The first trailer for live-action Beauty and the Beast has landed and we’re so excited.

We’ve been dying to get a look at the live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast ever since Emma Watson announced last year she was set to star as Belle.

The first trailer for the film has just landed and it’s as magical as we expected.

We don’t yet get to see any of our favourite characters and only get a brief glimpse of Belle, but if the eerie music and enchanting scenery is anything to go by, this remake looks like it’s going to be as good as we hoped.

The line-up for the film is pretty stellar: Downton Abbey heart-throb Dan Stevens will star as the Beast, The Hobbit’s Luke Evans as Gaston, Golden Globe nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere and Oscar-winner Emma Thompson as Mrs Potts are among the actors cast in the film.

Bill Condon, best known for Dreamgirls, will be directing the 1991 Disney animated film.

It is set to be released on March 17 2017.

Best get up to scratch with the words to ‘Be Our Guest’, then.
