It's a tale as old as time, but Beauty and the Beast is a story that deserves to be retold. And so, Walt Disney Studios is releasing a live-adaptation of its Oscar-winning animated classic on March 17, 2017. A teaser trailer premiered Monday on ABC's Good Morning America, nine months after the first footage was previewed during the annual D23 Expo in Anaheim, Calif.
Directed by Bill Condon, the movie stars Emma Watson as Belle, Dan Stevens as the Beast, Luke Evans as Gaston, Kevin Kline as Maurice, Josh Gad as LeFou, Adrian Schiller as Monsieur D'Arque, Hattie Morahan as Agathe the Enchantress, Henry Garrett as the King and Harriet Jones as the Queen. The film boasts an impressive voice cast, too, with Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, Ewan McGregor as Lumière, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, Stanley Tucci as Cadenza, Audra McDonald as Wardrobe, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Babette and Nathan Mack as Chip Potts.
Wanna see Watson in the yellow dress? Better luck next time.
To the delight of fans around the world, Condon's version of Beauty and the Beast will feature many of the beloved songs Alan Menken wrote for the 1991 animated hit (and later the Broadway musical).
