/ 02:31 PM May 24, 2016

The 1991 classic Disney fairytale “Beauty and the Beast” is finally getting a refashioned makeover as its enchanting trailer was released on Monday. “Harry Potter” alumnus Emma Watson will star as Belle, the gorgeous young heroine.

In the trailer, the memorable voices of original characters Lumière and Cogsworth were heard conversing to each other.


“Look, a girl,” Lumière exclaimed, who is voiced by Ewan McGregor. “What if she is the one?”


Watson was focused on the trailer’s final scene as she attempts to touch the Beast’s forbidden red rose. The film’s release date and the words “Be Our Guest”, which was the tale’s popular song, glistened the screen.

Accompanying Watson in the main cast is “Downtown Abbey” seasoned British actor Dan Stevens, who will appear in the film as the Beast, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Acclaimed star Emma Thompson will play Mrs. Potts while Welsh actor Luke Evans will portray the boastful antagonist and Belle’s annoying lover, Gaston.

The Disney remake was part of a string of fairy tale films such as Maleficent (2014), Cinderella (2015), and The Jungle Book (2016). The ‘Tale as Old as Time’ is finally conquering the big screen on March 17, 2017. Gianna Francesca Catolico
