Emma Watson shares first look at Beauty And The Beast


The first trailer for Emma Watson's eagerly anticipated Beauty And The Beast film has premiered online.

The sneak peek was released on Twitter and Emma - who plays Belle in the Disney live action movie - also shared it on Facebook.

Belle is only seen briefly in the clip, entering the castle and discovering the rose under the glass.

Directed by Bill Condon, the movie stars Dan Stevens as the Beast, Luke Evans as Gaston, Josh Gad as LeFou and Kevin Kline as Maurice.

Emma Thompson, Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellen and Stanley Tucci are also among the cast.

Harry Potter star Emma, 26, confirmed last year that she was taking the starring role in the movie.

She said in a Facebook message that she was a huge fan of the tale while growing up and that her "six-year-old self is on the ceiling".

She added: "Time to start some singing lessons!"

Beauty And The Beast will be released in cinemas on March 17, 2017.
