Emma Watson And Dan Stevens Have Ridiculous Chemistry In First Beauty And The Beast Sneak Peek
It’s been months since Disney dropped its first teaser trailer for the live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast, and the wait for new information has been unbearable. But today of all days, there’s something there that wasn’t there before: a enchanting new sneak peek from Emma Watson and Dan Stevens’s first table read.
While we still don’t get to see Watson in costume as everyone’s favourite bookish Disney princess, this sneak peek does reveal the actors’ insane chemistry as Belle and Beast:
The clip also features a brief interview with director Bill Condon, spoke to the danger of trying to remake something that’s already “so perfect” like Beauty and the Beast.
“I was so excited to hear that Disney was thinking about doing a live action version of Beauty and the Beast.” he said. “When something is so perfect, why get near it? And the answer is technology has caught up to the ideas that were introduced in that movie.”
Look no further than concept art of Lumiere the candlestick (voiced by Ewan McGregor) and his bickering buddy Cogsworth the clock (voiced by Ian McKellen) to see what those technological advancements look like.
