A tale as old as time will be coming to a theater near you with a new look. Disney’s ‘Beauty and the Beast’will be adapted into a live-action movie. Click to read more!

Less than a week after Maleficent opened in theaters on May 30, Disney announced that the famous animated movie, Beauty and the Beast is set to become a live-action movie. There is no word yet on who will be cast to play Belle or the Beast, but we can’t wait!

‘Beauty And the Beast': Disney Making Live-Action Film

Due to the overwhelming success of Maleficent, Disney decided to take one of its beloved films and turn it into a live-action movie. We cannot wait to see how this new version compares to the original!

In 1992, Beauty and the Beast was the first full-length animated feature film to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture, as well as Original Song (twice) and Original Score — and it won two!

Two years later, the film was adapted into a Broadway musical and was on for 13 years, until it closed in 2007.

Disney Plans Other Live-Action Films

Bill Condon, 58, is set to direct the film. Bill directed the last two films in the Twilight series and Dreamgirls, which won a 2006 Golden Globe award.

This isn’t the only live-action adaptation Disney has in the works! Currently, Disney is working on Cinderella, directed by Kenneth Branagh, 53; and The Jungle Book, directed by Jon Favreau, 47, according to People.

HollywoodLifers, are you excited to see the live-action version of Beauty and the Beast? Let us know!

I`d love to see Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson play these roles!! They are perfect for it.

Start bringing up to $8012 a mo­­­­­­­­­­­nth. I’ve started this job and I’ve never been happier and now I am sharing it with you, so you can try it too. You can check it out here…

My last pay check was $9500 working 12 hours a week online. My neighbour’s sister has been averaging 15k for months now and she works about 20 hours a week. I can’t believe how easy it was once I tried it out…..
