Beauty And The Beast is an adaptation of Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont's fairy tale. The film has been directed by Bill Condon and co-produced by Walt Disney Pictures and Mandeville Films.

Beauty And The Beast is a story about Belle (Emma Watson) who is taken prisoner by a fearsome beast (Dan Stevens) in his castle. However, Belle befriends the staff of the castle and learns to look beyond the beast's hideous exterior. Imprisoned in the castle, Belle learns that the beast was a local aristocrat who is cursed by a mysterious sorceress with his servants into their current states as penance for their past callousness. She also tries to evade a narcissistic hunter who is obsessed to have her.

Emma Watson, who gained popularity for portraying the role of Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter film series, will next be seen in James Ponsoldt's The Circle co-starring Tom Hanks, John Boyega, Karen Gillan, Ellar Coltrane, Patton Oswalt, Glenne Headly and Bill Paxton. The film is based on Eggers' 2013 novel of the same name.
