The 'Beauty and the Beast' Characters Come to Life in a Fun Batch of Animated Posters

It’s fair to say that we live in times of great uncertainty, where it seems like up is and down and nobody can agree on anything. But amidst the chaos of the world, at least you can count on one thing: Beauty and the Beast is going to be another hugely, wildly popular Disney remake.

The original ’90s animated movie is one of Disney’s most beloved animated films of all time. It was even nominated for Best Picture, although it lost the Oscar to a very different beast (The Silence of the Lambs). Suffice it to say, it was a big, big deal back in 1991 and is going to be a big, big deal in 2017.

We’ll be getting a new trailer for the Bill Condon-directed stunner next week, but today Disney has teased the new footage with some fun new character posters, which you can view below in both their static forms and their animated versions.

Check ’em out.
