Not to be outdone by the busted Bieber-faced Belle doll, the makers of the motion posters for Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast have taken raggedy to a new level and given us all a beautiful gift in the form of some janky CGI.
Since Beauty and the Beast movie comes out in mid-March, Disney is shooting out a bunch of marketing shit, and today they released characters posters including ones that move. All of the motion pictures are here. Most of them look like Haunted Mansion portraits on the wrong kind of meth, but the one that tops them all is the one of The Beast. The Beast is supposed to be scary, but The Beast in this motion poster is way too 8-bit to be scary. If he roared, it would probably take him a good 6 minutes and he’d buffer at least 4 times while doing so. It looks like Disney’s marketing department said “fuck it,” and just lifted a character from an original Xbox game and slapped it onto a new background before going to happy hour.
Did Disney get Next Media Animation to do that poster?
I had my doubts about Disney doing a live-action Beauty and the Beast, but after seeing that doll and that motion poster. I am glad that they went through with it. Because both of those things are solid gold. And here’s the rest of the character posters including Audra McDonald looking like Coco Montrese in Marie Antoinette drag and Stanley Tucci looking like an electrocuted Albert Einstein who’s about to pitch your nipples.
