EW have exclusivly revealed our first real look at the characters and sets from the up-coming adaption of Beauty and the Beast. In these revealing images we get a much more in-depth look at Emma Watson as Belle, showing off a range of outfits we all a very familiar with from the classic Disney animated movie.
We also get a glimpse of some of the servants in their non-human forms, and it’s clear to see that the style and tone they want to go with in this movie is realistic. Cogsworth and Lumiere look reconisble but also distinctly different from what we have known previously, but it works.
Bill Condon is directing and has recently been known for his work on the Breaking Dawn installments in the Twilight series. He has also worked with Sir Ian McKellen before, when in 2015 the two of them worked on the charming Mr. Holmes. Condon also directed the Candyman sequel Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh, so he is more than capable handling some of the darker aspects that the film may have.
