I thought Desplat has long been attached to this new Christophe Gans film, but now IMDB is saying that it's Pierre Adenot providing the score, and a google search reveals that Film Music Reporter reported this back in October. Anyone know if Desplat left the project/was replaced? Or was his involvement just a rumor?

Also, is anyone familiar with Adenot's music at all?

Looks better than I thought it would.

I'd probably go, if it ever shows up here in San Diego.

Music sounds predictable, if the preview is any indication.

However, no one is ever going to top Jean Cocteau's version, which is definitive.

And, though the Disney cutesifies everything in sight, it still works, beautifully.

So this will have some pretty stiff competition to match.

The remake of a timeless classic (not the Disney!) - made by Christophe Gans, the director of Brotherhood of the Wolf. That can't end well.

Yes, Pierre Adenot is a great composer ! One of the best of his generation with Philippe Rombi and Alexandre Desplat. But sadly, not enough considered and employe.

I can not wait to hear his music for La Belle et La Bête ! smile

The big-eyed, Manga-like puppies look a bit disconcerting, and the beast is a little too Disney, but otherwise it looks wonderful, style-wise.

Well, the samples on Amazon fr. sound great and very much like Desplat...I think the movie was temped with his music but this could be a surprise! I think Quartet is releasing this. They should have announced their new batch by now.

although i would still prefer to see this older TV remake scored by Luboš Fišer released... actually one of the very few of his scores that survived until now...
