WATCH: Emma Watson sparkles in first Beauty and the Beast trailer
The first trailer for the new live action Beauty and the Beast is here. And it’s spine-chillingly gorgeous.
After so many months of rumours and speculation, fans of the original animation will struggle to contain their excitement as they lay eyes on the snow covered Disney castle, and hear that iconic tinkly music from their childhood.
We then get a peek inside the beast’s grand chandeliered palace, where those stained glass windows and that ornate grand piano reside. Can you feel the memories pouring back, yet?
Alongside the glorious Emma Watson, whom we see for the first time – if ever so briefly – in the role of Belle, the film will star Dan Stevens (Beast), Luke Evans (Gaston), Ewan McGregor (Lumiere), Emma Thompson (Mrs Potts), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Plumette), Sir Ian McKellen (Cogsworth), Josh Gad (Le Fou), Stanley Tucci (Cadenza) and Kevin Kline (Maurice).
The only downside to the trailer? The reminder that we still have to wait 10 months till we can see the movie in full, as it’s set to hit theatres in March 2017. We can hardly contain ourselves until then.
