Disney has been on a roll in the last few years, opening their movie closet and dusting off their classic animated fairy tales to bring to a new generation. Remaking these classics into live action with digital effects and a little Disney magic has been well-received by fans, both old and new. Next year, Disney brings one of its most iconic and loved animated classics to life and they want you to be their guest – or, at least, an extremely welcome paying audience member.
Good Morning America unveiled this teaser trailer for the live-action remake of the beloved animated tale. This teaser gives us a first look at Emma Watson (Harry Potter film series) as Belle, showing her arrival at the Beast’s castle. The castle’s famous residents can also be heard during the dark screen phase of the trailer (“Look, it’s a girl!…What if she is the one?). What will really pull viewers, especially fans of the animated film, is a piano version of the movie’s iconic theme.
Beauty and the Beast stars Watson as Belle, Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) as Beast, Luke Evans (Fast and Furious 6) as Gaston, Josh Gad (Frozen) as Le Fou, Ian Mckellan (The Hobbit series) as Cogsworth, Ewan McGregor (Star Wars prequel saga) as Lumiere, Emma Thompson (Nanny McPhee) as Mrs. Potts, Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games) as Cadenza, Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Beyond the Lights) as Plumette, Kevin Kline (Silverado) as Maurice, and Audra McDonald (ABC’s Private Practice) as Garderobe.
