On May 20, 2016, Disney announced it was developing a live-action Beauty and the Beast movie.
On June 5, 2018, Disney will release the film in theaters, following a limited theatrical run in May 2019.
The movie will feature a mix of the first and second Beauty and The Beast movies and will be directed by Tim Burton, who has previously directed films like Monsters University and Tim Burton: King of the Jungle.
Burton will produce the film, which will be co-produced by Disney, Universal Pictures, DreamWorks Animation, and Sony Pictures Classics.
We know, for starters, that it’s a “film about a boy who is orphaned by a witch.”
We also know the film will include some new characters, including the prince of a fairy tale kingdom who can transform into a beast and the witch queen, who is also the wife of a prince.
But, as with any film with a live action cast, fans are left wondering about the Beauty and Beast sequels.
When will we see the Beauty & the Beast movies?
Disney’s Beauty and THE Beast sequel will reportedly be released in 2019, but the film’s release date has not been announced.
While it’s clear Disney’s Beauty & THE Beast movie is going to be the first live-animated Beauty and the Beast movie, what about the Disney animated feature Beauty &TheBeast?
There’s no confirmed release date, but fans can still expect a new animated Beauty & The Beast film in 2019.
