Beauty and the Beast has always been one of my favorite fairy tales for so many reasons, and I know I'm not alone. I've always enjoyed Disney's animated version, and next year, Disney will be releasing a live action cinematic treatment of the tale starring Emma Watson. This morning, the breathtaking trailer for the film was released, featuring stunning visuals and effects.
From the trailer, we can see that some of the iconic scenes from the animated movie will be recaptured in this live action one. The trailer shows several of the characters audiences have loved (and loved to hate) for years now. Emma Watson seems perfect in her role as Beauty, and it will be interesting to see what her version of Beauty will be like. This new version doesn't seem like the sort who will take things lying down! Check her out with those wolves. I can't wait to see this princess in action, and we all will be able to in March 2017!
