How do you bring an animation classic to life? You hire production designer Sarah Greenwood and costume designer Jacqueline Durran. You put Bill Condon in the director’s chair, and musical legend Alan Menken in place to oversee and score the new musical numbers. Then you cast Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as the Beast, and soon you are humming a ‘tale as old as time’ ... Let’s take a journey through the romantic, fantastic tale, guided by Jacqueline Durran’s comments.
