Some delightful news: Ice Cube is teaming up with Disney and Tommy Kail, the Tony-award winning director of Hamilton for a “modern and musical” take on that old chestnut, Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist.
A Disney fan site called Stitch Kingdom has published what they claim to be the first clear image of Belle and the beast from the upcoming live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast.
