Yes, it has finally arrived. But you might have missed one very important thing from the live action trailer...
We aren’t ashamed to admit that, when we saw that the full length trailer for Beauty And The Beast had been released, we lost our ish a little bit. Okay, a lot.
It was every bit as magical as we’d dreamed it would be. Catching a proper glimpse at Emma Watson’s Belle, hearing Beast’s deep and powerful voice for the first time, and finally meeting an animated Chip the tea cup. Yup. It was 1.59 minutes of pure joy.
Well, except for when Gaston appeared. Because, gorgeous and as much of a darl’ as Luke Evans is, we just can’t get past the ickiness of the character.
Ever since its release, the video has been doing the rounds on the internet, trending pretty much across all forms of social media.
But we’re willing to bet that there’s one big thing you probably didn’t spot when watching it. Even after the eleventh or twelfth viewing (guilty).
The folks over at MoviePilot.com have done a fine job of pointing it out. That is, that the live action movie trailer actually pays homage to the original Disney classic.
In fact, it pretty much mirrors it scene for scene.
The new Beauty and the Beast trailer shot for shot with the original movie!
Just when we thought that we couldn’t get any more excited for March 17th (which, by the way, is the release date, so you might want to pencil it in. Or, you know, set an alarm.) something else came along and proved us wrong.
We have all of the feels right now.
