One cause for the excitement over Disney’s live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast is the chance to hear new versions of the classic songs featured in the original animated film. Now, Disney has released a brand new clip from the highly anticipated film featuring Emma Watson and the supporting cast singing the song titled “Belle”.
Much like the original film, the new clip features Belle traveling across town and engaging with the citizens as they all comment on each other through song.
Written by composer Alan Menken and lyricist Howard Ashman, the song was the opening musical number for the original film.
