Disney has just released the first full-length trailer of the live-action movie "Beauty and the Beast," which set for release on March 17, 2017, is making a buzz in the web.
The film's first full-length trailer, which is shown below, gives a summary of the classic Disney fairy tale. It starts with the imprisonment of Belle's father, Maurice, and goes on to meet and fall in love with the Beast.
The film focuses on Belle, a young woman who is taken prisoner by a Beast in a castle, but despite her fears, she managed to recognize the true heart and soul of the human Prince within the Beast.
Directed by Bill Condon, "Beauty and the Beast" is a live-action remake of the 1991 animated musical tale. It was written by Stephen Chbosky and Evan Spiliotopoulos, and produced by Todd Lieberman and David Hoberman.
The film's enchanted castle features an ensemble cast, which includes Ian McKellen (Cogsworth), Ewan McGregor (Lumière ), Luke Evans (Gaston) and Emma Thompson (Mrs. Potts). The film also stars Stanley Tucci, Dan Stevens, Audra McDonald, and Gugu Mbatha.
In addition to the power cast, the film also features iconic music from the original cartoon, which was released in 1991.
While several images have been released in recent weeks, the film's first official teaser trailer came out on May 2016 in Good Morning America. According to reports, the teaser trailer reached a whopping 91.8 million views in its first 24 hours, topping the number of views seen in other hit Disney movies.
The live-action remake is anticipated to mirror the storyline of the classic Disney fairy tale, where a young girl and a monstrous prince have fallen in love.
The film's principal photography began at Shepperton Studios in London in May 2015 and ended on August 21. The "Beauty and the Beast" is set to be released on March 17, 2017, in standard, RealD 3D, Disney Digital and IMAX formats.
