Prepare to be enchanted.

Disney released a new sneak peek from the upcoming live-action Beauty and the Beast Thursday, and it's giving fans an even closer look at what to expect from Belle (Emma Watson) and Beast (Dan Stevens). The behind-the-scenes footage features Belle and Beast in character at a cast table read, as well as director Bill Condon explaining why now is the right time to reboot the classic tale in such an updated way.

Like the teaser trailer that was previously released, this sneak peek gives fans a closer look at some of the castle's most magical rooms, including the ballroom. It also shows off the new versions of Cogsworth and Lumière (voiced by Sir Ian McKellen and Ewan McGregor, respectively).

The initial teaser trailer didn't show much overall, but at the same time it managed to show us everything. As a time lapse, the teaser revealed how the famed castle started with such grandeur and eventually decayed into a dilapidated state. It also gave us a first look hearing of Lumière and Cogsworth, who aptly noticed Bell walking in. "Look! A girl!"

Beauty and the Beast


Disney continues to conceal Beast in all sneak peeks and teaser trailers, but we did catch a silhouette of the shut-in character as he turns on a light at the top of the castle. It looks like we'll just have to wait until March 17, 2017, to get a real look at what's coming our way.
