Director Bill Condon was only interested in turning Disney's animated classic "Beauty and the Beast" into a live-action film if he could use Alan Menken's Oscar-winning score. He remembers fondly when it came out in 1991, and how it not only solidified Disney's animation renaissance after "The Little Mermaid," but also helped revitalize the movie musical at a time when the genre was basically dead.The film stars Emma Watson as Belle, Dan Stevens as the Beast, and a robust supporting cast that includes Luke Evans, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Emma Thompson and Gugu Mbatha-Raw.The trailer re-creates some familiar imagery from the animated film – like the grand ballroom and Belle's yellow gown – but Condon was not restricted solely to drawing from the original.
