Disney movies are often adaptations from fairy tales. For example, Cinderella is a Grimm Brothers tale and The Little Mermaid is by Hans Christian Andersen. Beauty and the Beast is adapted from the fairy tale of the same name by French writer, Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve, published in 1740. The new fad lately is remaking the animated Disney movies into live-action films.
Disney’s next adaptation is Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson as Belle. Photos have recently been leaked of Belle and the Beast for the first time and Belle in the library!
