Share This Article:
Yesterday the world rejoiced as the latest Beauty and the Beast trailer was released, sprinkling a touch of magic to one of the dreariest and rainiest days of the year so far. The star-studded new live-action adaptation is set to be one of the biggest blockbusters of the year, with the first teaser trailer racking up over 127 million views within 24 hours of its release. The trailer shows a sneak peak of Belle's journey from the idyllic French village to the grand castle in which she is imprisoned, and where the real magic begins. The iconic voices of British treasures such as Emma Thompson, Ian McKellen and Ewan McGregor mirror the original voices of Mrs Potts, Cogsworth and Lumiere fantastically, and the casting of Emma Watson is what I'm sure will be proved to be an award-winning decision, casting a girl "so ahead of her time" both in character and casting. Luke Evans looks to be the perfect Gaston, and the piercing blue eyes of Dan Stevens behind the rugged grandeur of the Beast teases his eagerly anticipated transformation. The visuals of the adaptation are dazzling, with costumes and sets matching everything each little boy and girl could have dreamed of when watching the iconic Disney fairy tale as a child. From the ferocious wolves, to the 'Be Our Guest' showstopper, to the grand ballroom and the dress that dreams are made of. It's safe to say that we simply cannot wait. "Ever just the same, ever a surprise" indeed. Beauty and the Beast is out in UK cinemas on 17th March.
