Oh the nostalgia!
Walt Disney Pictures has dropped the first full trailer for their live-action version retelling of the 1991 classic Beauty and the Beast, and surprisingly it looks rather better than expected. From what we’ve been told so far the film will also stay to true to the original music while updating the score a few new songs.
Beauty and the Beast tells the story of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who finds herself 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 exterior and discovers the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.
Check out the trailer below.
Emma Watson looks absolutely marvellous as Belle, not to mention I love the new take on the inhabitants of the Beast’s castle. Disney is definitely taking a risk remaking such a beloved classic. Hopefully they don’t screw it up!
What did you think of the trailer?
