The live-action remake of the beloved Beauty and the Beast is only 10 days away, and Disney is pulling out all the stops to show you just why you should head to the theater by releasing three new TV spots for the film, which currently holds a 3.23 out of 5 on ComicBook.com's anticipation rankings.
In the "Magic TV spot, Gaston (played by Luke Evans) recounts the absurdity of their being magic in the world, though don't tell him there's a talking teapot and teacup who might have issues with that. The spot also gives fans a glimpse of the turning point for Belle (Emma Watson) when she asks Beast (Dan Stevens) if there's any way to break the curse. It's worth it alone though to see Cogsworth defend himself with a sword, which for some reason brings to mind the "Farfegnugen" screamed by Niles Crane on Fraiser...not really sure why.
In the "Cursed" spot, fans get a better look at the prince's transformation into the Beast, and what the servants at the castle looked like before their transformations. You can also see a quick snippet of the final confrontation between Beast and Gaston.
Finally, in the "Even Better Than The Original" spot, you can see a bit more of the anticipated "Be Our Guest" musical number and a few more scenes between Beast and Belle.
Hit the next slides to see the "Cursed" and "Better Than The Original" spots, and make sure to rate the film in ComicBook.com's anticipation rankings!
