I still remember waiting for days to issue a copy of ‘Beauty and the Beast’ novel but eventually, days multiplied into weeks and it took me almost 6 months to get my hands on it. This fairy tale was written by French novelist Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve and was published in 1740. Centuries have passed but the story has not aged.
A week ago, Disney released the mystical teaser of its live-action adaptation, with the beautiful Emma Watson playing the role of ‘Belle’, and shortly later, the magical teaser received 91.8 million views, beating the previous record-breaking teaser of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ with 88 million views.
Though the teaser gives away very little about the story, viewers got a glimpse of Belle’s hand and a ring. To enjoy the movie, you have to wait for almost a year, it will hit the theaters in March 17, 2017.
