While at this stage we’ve seen several images from the upcoming Disney live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast both official and unofficial.

And now we have a poster… and it’s, well, it’s exactly what we imagined it would be, really.

We’re not even sure if we’re being critical or not, we just think that, while it looks sumptuous, we were hoping for something a little different. But it looks like Disney are shooting straight down the line on this one.

What do you all think?

Beauty and the Beast stars Emma Watson as Belle, Dan Stevens as Beast, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, Luke Evans as Gaston, Josh Gad as LeFou, Kevin Kline as Maurice (Belle’s father), Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, the feather duster, Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, and Stanley Tucci as a grand piano named Cadenza.

Bill Condon is directing Beauty and the Beast from a script by Stephen Chbosky, and the film will be produced by Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman. Eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken, who won two Academy Awards for the 1991 animated classic, has written three new songs for the production with Sir Tim Rice.

Walt Disney Pictures will release the movie on March 17, 2017.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
