The first international trailer for Disney’s upcoming live-action Beauty and the Beast has made its way online. Featuring quite a bit of new footage, the trailer also puts the spotlight on some of the animated movie’s most iconic scenes.
Remember the 1987-1989 TV show Beauty and the Beast, starring Ron Perlman and Linda Hamilton, with 14 episodes written by George R. R. Martin? If you haven't seen the show, you might have a chance to watch a new version: the CW may be remaking it.
It was big week for new and returning shows. Over on The CW, Arrow had a very promising premiere, and Beauty and the Beast got off to a pretty good start. Meanwhile The Walking Dead had a huge opening night, and things got worse for 666 Park Avenue and Last Resort.
Passions flare on The Vampire Diaries as Elena begins to embrace her vampire nature. Meanwhile, Charlie's virtue is at stake on Revolution and Cat gets an offer to exchange info on her mother's murder for Vincent.
Before George R. R. Martin created his blockbuster A Song of Ice and Fire series, he was a writer and producer on the Beauty and the Beast TV show, and while Martin hasn't come right out and denounced the CW's developing reboot of the show, he did say the idea makes him "nervous."
Fans of the latest incarnation of Beauty and the Beast can breathe easy. The CW has ordered nine additional episodes of the beastly sci-fi series for a full 22-episode season. Beauty and the Beast joins Arrow in getting a full season pick up.
A few months ago, we told you that The CW—in what some (OK, most) considered an act of unforgiveable sacrilege—had ordered a script for a remake of the '80s fantasy TV series Beauty and the Beast. Well, it seems they weren't the only ones who thought a new Beauty series was a good idea. It turns out ABC has a script, too, and now BOTH of them are getting pilots.
