In recent years Disney has successfully translated some of its animated classics to the big screen with Cinderella, Maleficent and The Jungle Book, and next it's the turn of Beauty and the Beast to get the live-action fairytale reimagining with Emma Watson playing 'Belle' who falls in love with and rescues Dan Stevens cursed prince 'Beast'.
