Disney’s new teaser trailer for Beauty and the Beast is one and a half minutes of pure magic
It is a tale as old as time, but Disney have taken it’s classic interpretation of the Brother’s Grimm tale and revamped it to create Beauty and the Beast the live action movie. The first official teaser trailer for the live-action film slated for release in March 2017 is out now. If you’re on your phone, we recommend you get your headphones ready to enjoy the new Beauty and the Beast trailer from Disney for maximum impact!
The trailer transports you into the dark, mysterious world in which Belle (Emma Watson) stumbles upon the gothic castle of the Beast. While the trailer doesn’t give much away in terms of performance, it takes the breathtaking original score from the 1991 animated movie and transforms it.
The opening shots show the castle on a dark and snowy night, before the pristine piano kicks off the eternally memorable melody from the prologue of the original Beauty and the Beast before it takes the score and enriches it.
The following shots take us inside the castle, to a stunning ballroom with golden light streaming through the room to illuminate the crystal chandeliers and dusty floors, then through an empty corridor we see candelabra (was that Lumière?), and the castle’s front door creaking open before cutting to black when the characters (off-screen) speak.
“Look a girl,” whispers Lumière.
“Yes I can see it’s a girl you fool,” retorts Cogsworth, played by the great Ian McKellan.
The final thing we see before Disney invites viewers to “Be Our Guest” on March 17 2017 is the enchanted rose, and Belle’s face as she reaches out to touch it.
Still to be revealed is what the enchanted characters will look like, including the Beast who is played by Dan Stevens, and Mrs. Potts (Emma Thompson). Also in the cast is Stanley Tucci, Ewan McGregor (Lumière), Luc Evans (Gaston) and Josh Gad (Le Fou).
Who else is excited to return to the reimagined world and see Belle meet her Prince Charming?
