You may be living under a rock and if you have you should at least temporarily emerge to check out the new Beauty and the Beast trailer. Heck, everyone has seen it – it even broke Fifty Shades Darker’s record for most watched trailer in a single day.
The Beauty and the Beast cast Josh Gad (LeFou), Dan Stevens (the Beast), Emma Watson (Belle), Luke Evans (Gaston), and director Bill Condon did a Q&A on Facebook Live after the trailer debuted.
The questions were audience submitted and one of the highlights of the session came when Dan Stevens was asked: ‘is there any aspect of the Beast’s character we’ll get to see in the film which we’ve never seen before?’
Steven answers: ‘We learn a little bit more about this vain, spoiled, rich kid son of a billionaire who treats women like objects and lives in a ridiculous luxury tower…’ and you can see Watson starting to smile when he mentions the ‘treating women like objects’ and nearly losing it when he mentions the tower.
