New ‘Beauty and the Beast’s poster features cast

By AI Creative Media

Walt Disney Studios on Wednesday released a new poster for its live-action retelling of Beauty and the Beast and its pure magic. The triptych image features many of the characters that we have not seen before, until today.

The poster shows human characters in the background such as Lumière (Ewan McGregor), Cogsworth (Ian McKellen), Candenza (Stanley Tucci), Plumette (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), and Mrs. Potts (Emma Thompson). At the center of them all is the Beast waltzing with Emma Watson’s Belle.

Disney’s original 1991 animated film made $424M at the global boxoffice. With anticipation running high (the trailer broke records for most views in 24 hours), Oscar winner Bill Condon’s live-action version should have no trouble outgrossing the animated classic.

Beauty and the Beast will be released in theaters on March 17.
