Gugu Mbatha-Raw & Audra McDonald Interview | Adding Diversity to Beauty and the Beast #BeOurGuestEvent
Women of Color in a Disney live-action film. I’m already applauding and we haven’t started the interview yet. It was definitely noticeable that Beauty and the Beast got a modern makeover after 25 years – one that definitely perked my interest as a multicultural mom. We got to sit down with Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Plumette) and Audra McDonald (Garderobe) for this unique Beauty and the Beast interview to discuss the extended roles of their characters, thoughts on the added diversity to the film (including the first ever interracial kisses in Disney movie history!), behind-the-scenes fun and more.
