Disney has released twelve new character posters for Bill Condon’s upcoming Beauty and the Beast film. We get a new look at Emma Watson’s Belle, Dan Stevens’ Prince/Beast, Kevin Kline’s Maurice, Josh Gad’s Lefou, Ewan McGregor’s Lumiere, Stanley Tucci’s Maestro Cadenza, Ian McKellen’s Cogsworth, Gugu Mbatha-raw’s Plumette, Luke Evans’ Gaston, Emma Thompson’s Mrs. Potts and Josh Gad’s Lefou.
The live-action pic centers on Belle, a “bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within”. Beauty and the Beast opens in theatres March 17, 2017. [Updated with a new theatrical poster]
