List: Beauty and the Beast

Posted on March 17, 2017 at 3:26 pm

This week’s big release is Disney’s live action remake of “Beauty and the Beast” with Emma Watson and Dan Stevens. The animated Disney version is a classic, but there are some other versions worth watching as well. The classic fairy tale characters have been played by:

Lea Seydoux and Vincent Cassel (French version)

Rebecca de Mornay and John Savage starred in the version from the wonderful Fairytale Theatre series.

Jane March and William Gregory Lee (Viking setting)

Josette Day and Jean Marais in “La Belle et La Bete,” an exquisite French version from Jean Cocteau.

And check out my interview with the wonderful Paige O’Hara, the Broadway star who provided the voice of Belle in the Disney animated version.
