Final Trailer For Disney’s ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Remake Released

Share on Pinterest

Disney has unleashed the final trailer for its 2017 remake of the animated classic Beauty and the Beast. Not surprisingly, this trailer is the biggest, grandest, most epic look at the film yet.

The trailer lays out most of the scenes we are familiar with from the 1991 animated film: the little French town, Belle meeting the Beast for the first time, Belle running away and fighting the wolves, the “Something There” sequence, the iconic ballroom scene, and the climactic battle. It feels like the film we all know and love has come alive in a brand new way, 25 years later. What’s more, the trailer features our first listen of the Beauty and the Beast theme song, performed by Ariana Grande and John Legend.

Watch the new trailer in all its glory below:


From Walt Disney Pictures, Beauty and the Beast stars Emma Watson and Dan Stevens as Belle and the Beast, and includes a star-studded cast featuring Luke Evans (Gaston), Josh Gad (Le Fou), Kevin Kline (Maurice), Ewan McGregor (Lumiere), Stanley Tucci (Cadenza), Audra McDonald (Garderobe), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Plumette), Ian McKellen (Cogsworth) and Emma Thompson (Mrs. Potts). The film is directed by Bill Condon and features the classic songs by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, including three new songs by Alan Menken and Tim Rice.

The musical spectacular opens in theatres March 17, 2017. For all your Beauty and the Beast coverage leading up to the release, keep it right here at Rotoscopers!

    I am definitely concerned about the music. The Emma Watson clip we had was awful and they only have the end credits song in this trailer…

  • Phoenix Wright

    I still just can’t get myself to be excited for this one. The Jungle Book, Cinderella, and Maleficent all at least tried to do new things to the stories where as this one still just looks like a carbon copy. I know that are changing some things (like some new songs), but I wish they would have shown some of that off. But I just don’t see myself ever enjoying this one as much as the original

  • I admit it; the trailer looks good. Despite that, I don’t think the movie is going to be nearly as good as the animated version. It seems like Gaston will steal the show.

  • This trailer was BEAUTIFUL!! I just was freaking out when I saw it the first time, the magic, music, and beauty of it all was so full of nostalgia and excitement!! I am still going to be hyped for the experience and super curious how it’ll all be! (note I still love the original always and it will be superior, but it was still a magical trailer for me!)

  • Honestly, my overriding impression of this trailer is that Luke Evans couldn’t be more perfect as Gaston. He looks like he’s having so much fun!

    Not gonna lie- this trailer won me over. I’m a sucker for nostalgia.

    I don’t know whether the remake appearing (too) similar to the original one is a good thing or not. All the more reason for me to see how the actual movie turns out.

    • Considering that the original was nominated for Best Picture, perhaps that’s why they appear to have made few changes to the story. I am not too excited for this.

  • I’m still not too excited for this. Looks more like a CG update of the original, not a remake.

    I’m excited to see this one because I love the original movie. Kind of bummed about the CG character designs though. One of my favorite parts of the original movie is the appeal and charm of the animated character designs, which doesn’t seem to be as achievable in live action. However, I cannot wait to hear the musical numbers!
