Oh look, you have goosebumps too…
After months of fan made images of Emma Watson as Belle in the upcoming Disney live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, we finally have a teaser with mere seconds of Watson as Belle. In case you haven’t been on the internet this week, check out the 1:33 minute teaser that aired on Good Morning America above.
Sure, the teaser isn’t much, but it is just a teaser. We do get to see the beautifully gothic castle The Beast lives in and get a whimsical voice over from Cogsworth (Ian McKellen) and Lumiere (Ewan McGregor). But of course the cherry on top of the ice cream sundae is FINALLY seeing Emma’s Belle reaching for the rose and BOOM that’s it!
Well, if it wasn’t enough that people seem to be approving of the adaptation thus far, the teaser is breaking records! Yes, hold onto your hats (or des chapeaux) because with in the first 24 hours of the BatB teaser hitting the inter-webs, it broke previous champ Star Wars: The Force Awakens record for most hits!
Pretty exciting stuff.
Here is a little refresher regarding the film:
Beauty and the Beast, directed by Bill Condon, is a retelling of Disney’s classic 1991 animated film that stars Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as the Beast. Kevin Kline, Luke Evans, Josh Gad, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Audra McDonald, Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson also star in the film.
At this point it is hard to tell if Disney’s magic will get the seal of approval from fans of the beloved animated Beauty and the Beast but I mean Cinderella was pretty perfect, so I have hopes. But hopefully they aren’t too high.
Beauty and the Beast invites you to be their guests March 17th, 2017!
