The tale as old as time is getting an update -- and so is the accompanying theme song!
With the new live-action "Beauty and the Beast" starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens opening in theaters next week, Disney has released the music video for the movie's theme song, performed by John Legend and Ariana Grande.The video, Grande wears a red ballgown and sings longingly from a castle tower. She joins Legend in the ballroom, where he plays piano. They are accompanied by dancers in red -- to signify the rose petals that play a role in the movie. And in the background, Watson's Beauty and Stevens' Beast waltz together.
Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson performed the original animated film's song, which went on to win two Grammys. In the film versions, Angela Lansbury (as Mrs. Potts) sang the tune in 1991; Emma Thompson sings it in the new movie.
"Beauty and the Beast" opens in theaters March 17.
