!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GUYSGUYSGUYS!!!!

You know how Disney is making a live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast that's coming out in 2017?

Guess who's playing the Beast/Adam.




You're welcome;)

I found out that Dan Stevens would be playing Beast/Adam here.

I'm still a little skeptical about this whole remake (because, seriously?!  Taking on the animated BATB is gonna be tough…), but the cast, so far, looks promising.  It includes Emma Watson as Belle, and even though I haven't technically seen her play in anything, I think that with the right hair/costume, she could do very nicely as Belle:)  Also, Emma Thompson is playing Mrs. Potts…it just looks like a good cast, okay?

What are your thoughts?

  2. I cannot see Emma Watson as Belle....that is just weird for me. I don't know why? I just can't see it.

    1. I understand--like I said, I have to picture her with the right hair and costume...and be careful to not confuse her with Kristin Stewart, ha. I'm open to seeing their take on it, but...they're gonna have to tread pretty darn carefully;)

      I can't wait to hear everybody's singing voice...I wonder if they'll do the song "If I Can't Love Her" from the musical? If they do...*dreamy girly sigh*

  5. I can hardly even believe this is real, the casting is so perfect! I can't decide if I'm more excited about Dan Stevens or Luke Evans... or that they both going to be singing! I want to see this movie right now.

    Lovely blog by the way! :)

  6. I actually wanted Lee Pace as Beast but Disney didn't listen to me! ;) I can't really see Dan Stevens as Beast. I can totally see him as Adam but not really as Beast. But I am SOOOO excited the Luke Evans is in it even though he plays the bad guy!!!

    1. He would have been amazing as Beast!!! 0.0 Now I'm actually more excited by that idea than by Dan Stevens as Beast…ah, well. We still get to see a different side to Luke Evans, at least:D

  7. ooooh that sounds so cool!! I can't wait to see it, but 2017 is so far away!!! Agghhh!!

  8. This actually made me angry at first because I still haven't forgiven Dan Stevens for leaving Downton Abbey in such a dreadful way. And honestly, I cannot picture him as the Beast. Nope. Sorry. Or maybe he's just forever and always fixed in my mind as Matthew Crawley.
    Emma Watson, on the other hand, will be a great Belle. I can definitely picture that. But I was somewhat annoyed when I first learned she had been cast because she doesn't have any singing experience. And neither does Dan Stevens, right? The singing is the only thing I'm concerned about. I'm so hoping that I will be pleasantly surprised.
    I've heard great things about the new Cinderella, but Beauty and the Beast is a totally different animal. Let's hope they can make this remake just as delightful.

    1. Haha, yup, we stopped watching Downton Abbey when we learned that he dies in that finale...;)
      Yes, that's the thing. I guess with any remake of a classic, you take a big risk, so...fingers crossed! I know Emma Thompson has a lovely voice, so here's to seeing how the others sing:)

    2. I don't think I've ever heard Emma Thompson sing, but she's basically perfect at everything else, so I assume she will be good. ;)

    4. Haha, I love that response! "But she's basically perfect at everything else..." XD
      I've heard her sing in the Disney movie "Brave," where she was singing a Celtic tune, and OH MY GOODNESS. So. Beautiful. It's stunning:)
