Disney just released the official U.S. trailer for "Beauty and the Beast" and it's so perfect you might not get to the end without tearing up. It's also the ideal Monday morning pick-me-up, so consider bookmarking the video to watch every week until the March 17, 2017 opening.
The trailer is filled with familiar moments from the 1991 animated film, brought to life in luscious fashion, with new touches and -- of course -- Emma Watson. The visuals are stunning (although dark), the costumes are lovely, and we're bouncing out of our chairs in excitement.
Here's the official synopsis:
"Disney's 'Beauty and the Beast' is a live-action re-telling of the studio's animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. "Beauty and the Beast" is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, 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.
The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle's eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston's long-suffering aide-de-camp; Golden Globe nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts."
"Beauty and the Beast" opens March 17, 2017.
