This spring, Disney will have yet another hit on its hands when Beauty and the Beast hits theaters. The long-awaited movie will bring the classic animated tale to life for new and old audiences. The live-action adaptation stars Emma Watson as Belle while Dan Stevens takes on the disgruntled Beast. And, now, two new TV spots for the film have dropped which contain some stunning new footage.
In the newest clip, fans are treated to some familiar footage from the original movie. The imagery is brief, but fans are teased with the Prince’s transformation into the Beast. A close-up of the Beast can be seen with lightened fur, and the character’s head is framed by a traditional powdered wig. With wide blue eyes, the Prince has a horrified expression that then melts away into a wide shot. Fans can only see the Prince’s shadow, but they can see his profile curl in anguish against the ornate walls of his then-pristine castle.
Beauty and the Beast is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.
Beauty and the Beast stars Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belles eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Golden Globe nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, the feather duster; six-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald as Madame Garderobe, the wardrobe; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.
Beauty and the Beast will be released in U.S. theaters on March 17, 2017.
