Following in the footsteps of their Cinderella remake, Disney are working on a live-action version of Beauty and the Beast, featuring Emma Watson in the lead role of Belle. It looks to draw heavily on the celebrated 1991 animated version, with Ewan McGregor as the talking candelabra Lumiere and Ian McKellen as Cogsworth the clock. Directed by Bill Condon (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Parts 1and 2), Beauty and the Beast is due for release in the US on 17 March 2017
