Today, they introduce their first openly gay character in the remake of Beauty and the Beast. The one who steals the show is Josh Gad, as Gaston's goofy, but lovable sidekick LeFou. Little does Belle know that the only way the curse can be broken is for the Beast to fall in love and have that love returned to him. The star of the film talks about bringing more of an inventor background to the library-loving character.
Disney made it clear that they consider removal of the scene to be unacceptable and have announced that they will not be showing a cut version in Malaysia, meaning that the release of the movie in the country has been indefinitely postponed.
And you can't actually blame Belle being more attracted to the Beast than the Prince, because the live-action adaptation definitely stayed true to how disappointing the reveal of his human form was (the Beast is just better-looking, sorry Dan Stevens). But I also think the goal of this experiment was to test how ads could work on Google Home.
Corden played the role of Belle, who is portrayed by Emma Watson in the movie.
Take a look at what the fantastic remake of Disney's beloved classic Beauty and the Beast offers. The costumes and set design are stunning, and the Beast (Dan Stevens of Downton Abbey fame) special effects are really quite something.
With the help of his eccentric household servants, Lumiere (Ewan McGregor), Cogsworth (Ian McKellen), Mrs. Potts (Emma Thompson), Plumette (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), and others, Beast begins to entertain the fact that Belle may be the one who will free him of his curse.
If you see the film on an IMAX screen, it has been specially formatted to give you the entire film, as it is specially formatted in 1.9:1 ratio.
"Someone once said to Walt Disney that you make movies for kids, and he said, 'No I don't". Despite this, they still manage to bring a distinct personality to each of their characters and get us to care for them and not just because they are a walking, talking version of nostalgia.
For the most part, excellent. And Evans looks like he's having a blast playing Gaston.
What was the first musical you saw that inspired you to want to be a performer yourself? (This is alluded to in the lyric "Ev'ry morning just the same / since the morning that we came / to this poor provincial town.") It also gets rid of the Beast's 21st birthday as the deadline, and simply attaches it to the magic rose. And while I wasn't a full-on Disney Princess devotee, I did love Belle.
The six-time Tony victor is looking past all that; the role is a big one for her. Truth be told, I think you're going to find that you'll be more than happy to be Disney's guest and you may even find yourself paying it more than one visit.
