(Boothbay Harbor)    Walt Disney Studios new, live-action “Beauty & the Beast” movie is playing this week at The Harbor Theatre.


Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is the new, live-action

re-telling of the studio’s animated classic with original

music and several new songs. “Beauty and the Beast”

tells the fairy-tale story of Belle, a bright, beautiful and

independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a

beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the

castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the

Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and

soul of the true Prince within. The film stars: Emma Watson

as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston,

the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar (R)

winner Kevin Kline stars as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but

lovable father; Josh Gad plays Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering

aide-de-camp; Golden Globe (R) nominee Ewan McGregor as

Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro

Cadenza, the harpsichord; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth,

the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award (R) winner Emma

Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts. Directed by Oscar (R) winner

Bill Condon based on the 1991 animated film, “Beauty and the Beast” is

produced by Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman,

with eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken, who won two

Academy Awards (R) (Best Original Score and Best Song) for the 1991

animated film, providing the score, which includes new recordings of the

original songs written by Menken and Howard Ashman, as well as several

new songs written by Menken and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice.
