Would you like to set your gaze upon the new teaser poster for Beauty and the Beast? Well then by all means: Be our guest!
Emma Watson, who steps into the iconic role of Belle in Disney’s live-action remake of their 1991 animated classic, unveiled the first teaser poster via her Facebook page earlier today (July 7). The image prominently features the tale’s famed enchanted rose.
“Very excited to reveal the first teaser poster for Beauty and the Beast, exclusively for my Facebook fans,” Watson captioned the photo. “Hope you like! Love, Emma x #BeOurGuest.”
The poster comes just weeks after Disney unveiled the first teaser trailer, which gave fans a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it glimpse at Watson in character.
Joining Watson in this reboot of a tale old as time is Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) as the eponymous Beast, Ewan McGregor as Lumière, and Luke Evans (Fast 7) as Gaston in the film. Meanwhile, veteran actors Emma Thompson and Ian McKellen will be lending their
venerable thespian abilities to the film to the characters of Mrs. Potts and Cogsworth. Kevin Kline, Stanley Tucci, and Josh Gad round out the all-star cast as Maurice, LeFou, and Cadenza, respectively.
