Synchronise your Cogsworth clocks, as time is ticking towards the release of Disney’s live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, which is available on Blu-ray and DVD now.
It may be the tale as old as time, but it is never the same old story, especially with the announcement of a brand new disc, boasting eight deleted scenes in addition to an alternate version of one of the film’s musical numbers.
Director Bill Condon will introduce the collection of scenes that, mostly, revolve around Gaston (My, what a guy, that Gaston!) and his pint-sized sidekick LeFou – including references to some of the original animated film’s most iconic moments.
The best part? We’re not going to make you wait ‘til chapter three to discover the previously unseen footage; instead we’re taking the opportunity to wax lyrical (like Lumière) over the scenes that, for one reason or another, ended up on the cutting room floor.
So whilst Plumette helps us to sweep up the discarded film, why don’t you prop your feet upon the nearest footstool and pour yourself a piping hot cup of tea? After all, it’s been bubbling, it’s been brewing!
Go on, be our guest.
