Did you know: Emma Watson turned down Cinderella before she was offered the role of Belle. “I didn’t know they were going to make Beauty and the Beast at the time I turned down Cinderella,” she said. “But when they offered me Belle, I just felt the character resonated with me so much more than Cinderella did.” CLICK HERE for more. “I have loved Beauty and the Beast since I was about four-years-old” CLICK HERE for more. Disney is bringing the “Beast” to life so vividly in this next installment of live action classics. But how did they get Dan Stevens, who played the beast, to transform himself into such a monstrous creature for the film? As it turns out, he had to film his roles twice. “There was the physical puppeteering and the facial stuff,” says Stevens. “Essentially, you go from these incredibly lavish, amazing, tangible practical sets on these stages at Shepperton [Studios] — and everything’s looking gorgeous and there’s me looking like a crash-test hippo on stilts — and you’ve got to do all that again, but you’re now essentially in Tron. I’m sat wearing a black t-shirt in a sort-of UV booth with 27 cameras. The whole thing felt very very magical in a way. It just felt like pure magic how they fused these two experiences together.” The video below further explains. CLICK HERE for more. Beauty and the Beast hits theaters March 17th. Will you be going?
