If you missed the 2017 Golden Globes on NBC tonight, then you didn’t get to see the new trailer for “Beauty and the Beast,” which features more singing from star Emma Watson. Disney released the trailer as a preview for the film during the popular televised event, but the studio also posted the trailer online for everyone to enjoy. The film will hit theaters in a few months, but we expect this won’t the final trailer for the film.
This is the second official-trailer for the film, but a few musical teasers and previous teaser-trailers have found their way online as well. This new “Beauty and the Beast” will be the first live-action adaptation of the Disney fairy-tale, which tells the story of a monstrous prince and a young woman who fall in love. As we reported earlier, Disney has 13 live-action films in development. The studio has only spoke briefly about hits like “Mulan,” “Dumbo,” and “Cruella,” but other hits like “Winnie the Pooh” and “Peter Pan” are also in the works.
The original “Beauty and the Beast” opened in November back in 1991, the film went on to make over $218.9M domestically, and $206M in foreign markets. Just a fun-fact, when the animated-film opened wide back in 1991, it did not hit number-one overall on the domestic-charts. That honor went to “The Addams Family,” which crushed the Disney classic by making $24.2M over its opening weekend, and “Cape Fear” came in at number-two with $10M. “Beauty and the Beast” did come in at number-three, scoring $9.6M for the studio. Although it missed number-one, “Beauty and the Beast” has become one of the most iconic Disney tales of all time, and was nominated for ‘Best Picture’ by the Academy Awards. Fans should be excited to see this new adaptation hit the big-screen, considering the gigantic cast that has lined-up for the project.
This new “Beauty and the Beast” was directed by Bill Condon, who was the first to share the clip on social-media earlier today. The clip was later shared on YouTube, and you can listen to the audio-tease below, or on YouTube. Evan Spiliotopoulos and Stephen Chbosky wrote the screenplay to the adaptation, the film will star Emma Watson, Ewan McGregor, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Josh Gad, Ian McKellen, Stanley Tucci and Kevin Kline.
Disney fans can mark ”Beauty and the Beast” day as March 17, 2017, that’s when the film will release in local cinemas across the country.
