In case you missed it, the Oscars were last night. It’s a prime time to advertise upcoming movie releases, and Disney used the opportunity to promote the highly anticipated live-action Beauty and the Beast. This new TV spot features a better look at Lumiere (played by Ewan McGregor) performing his show stopping number, “Be Our Guest.”
Excited yet? Film industry analysts are anticipating a debut weekend of over $100 million for Beauty and the Beast, so you’re not the only one.
And just in case you’ve slept through the last few decades, here’s the plot of the film via Disney:
Disney’s “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. “Beauty and the Beast” is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.
Beauty and the Beast opens nationwide on March 17, 2017. It stars Emma Watson (Harry Potter) as Belle and Dan Stevens (Legion, Downton Abbey) as The Beast.
