It’s a tale as old as time and on March 17, that tale gets a live-action update. Disney just dropped the first full-length trailer for its most highly-anticipated remake ever and it’s as glorious as hoped. This isn’t a scene-by-scene remake of the animated classic. The refashioned version features our heroine Belle (Emma Watson) as the inventor. Seriously goosebumps after watching this.
Also appearing in the film are Dan Stevens (Beast), Luke Evans (Gaston), Josh Gad (Le Fou), Kevin Kline (Maurice), Ian McKellen (Cogsworth), Emma Thompson (Mrs. Potts), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Plumette). The live-action film will feature all your favorite tracks, along with new tunes penned by Alan Menken and Tim Rice.
The remake has a lot to live up to. The original animated 1991 film was the third highest-grossing film that year and became the first animated film ever to earn a Best Picture Oscar nomination. It also spawned a Broadway stage musical that ran for 13 years.
Beauty and the Beast waltzes into theaters on March 17. Check out the action-packed trailer below. Sadly, Disney is still keeping all the musical numbers a secret. Stop torturing us and let us hear Watson belt out a tune.
