It’s no secret that Luke Evans’ turn as Gaston in this year’s Beauty and the Beast was one of the film’s highlights. Unfortunately, the story dictates he must die a horrible death because he’s such an evil asshole. Turns out though, the team behind the film considered an intriguing alternative.
Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter is known for many fabulous talents, but acting isn’t exactly one of them. Nevertheless, that didn’t stop director Bill Condon from trying to cast the cultural icon in his live-action Beauty and the Beast film. Spoiler: Beyoncé said no.
With everything from Avengers: Infinity War and The Last Jedi footage to news about massive Disney theme park expansions, last weekend’s D23 Expo basically had it all. But there so many trailers, announcements, and reveals, it was hard to keep up with all the House of Mouse’s latest developments. Lucky for you, we’ve…
There’s a lot of unfortunate, understated horror in the curse put upon the household staff in Beauty and the Beast, dooming them to live out part of their lives not as humans, but everyday objects. But please, save your pity not for Chip, or Lumiere, or Cogsworth—save it for the poor guy who got turned into the toilet.
The live-action Beauty and the Beast movie has made over $1-billion, meaning a sequel is probably a near-guarantee. Disney probably won’t use their direct-to-video animated movie sequels (e.g. Enchanted Christmas or Magical World) as templates. Luckily, Emma Watson has a sequel idea of her own— unfortunately, it…
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's roundup of the sweet toys and merchandise we’ve seen this week. We’ve got a magical Doctor Strange figure, a rather large Homecoming Spider-Man, and a miserable way to treat your favorite astromech unit. Also: Legend of Zelda Clue. No, really!
Beauty and the Beast is officially a box office hit, and so the Disney live-action remake machine will continue to clank merrily along, churning out entertaining movies billed as “reimagining” beloved stories that nevertheless stick close to the company’s own existing animated properties.
The original Beauty and the Beast never really explored Gaston and LeFou’s joint backstory. They were best buddies, and that was all you really needed to know. While the live-action remake dove a little more into their past, there’s still a lot to explore. As io9 has pointed out, we need a Gaston prequel in our lives.…
This week we’ve heard that Disney will be looking at “spinoff and prequel” ideas for the live-action Beauty and the Beast movie that has just come out. But they don’t need to look at other options, because there is one obvious and perfect choice: A movie about Gaston.
Google Home might not be the most popular voice assistant to offer convenient information in exchange for reams of personal data, but it appears to be the first to serve ads directly into users’ living rooms.
Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast isn’t bad. How could it be? It’s basically a remake of one of the greatest animated movies of all time. It’s when it tries to be different that it stumbles, and those problems drag down the good parts where it gets hard to overlook its flaws, making you wonder if you should…
The biggest achievement attained by Disney’s 1991 film Beauty and the Beast is being the first animated film ever nominated for a Best Picture Oscar. Sure, Disney movies from that era like The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and The Lion King. remain classics decades later, but Beauty and the Beast stands alone. But years…
In the original Beauty and the Beast, the reason everyone loves Gaston is basically because he’s “hot.” (I put that in quotes because a real-life person with those proportions would be TERRIFYING.) But Luke Evans says there’s more to the good-looking villain in the new live-action adaptation than what was on screen in…
Get ready for your collective nostalgia monocles to pop, because the soundtrack for the new Beauty and the Beast is finally here.
Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast opens March 17 and to celebrate they’re having a full-fledged gallery art show complete with original works, prints, and more. It’s called Be Our Guest: An Art Tribute to Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and, as you can see below, the pieces are utterly gorgeous.
The Henagar Drive-In Theatre in Alabama is under new management. And that management is not happy that the old owners had scheduled Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast as one of the movies they will be showing. Especially now that we know Beauty and the Beast will have a gay character for the first time.
Aside from trailers, the glimpses we’ve gotten of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast remake so far have focused mostly on the music. In this clip released today, the Beast invites Belle to dinner as his servants—who are just as eager as he is to return to their human forms—offer him some much-needed encouragement.
There’s always been a noticeable lack of unambiguously gay characters in Disney movies, even as the company has moved towards greater diversity in its famous princess characters. That lack is the reason for things like “Give Elsa a Girlfriend.” So, finally, Disney will have a gay character in Josh Gad’s LeFou.
Of all the things we’ve seen from this film, it has been a constant frustration to me, personally, that we hadn’t yet been treated to what I was certain would be the highlight of this film: Josh Gad, as LeFou, singing “Gaston.” And now it’s finally here.
On the one hand, there are some things that look pretty great. On the other hand, how often do regular people wear capes these days? I mean, people who aren’t Veronica Lodge on Riverdale, obviously.
