Disney’s new version of the Beauty and the Beast arrives in theaters on March 2017, and we have already the first audio clip of Emma Watson, who gives life to Belle, singing the movie’s classic “something there.”
The new clip has 33 seconds and doesn’t have a video. It was released on the official social media of the film. The new version of the Beauty and the Beast will feature the classic song of the first movie, including “something else,” of course.
The magic of Disney comes back to life
For all those who grew up with Disney’s fairytales, nothing is better than watching our beloved characters come to life one more time. 2015 was the year for Cinderella and 2017 will be the year for the Beauty and the Beast. The movie is expected to hit theaters on March 17, 2017.
As Disney described it, the movie is a re-telling of the 1991 animated version, adapted for a contemporary audience. It was directed by Bill Condon, who was the director of the two last Twilight movies. Belle is played by Harry Potter star, Emma Watson, while Dan Stevens will bring Beast to life.
There are other recognized stars in the movie such as Luke Evans who plays Gaston, Josh Gad who portrays LeFou, and Kevin Kline as Belle’s father, Maurice. Ewan Mcgregor will be behind Lumiere, Ian Mckellan as Cogsworth and Emma Thompson as Mrs. Pott. These last characters will be Computer generated versions.
Disney announced that the movie will stay true to its original music, while some new songs will be added. The recently released clip let us listen to a short version of Watson singing classic song “something there,” with a beautiful image of Belle.
This is not the first live-action film of a Disney Classic. The company has released other live-action versions of Maleficent, Cinderella, Tarzan, and The Jungle Book in recent years. As well, Disney is bringing back the stories of Snow White, Mulan, Aladdin, and the Lion King. The second part of the Jungle Book is also in production.
Beauty and the Beast’s Enchanting Melodies Belle Doll
But if the movie is not enough for fans, Hasbro made a doll of Belle, which will be available in stores and online retailers in January 2017. The doll is inspired by Emma Watson’s Belle version wearing the iconic yellow gown and removable shoes. Watson helped costume designer Jacqueline Durran recreate the look of Bella testing a lot of yellows for the big screen.
“For Emma, it was important that the dress was light and that it had a lot of movement. In Emma’s reinterpretation, Belle is an active princess,” Durran said. “She did not want a dress that was corseted or that would impede her in any way.”
Moreover, you can press Bella Doll’s stomach to hear Watson singing “Something There.” The doll can be purchased for $19.99, and it requires A76 batteries which are included.
For $49.99 you can get the Beauty and the Beast Deluxe Duo 2-Pack which included Belle and Beast dolls inspired in the ballroom attired wore at the film. The “Castle Friends Collection” set costs $14.99 and features five of the most memorable characters from the live-action musical: Chip, Cogsworth, Lumiére, Plumette and Mrs. Potts.
