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!
