Disney’s animated classic takes on a new form, with a widened mythology and an all-star cast. A young prince, imprisoned in the form of a beast, can be freed only by true love. What may be his only opportunity arrives when he meets Belle, the only human girl to ever visit the castle since it was enchanted. source

Beauty and the Beast is rated PG with a running time of 129 minutes.

Beauty and the Beast Teaser Released

The first teaser for Disney’s live action Beauty and the Beast released today, starring Emma Watson in the titular role.  Set for a March 2017 debut, the filming has been kept very quiet since it began.  There has yet to be any major set or costume leaks whatsoever.  Today, we get our first look at the film. You can watch the first Beauty and the Beast teaser below, and for those who can’t watch can read my description beneath that.

For those unable to watch, it begins with the outside of the Beast’s castle, mimicking the familiar Disney logo, with a snowy trail of pixie dust arcing over it. A slowed version of the original trailer’s music begins to play, which I have to admit, excited me greatly. We get a beautifully dreary look at the Beast’s castle.  It’s an elegant time lapse depicting the castle in its glory days to its dismal, dusty present.  Cracks in the floors appear, cobwebs collects, and gorgeous candles melt to nothing.  A portrait of the royal family appear, king and queen included this time, and the prince depicted as a young man this time (correcting the oversight of his portrait as an adult from the cartoon). Then the infamous scratches across his face appear with a snarl echoing as it cuts to black.

Finally! We’re gonna get to see the Beauty, Belle.  The broken door to the castle creaks open and a shadow appears.  Lumiere and Cogsworth exclaim it’s a girl and she might be the one! Then we hear Emma Watson’s very melodic voice say, “Hello?”  Then the familiar “Tale as Old as Time” begins to play. The magic rose appears, and Belle’s eyes can be seen gazing upon it.

What did you think? As one of my all time favorite Disney movies, I am absolutely thrilled to see Beauty and the Beast come to life. Beauty and the Beast has done phenomenally well both in theaters as an animated feature, being the first to be nominated for Best Picture by the Academy, and won a Tony award while on Broadway.  While it’s hard to say what other deviations will be taken with the film at this point, I’d like to think that this will follow the footsteps of Maleficent and Cinderella and not feature any singing, but have the original score play in the background. I’m also sure this is when Disney will officially confirm the Beast has an actual name (fun fact: he did not in the animated film. Fans were bothered by this for years, and once a concept piece of the character appeared with the name “Adam” next to it, they ate it up. Fans have been calling him that ever since.)

The film stars Emma Watson, Luke Evans, Dan Stevens, and Ewan McGregor and is directed by Bill Condon. See it in theaters March 17, 2017.
