Vanessa Hudgens, a tardy Alex Pettyfer attend 'Beastly' premiere

Vanessa Hudgens at the Beastly Movie premiere Alex Pettyfer may have been late to the Los Angeles premiere of "Beastly," but his costars Vanessa Hudgens, Neil Patrick Harris and a sampling of young Hollywood didn't shy away from the film's red carpet Thursday night at the Grove. 

Beastly movie premiere

The film is a modern-day retelling of "Beauty and the Beast" based on Alex Flinn's book. It was set to open last July but CBS Films postponed its release because of "Charlie St. Cloud," which starred Hudgens' "High School Musical" costar and ex-boyfriend Zac Efron. Trouble in paradise? Perhaps.

In "Beastly," Pettyfer plays a handsome but conceited teen who is cursed into ugly oblivion by Mary-Kate Olsen. He has a year to make someone fall in love with him to break the spell. Enter Hudgens' Lindy.

Pettyfer's Kyle gets a little helps from a blind tutor in the film played by Harris, who also graced the red carpet. Fun fact: Harris directed Hudgens as Mimi in "Rent" last summer.

Also making an appearance (and on time) were mini-Kardashian sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner, "Harry's Law's" Brittany Snow and "Modern Family's" Sarah Hyland. Click the pics above for more photos from the red carpet.

Hudgens' Disney alum Raven-Symone Pearman stopped by too.

"Beastly" hits theaters March 4.
