There are a full ten months to go until Disney releases its long-gestating remake of Beauty and the Beast, but then again, it is never too early to start building hype. Disney has done just that with the release of the film’s teaser, a 90-second glimpse into the upcoming reboot of the tale as old as time.
Not much is revealed in the teaser other than a few gorgeous tracking shots of the titular Beast’s castle, but we do get our first glimpse of Emma Watson as Belle. The familiar voices of Ian McKellen and Ewan McGregor also make a brief appearance as the dynamic duo of furniture, Cogsworth and Lumiere. Whether Disney will give us a tease of these two singing “Be Our Guest” is anyone’s guess, but one can dream.
Beauty and the Beast will be released in theaters on March 17th, 2017.
Another essential of ‘90’s cinema is revisited in the new music video from RZA.
