The Beast from the live-action Beauty and The Beast looks like a goat. Well, a goat-man-hybrid to be precise.
Imagine like a goat's DNA has been spliced with a cast member of Downton Abbey and you've got Beast from Disney's live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast. To be fair to Emma Watson, however, she's pretty much got the look of Belle nailed because, let's face it, all she has to do is wear a yellow dress and look like Emma Watson.
The images, which leaked online last night, look pretty genuine - although it could very be something closer to an early rendering of the character that'll be played by Dan Stevens. Not only that, this is Disney and they're probably going to spend the GDP of a small country on getting the hair looking right, never mind all the animation and CGI that'll go into the whole thing as well.

Fan reactions have been somewhat mixed about the whole thing, as many feel that the original is one of Disney's greatest creations and trying to force it into live-action won't work.
To be honest, we would have said the same about The Jungle Book's live-action remake and we threw it in our early predictions' list for Best Picture at this year's Oscars. In other words, let's see what it actually looks like before we go rushing to conclusions.
Beauty & The Beast is set for a release date of March 17th, 2017.
