Disney Planning 'Beauty and the Beast' Live Action Film!

Tale As Old A Time…

Looks like Disney is giving all the fairy tales a new life.

Variety is reporting that the Mouse House has tapped Bill Condon, most known for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn films, to direct a live action movie of Beauty & The Beast.

While no plot details are known at this time, Disney’s animated version of the classic tale by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve, grossed over $375 million worldwide, spawned a Broadway play and became one of the few animated pics to receive a best picture Oscar nomination.

ARE YOU EXCITED for a live action tale?
