The new film will be a remake of the 1991 animated Disney classic, not a re-imagining. It is about "a young woman who takes her father’s place as a prisoner in a monstrous being’s castle, only to tall in love with the creature, who turns out to be a prince."

Beauty and the Beast will be directed by Bill Condon (“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn”), from a script written by Stephen Chbosky. It has an official release date of March 17, 2017.
