The Beauty and the Beast live-action remake is just around the corner and hype for the movie is growing. Recently, it was announced that IMAX would be hosting special showings of the film. On top of that, we have two new TV spots to savor.
The first features a brief overview of the Beauty and the Beast story, although we all know what it is since it’s a tale as old as time, right? Still, the TV spot – the movie’s thirteenth – is a cute look at Cogsworth (Ian McKellen) and Lumiere (Ewan McGregor), who introduce us to the film’s story.
The second spot is twice as long and highlights Beast’s (Dan Stevens) self-proclaimed “foolish” hope that Belle (Emma Watson) could one day love him. It’s more of a poignant and powerful spot as juxtaposed to the humor found in the first one.
You can watch the two new TV spots below.
Are you ready for Beauty and the Beast to hit theaters? Do you think the live-action remake will captivate the hearts of Disney and fairytale-lovers everywhere? Let us know what you’re looking forward to in the comments below!
Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action adaptation of the studio’s animated classic which 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.
Beauty and the Beast will be released in theaters on March 17, 2017.
