Léa Seydoux. The characters will also be featured in the upcoming Disney Channel TV movie Descendants.
