We're getting closer! Disney's live-action "Beauty and the Beast," starring as Belle and as The Beast, comes out next March. The first teaser trailer, showing just a glimpse of Belle and that iconic rose, came out in May. It's now July, and the first poster has arrived.

First, it was teased by , who plays Lefou:

He followed that today with a look at the poster:

And here it is from the official account, with retweets from several cast members:

Well, if they're going to present such a lovely invitation, guess we'll just have to mark March 17, 2017 on our Disney calendars and count the days until it arrives!

"Beauty and the Beast" co-stars Luke Evans as Gaston; Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle's father; Ewan McGregor as Lumiere; Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, the feather duster; Audra McDonald as Madame Garderobe, the wardrobe; Ian McKellen as Cogsworth; and Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts.

We're still on standby for a full trailer, beyond that initial tease; in the meantime, keep rewatching the 1991 animated movie and prepare to compare it to the new version.
