Today Disney released a preview track of Emma Watson singing "Something There" from their upcoming live-action musical, "Beauty and the Beast." "Something There" was first sung by Paige O'Hara in the animated "Beauty in the Beast" in 1991.
The song marks the moment that Belle begins to notice that there is "Something" more to the Beast than she once thought. While the original film's sweeping theme song can be heard in the trailer, audiences have yet to hear Watson herself sing, until now.

"New and a bit alarming, who'd have ever thought that this could be. True, that he's no Prince Charming, but there's something in him that I simply didn't see."
This song was written by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken, whose original work will be featured in the new film. EW is also reporting that Menken has written three new songs for the film, "For Evermore," "Our Song Lives On," and "Days of the Sun."
Directed by Bill Condon, the film also stars Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos 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.
"Beauty and the Beast" arrives in theaters March 17, 2017.
