Full ‘Beauty and the Beast’ trailer, poster pay homage to original classic film

Disney’s next live-action film, Beauty and the Beast, will set out to deliver the impossible as the classic animated film rests in a class by itself. Emma Watson and Dan Stevens lead the cast as Belle and the Beast with an amazing supporting cast.

Check out the first full trailer below.

Fans got a treat before the reveal with a new poster paying homage to the original film: the dance scene.

The Disney classic officially turns 25 years-old in less than two weeks. The massive hit was the first animated movie to earn an Oscar nomination for Best Picture, and it was also the third highest-grossing film of 1991.

Disney is likely hoping for similar success with their live-action update.

Academy Award winner Alan Menken, who discussed some of the new songs he wrote for new Disney film is “Our Song Lives On,” which we’ll hear more than once in the movie:

It ends up being a song called ‘Our Song Lives On,’ and it’s done in a number of forms. The first time it’s sung, it’s Belle’s father (Kevin Kline) singing as he’s completing a music box, and basically it’s [about], ‘How does a moment live forever? How do you hang on to precious moments?’ Then, it’s reprised by Belle, and then it’s the song that’s actually over the end credits at the end of the movie. Disney hasn’t announced it yet, but there’s going to be some wonderful singer on the end credits song.

Beauty and the Beast also stars Luke Evans as Gaston, Josh Gad as Lefou, Kevin Kline as Maurice, Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, Audra McDonald as Madame Garderobe, and Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza.

Beauty and the Beast is in theaters March 17, 2017.
