First Look At DCL’s Beauty and the Beast

Disney shared an introductory video for their all new stage production of Beauty and the Beast opening this November aboard the Disney Dream.

The short video did not provide a great opportunity to see the details so here are some screenshots for your enjoyment. Starting off we get a good idea of what the Walt Disney Theatre will look like with some sneak peeks of the set storyboards and props.

Continuing the trend of character driven puppetry like Olaf, Disney will be using puppeteers to perform the roles of Lumiere and Fifi.

    Tangled, Frozen, now Beauty and the Beast?
    I’m really disappointed by this trend of new shows that just rehash a movie.

    I know I’m in the minority in my love of Villains Tonight, but shows like Dreams and Twice Charmed are super popular and have some element of originality.
