With great pretentiousness and little point, writer/director Branagh has moved the bard's tale from the forest of Arden to 19th century Japan. Into this vaguely sketched world of pagodas and geishas flees the daughter (Howard) of a banished duke (Blessed), disguising herself as a man and unleashing a series of misunderstandings, gender confusions and mistaken identities amidst court exiles and forest natives.

Get ready to go on an adventure and follow Belle as she falls in love with the most unexpected of Princes with Andrew Geater as the Beast.
Also trying to win Belle’s heart is Philip McGuiness as the brutish Gaston; the brilliant Lewis Devine will be causing mayhem and mischief as French Frank: adding some extra sparkle will be Sarah Walker as Fairy Rose; and the hilarious Si Foster completes the cast as Potty Polly.
