Beauty and the Beast trailer gives our first look at Emma Watson’s Belle

And fans love it!

It’s a tale as old as time, but Beauty and the Beast is a story that deserves to be retold. And so, Walt Disney Studios is releasing a live-adaptation of its Oscar-winning animated classic.

The first trailer has just dropped and the brief minute and a half long teaser showed off the new look of the film’s Gothic castle as well the first glimpse of Emma Watson as Disney princess, Belle. 

Emma is joined in the film by Dan Stevens as the Beast, Luke Evans as Gaston, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, Ewan McGregor as Lumiere and Emma Thompson as Mrs Potts. Josh Gad, Stanley Tucci, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Kevin Kline and Audra McDonald also star. 

Bill Condon, best known for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, is directing the remake from a script by Stephen Chbosky, who directed Watson in The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

Beauty and the Beast will be released in U.S. theaters on 17th March, 2017.
