Beauty and the Beast is, to this day, one of the most popular Disney animated films.
As a result, many were sceptical about its live-action adaptation, the fifteenth cinematic version of this tale.

Without being incredible, the film is meant to be a very correct adaptation in its narration, although it doesn’t bring much to the universe built in the original work.

However, critics and viewers alike praised the film for its aesthetic beauty, as the team has achieved feats of skill in recreating the fairytale and cartoon world.

Recreating the Beast, living objects or even elements of the castle in computer-generated images was a titanic work and one can only marvel at the appearance of certain elements compared to other films where the SFX is not well done. Working against a green background has often been frowned upon by some directors, preferring to use mock-ups or recreate a set completely.

Dan Stevens in combination and with stilts

Today, we present you images from the shooting of the film where we see the always radiant Emma Watson dancing with Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey, Legion…) in a voluminous and sensor-covered combination in order to retranscribe her movements. Not content with having to work in this cumbersome outfit, the actor also had to move on stilts in order to make more than two meters.

A work on facial expressions

In addition to moving around in an unseemly outfit to capture his movements, the British actor also had to do an incredible amount of work to make his facial expressions fit the face of the Beast. This involved using Mova, a tool for capturing facial expressions, first used in the film Benjamin Button in 2008. The rendering is up to the public’s expectations.
