A delightful new trailer for Disney’s upcoming Beauty and the Beast movie debuted on ABC Monday night.

‘Beauty And The Beast’ Trailer

The film stars Emma Watson as Belle, an intelligent and beautiful young woman who is taken captive by a beast, played by Dan Stevens. Belle is captured when she attempts to save her father (Kevin Kline), and becomes a prisoner inside the beast’s magical but cursed castle.

Belle is understandably terrified of The Beast, but when he rescues Belle from a vicious pack of wolves, she learns to look past his menacing exterior, and finds the gentle soul of a prince that hides within him.

She says to the injured Beast, “You have to help me, you have to stand.” Belle then proceeds to nurse The Beast back to health following the injury.

The supporting cast for the film include Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellen and Nathan Mack, who play The Beast’s castle staff, all of which are household items like teacups and candleholders.

The synopsis for the fairytale reads: “Beauty and the Beast is a live-action re-telling 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.”

Bill Condon directed the adaption of the Disney film, and composer Alan Menken provided the score. Menken is an eight-time oscar-winning composer, who won Oscars for best original score and best song for Aladdin and The Little Mermaid.

The highly-anticipated movie, produced by Mandeville Films, arrives in theaters March 17.
