It’s a tale as old as time, yet Disney’s Beauty and the Beast has yet to receive the live-action movie treatment. That is, until now.
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens, is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters for a contemporary audience. Just about everything that made the original cartoon version great will be featured in the live-action adaptation, including the original music (with an updated score and several additional new songs). But the story remains the same — Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, though, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.
Prior to today, all we had was a teaser, but now you can watch the full Beauty and the Beast trailer above.
Beauty and the Beast hits theaters on March 17, 2017.
