Social media went into a frenzy today with the release of the new Disney live-action re-telling of Beauty and the Beast. The trailer opens with a haunting but beautiful, desolate castle. The voices of Ewan McGregor (Lumiere) and Ian McKellen (Cogsworth) feature as they describe Belle's arrival at the castle. Emma Watson's face is briefly visible as she enters the castle and says 'Hello'. It's a breathtaking teaser that has left us wanting more.

The film stars Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar® winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Golden Globe® nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, the feather duster; six-time Tony Award® winner Audra McDonald as Madame Garderobe, the wardrobe; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.
