The trailer for 'Beauty and the Beast' remake has been released

It's been 15 years since Disney's animated classic Beauty and the Beast hit cinemas and now, the studio's live-action version has a trailer.

Emma Watson stars as Belle alongside Downton Abbey's Dan Stevens as the Beast.

With Twilight's Bill Condon directing, the new film appears lush and grand, retelling the tale of the Beast capturing Belle's father and forcing her to agree to stay with him, in exchange for her father's freedom.

The two start to fall for each other, the townspeople are unhappy - riots and true love miracles ensue.

Also starring are Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Emma Thompson, Sir Ian McKellen, Luke Evans, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Kevin Kline and Josh Gad.

Beauty and the Beast will be released in March, 2017.
