Beauty And The Beast
According to the Beauty And The Beast cast, Dan Stevens' Beast will be 'witty'... and like Donald Trump... in the new movie Walt Disney Studios / YouTube

Walt Disney Pictures revealed the eagerly-anticipated full-length trailer for Beauty And The Beast on Monday (14 November) and to celebrate the sneak peek's unveiling, some of the film's cast took part in a Facebook Live Q&A.

Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans and Josh Gad joined director Bill Condon to answer questions from fans, who were eager to find out what differences they should expect between the new film and the 1991 animated classic.

"The Beast that's in our version is incredibly kind of witty and has this very dry, English, sense of humour that Dan [Stevens] doesn't have at all," Watson, who plays protagonist Belle in the movie, laughed, after saying that Beast is one of her favourite Disney characters and in another world, she'd love to play him.

"There's something so interesting about the darkness there is in the Beast and how he finds redemption. I just, the angst, really, I just want to play someone who has that level of angst!"

Watson wasn't the only one who discussed the Beast's personality traits either. Stevens, who lends both his voice and physical acting to bring the motion capture character to life was asked specifically by a fan whether the film will delve into the Beast's backstory and, according to the Downton Abbey actor, Prince Adam wasn't unlike President-elect Donald Trump in his youth.

"That's an interesting question, isn't it? I suppose we see a little bit of his backstory. We learn a little bit more about this vain, spoiled, rich kid, son of a billionaire who treats women like objects and lives in a ridiculous, luxury tower," he jokingly replied.

Also starring the voice talents of Emma Thompson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Stanley Tucci, Ewan McGregor and Ian McKellen and featuring new songs composed by Alan Menken and Tim Rice, Beauty And The Beast is scheduled to reach both UK and US screens on 17 March 2017.
