Tale as old as time, true as it can be…
On March 17 at a theater near you, Disney will release their long-awaited live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. If you can’t wait that long, and you happen to be at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you can catch a sneak peek of the film at the Walt Disney: One Man’s Dream attraction.
The 8-minute advance viewing of the film opens with a brief introduction by the film’s stars, Dan Stevens (Beast) and Emma Watson (Belle). Then comes the real treat—a clip of the opening number, Belle, sung by Emma Watson and Luke Evans (Gaston). The preview ends with vignettes from the film, closing with the familiar sight of Belle reaching for the glass bell that holds the enchanted rose.
If you are lucky enough to attend the sneak peek, make sure you see the display that features a collection of costumes and props actually used in the film. The One Man’s Dream display includes Belle’s iconic yellow ball gown that was worn by Emma Watson.
The Beauty and the Beast sneak peek can be seen for a limited time at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The advance look was running continuously throughout the day during my visit, but I would advise you to check a Times Guide when you arrive.
