WATCH – How Did Disney Turn Dan Stevens into The Beast?


When Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast premiered earlier this year, audiences were enthralled by Dan Stevens’ performance at The Beast.

However, bringing The Beast to life took a monumental amount of effort on both the part of Stevens and the production crew. USA Today has posted a behind-the-scenes video of how The Beast was created on its Facebook page, and it’s pretty fascinating stuff. For his facial movements, Stevens was essentially using a very high-end “Snapchat” filter, similar to how Disney has been de-aging its actors.

Beauty and the Beast comes to home video on June 6, 2017, and will include a ton of other behind-the-scenes videos.
