The animated version of Disney’s Beauty And The Beast may have been your childhood, but get ready as the tale is set to be re-told in a live-action film that’s slated for release next year! The film features a star-studded cast with the beautiful and brilliant actress Emma Watson as Belle, Luke Evans as Gaston, and Dan Stevens of Downton Abbey fame as Beast, to name a few. The film is also set to feature brand new songs from eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice. The newly-released trailer keeps things simple and the detail minimal – we see almost none of the characters, only obtaining a clear view of the story’s enchanted rose – but it definitely succeeds in getting us excited. After all, a story like this needs no introduction.
