Disney is staying faithful to the classic 1991 Beauty and the Beast with their live-action remake. Want proof? Just check out this side-by-side, shot-for-shot “trailer”.
An old vs new comparison, featuring footage from the original animation alongside impressively similar clips from the trailer for 2017’s Beauty and the Beast, has been skilfully compiled and it makes for interesting viewing.
With Emma Watson as Belle, the new movie will be far from identical to the beloved Disney classic – the heroine’s back story has been changed, for example. But the visual parallels indicate that there will be plenty to please the nostalgic viewer.
Earlier this week, the trailer for the live-action remake broke the record for the most-viewed trailer in a 24-hour period.
