The very first trailer for Disney’s Beauty and the Beast has arrived — and it’s absolutely breathtaking! There are so many stunning visuals to fall in love with, and anyone who’s a fan of the original animated film (honestly, who isn’t?!) will surely appreciate the nostalgic elements in this clip.
“It wasn’t about changing anything,” producer David Hoberman explained. “It was about adding dimension to it. We give [fans] everything that they expect and more — no more for more’s sake, more for story’s sake and character’s sake.”
The live-action adaptation, which hits theaters in March, already seems to be the most anticipated movie of 2017. With Beauty and the Beast‘s teaser trailer collecting a record of 91.8 million views within its first 24 hours — even beating the likes of Star Wars: The Force Awakens (88 million views) and Captain America: Civil War (61 million views) — it’s only a matter of time before its full-length preview shatters that record, yet again!
Beauty and the Beast stars Emma Watson as Belle, Dan Stevens as Beast, Luke Evans as Gaston, Josh Gad as LeFou, Kevin Kline as Maurice, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, Audra McDonald as Madame de Garderobe, Ewan McGregor as Lumière, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, and Stanley Tucci as Cadenza.
