When “Beauty and the Beast” arrives in theaters this March, Disney hopes you’ll be their guest. A new extended TV spot for the film invites viewers into the Beast’s enchanted castle, where a curse has transformed a prince into a monster and all of his staff into inanimate objects — which exactly how Emma Watson’s Belle finds it when she goes in search of her missing father.
Based on the blockbuster 1991 animated classic, the film follows Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who’s 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.
Directed by Bill Condon, the film also stars Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who tries to woo Belle; Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, the feather duster; Audra McDonald as Madame Garderobe, the wardrobe; Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.
Boasting a score by Alan Menken, with new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and Howard Ashman, as well as new songs by Menken and Tim Rice, “Beauty and the Beast” opens March 17, 2017.
