Only four months away from its theatrical debut, Disney has released an international trailer for the upcoming live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast. The new trailer is a sort of remix of the first teaser trailer and the first official trailer but captivates the heart nonetheless.
The remake brings to life all of the characters from the original plus a new character: a harpsichord named Cadenza created just for the film, voiced by Stanley Tucci. Alan Menken, composer for the original also returns and will introduce three new songs into the new film.
The film stars Emma Watson as Belle, Dan Stevens as the Beast, Luke Evans as Gaston, Josh Gad as Le Fou, Ewan McGregor as Lumière, Sir Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, Kevin Kline as Belle’s father Maurice, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, with a script penned by Evan Spiliotopoulos and Stephen Chbosky, directed by Bill Condor.
Beauty and the Beast hits theaters March 17, 2017.
In this live-action re-imagining of the fairy tale, a young woman (Emma Watson) takes her father’s place as prisoner in a beast’s castle, only to fall in love with her beastly captor (Dan Stevens), who turns out to be a prince.
