Disney’s live-action remake of “Beauty and the Beast” hits theatres on March 17. The new cast has been wowing everyone on red carpet premieres, but how do their on-screen looks stack up to the original animated characters?
Make sure to read our full review of the movie and the changes made (for better or worse), but for now let’s look at how the characters physically compare to the original animated feature.
Emma Watson stars as Belle. While her outfits differ slightly from the original designs, we think Disney nailed Belle's overall look and especially her hairstyles.
Dan Stevens plays the cursed prince. His blue eyes match, but Disney put more of an 18th century France twist on his aesthetic.
Dan Stevens also voices the Beast, who was rendered for the new movie using CGI and other visual effects.
Belle's father, Maurice, is played by Kevin Kline. He appears slightly younger and less portly than the animated character.
Even the village's triplets who swoon over Gaston got an upgrade from Disney. They're now brunette, and appear to be less cartoonishly sexualized.
In the Beast's enchanted castle, Lumiere and Cogsworth are the best dynamic duo. The remake went with a more realistic candlestick and clock.
Mrs. Potts is portrayed by Emma Thompson. Disney hasn't released a look at the human-version of Chip yet, but we're sure he'll be adorable.
Plumette the feather duster was drastically changed for the live-action movie. Instead of a standard duster, she now has an ornate bird-shaped handle (and she flies!).
