Disney brings your childhood magic and wonderment to life with the first trailer for Beauty and the Beast, which premiered this morning. Emma Watson stars as Belle in the live-action remake of the 1991 animated classic, opposite the Beast (played by Dan Stevens). The princess finds her father Maurice (Kevin Kline) trapped inside a grand castle. Soon, she comes face to face with the haunting Beast.
Last week, Watson shared the official poster of the movie. "So happy I get to show all of you the new teaser poster for Beauty and the Beast!" she wrote. "You are the very first people to see this! I hope you like it. Love, Emma x." Stunning shots of the actress donning the iconic yellow ballgown were also released.
Beauty and the Beast, directed by Bill Condon, is set for a March 17, 2017 release. It also stars Ewan McGregor as Lumière, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, Luke Evans as Gaston, Josh Gad as Le Fou, plus Stanley Tucci, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and more.
Legendary Disney composer Alan Menken (the original Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid) will also create brand new songs for the movie's soundtrack. But before then, dig into more nostalgia with the latest episode of Fuse's Besterday podcast below:
