Disney’s live action interpretation of Beauty and the Beast will hit next year, but later this month the original animated film will be celebrating its 25th anniversary. A 25th anniversary re-release of the original film will pack numerous bonus features, including a sneak peek at the upcoming live action adaptation, which can be seen below.
The sneak peek includes portions of a table read featuring dialogue between Dan Stevens, who is voicing Beast, and Emma Watson, who is playing Belle.
The 25th anniversary edition of the original Beauty and the Beast will be available digitally on September 6th, and on Blu-Ray September 20th.
Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action adaptation of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. “Beauty and the Beast” is the fantastic journey of 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.
The live action adaptation will hit theaters March 17th, 2017.
