Beauty and the Beast is a live-adaptation of the animated Disney classic of the same name. In recent years Disney has made an active effort to adapt some of their most beloved titles for live action or CGI adaptations. Beauty and the Beast had a phenomenal showing at the box office which made over $1.2 Billion worldwide. Thanks to the successes The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast, this has paved the way for future adaptations such as Aladdin and The Lion King.
In the Kingdom of France, a castle hides a beastly secret. An arrogant young prince and his subjects were cursed by a witch after the prince rudely rejected her request for shelter. To break the curse the prince must find true love before the rose he was given wilts and the last petal falls. Many years have passed and hope of breaking the curse is all but lost, but when a clockmaker’s daughter takes her father’s place as a prisoner in the Prince’s castle she could be the last hope for the Prince and his subjects. The beautiful Belle must now find the sensitive soul that rests behind the fierce and beastly facade of the Prince.
