In what is decidedly not a coincidental occurrence, Disney is releasing the twenty-fifth anniversary edition of the animated Beauty and the Beast close to the new, live-action Beauty and the Beast. The Beauty and the Beast Walt Disney Signature Collection Edition comes out on Digital HD September 6th and Blu-ray September 20th and includes a “making of” featurette on the live-action version, which comes out March 17, 2017.
Today, they released a clip of the clip (confused yet?) containing a look at the round-table reading, wherein Emma Watson is her usual amazing self and Dan Stevens shows his Beastly side. Also included are some quick comparisons of the animated film’s glory and the live-action versions of the same scenes.
Who else plans on watching the two films back to back as soon as possible?
