Watch Beauty and the Beast Come to Life in the First Live-Action Teaser Trailer

Trailer FrenzyA special place to find the newest trailers for movies and TV shows you're craving.

There’s precious little in the first actual footage from Disney’s live-action version of Beauty and the Beast, but there’s a glimpse of Emma Watson as Belle and some mightily familiar sets and music.


We also hear voices that sound like Cogsworth (Ian McKellan) and Lumiere (Ewan McGregor). Along with the reminder that this movie takes place in France, but only the candelabra has a French accent. And nothing hits you right in the nostalgia than a shot of that ballroom paired with the iconic music. And the claws going through the family portrait promise a very faithful-to-the-cartoon adaptation.

It’s the Disney version, so it is basically an adaptation of a stage play which was an adaptation of an animated feature which was an adaptation of the source material - a book.

I look forward to the Alan Dean Foster novelization, so the circle can be complete.
