We hadn’t seen either Vaness Hudgens for Alex Pettyfer on the big screen for quite a while and then a couple of projects come alonog for both of them – finding success in Sucker Punch and I Am Number Four.
But later this month the pair of them join forcecs for Beastly, a modern day re-telling of Beauty and the Beast.
Seventeen year old Kyle (Pettyfer) is the spoiled, shallow and incredibly popular prince of his high school kingdom.
Entirely captivated and empowered by his own physical appearance, Kyle foolishly chooses Kendra (Mary-Kate Olsen), a witch masquerading as a high school student, as his latest target for humiliation.
Unfazed by his cruel behaviour, Kendra decides to teach him a lesson – she transforms him into someone as unattractive on the outside as he is on the inside.
Now he has one year to find someone who can see past the surface and love him, or he will remain ‘Beastly’ forever.
His only hope, a quiet classmate he never noticed named Lindy (Hudgens), may be his best chance to prove that love is never ugly.
Beastly is released 18th April. Here are some clips from the movie:
