Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is the latest live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic. A first-look teaser trailer has just launched for the film, which opens in cinemas in

Beauty and the Beast refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs.

Beauty and the Beast is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.

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 and Olaf himself Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp.
