Disney and Funko are at it again.
New "Beauty and the Beast" Pop! Vinyl figures are coming in February, 2017 -- a month before Disney's live-action, Emma Watson-starring adaption. There are 4 new figures: Gaston, as well as Beast and Belle in their adorable snow cloak, paired with birdies. Look at them below in all of their block-headed, beady eyed glory.
"But wait," you may be thinking. "After watching yesterday's CGI-tastic trailer, I need to express my excitement via monetary action NOW." Well, don't worry, Funko already offers Beast in his royal blue suit and Belle in her iconic gold dress. Also available? Everyone's favorite anthropomorphic Home Goods items Mrs. Potts, Chip, Lumiere and Cogsworth.
If you're a fan of the tale as old as time, this has been a good month. From the get- go "Beauty and the Beast" has distinguished itself from the potential Disney Reimagining Fatigue with the perfect casting of Emma Watson as Belle.
Previously released images confirm that the new adaption seems to bring the spirit of the classic 1991 animated film to life, creating a balance between real and fantastical.
Directed by Bill Condon and starring Watson and Dan Stevens, "Beauty and the Beast" will be released March 17, 2017.
