First Trailer for Beauty and the Beast

Proper Disney movies have never really been meant for me. I saw all the old animated movies, but they were never the pinnacle of my childhood. I reserved that for superheroes. But Beauty and the Beast was always an interesting story. I remember all the main beats of the animated film, and it is truly a classic story. So when I heard that it was among the films being remade in live action by Disney, I thought it had a lot of potential. You could make a really compelling film with today's technology. Plus, Disney just hit it out of the park with The Jungle Book (read our review here), so I'm game for anything they put out. So when I saw the first teaser trailer for the new Beauty and Beast was online, I was excited to see it.

This is very clearly a teaser trailer. We get practically nothing from this trailer. But still I liked it. We got a sweeping look at the mansion, with beautiful music playing in the background. We got to briefly hear Ewan McGregor and Ian McKellen as Lumiere and Cogsworth respectively, as well as a quick shot of Emma Watson as Belle. I was hoping to see the design of the Beast at the end, but I'm not surprised that their holding off on that. It may not even be fully rendered yet. Did we got a lot of the story? No, but we didn't need to because everyone already knows the story. This just gave us a feeling of the tone, and it brought me right back to the animated film. I think this movie has a very impressive cast, and has a lot of potential to be something really special.
