The BEAUTY AND THE BEAST 25th Anniversary edition will a Beauty and the Beast table read from the live action version!

Disney released a sneak peek bonus chip the first Beauty and the Beast table read! In it, you get to see Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey, Legion) and Emma Watson (the Harry Potter films, The Perks of Being a Wallflower) showing off their acting skills, even when not in costume.

Since it’s a table read, there’s not much else to show. Still, it’s exciting to see their chemistry unfold on just a table read. Imagine how much more so when they’re on set in full regalia.

Director Bill Condon (Dreamgirls, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn parts 1 and 2) talks about the excitement of bringing something very classic into today’s technological age.

“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.”

Included in the video is the amazing concept art that we’ve shown before. Check out the clip below!
