The live-action remake of the 1991 hit movie Beauty and the Beast is “unexpectedly very emotional” as described by actor Josh Gad.

He shared his observation of the show and said, “It’s going to blow everybody away.” He also added that it is “magical.”  He said that “Having seen Beauty and the Beast, I can tell you that [fans] are going to react appropriately awestruck and amazed.”

Josh Gad plays the role of Le Fou, a servant of Gaston (played by Luke Evans). Despite being enemies in the movie, he admired Dan Stevens who plays the Beast. He was all praise as to how Stevens tackled his role. Emma Watson plays Belle. The first Belle believes that Watson was the perfect choice for the role because she is intelligent and has humor.

The actor who appeared in The Angry Birds movie informed that the film is not a replacement of the original movie as per Inquisitr. It is a movie that drew inspiration from the animated one, sort of an evolution from there.

Other members of the cast were Emma Thompson, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Ian McKellen, Audra McDonald, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Kevin Kline.

The Bill Condon-helmed movie takes the plot of the original classic. Belle was a prisoner of the Beast in his castle. Good hearted as she is, she befriended the castle’s staff. Despite her fear, she was able to look into the real person inside the horrible creature. Gaston is out to get Belle for his own.

A trailer was released on May 23, 2016 and it gathered more than 91 million views in just one day. It has reached the level of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War. The official poster was released on July 7, 2016. The release date was already set since 2015. Beauty and the Beast will hit theaters on March 17, 2017.
