The Beauty And The Beast trailer has dropped and people are crying over it

Updated: 

Emma Watson dazzles in the first official trailer for Disney's live action version of Beauty And The Beast, alongside Dan Stevens and Luke Evans.

The former Harry Potter star takes on the leading role of Belle in the film, a remake of the 1991 original, and fans are thrilled at this first real glimpse of what is in store.

Judging by the clip, the film will feel very similar to the first version in the way it both looks and sounds, thanks to the music being the classic soundtrack Disney fans know and love.

Belle is seen entering the Beast's castle and sacrifices herself for her father Maurice, played by Kevin Kline, but soon discovers the truth behind her captor's demeanour.

There is also a look at beloved characters Lumiere, Cogsworth and Mrs Potts - voiced by Ewan McGregor, Sir Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson respectively - and Luke Evans' Gaston as he tries to get the townsfolk to ambush the castle.

The animated film's most iconic scene, in which the two leading stars waltz around the castle's impressive dance floor, with Belle in THAT yellow ballgown, is also recreated and seen in the trailer.

However, while we see former Downton Abbey star Dan in Beast mode, we have yet to see him as the prince he really is.

Fans of all things Beauty, Beasts, Emma and Dan are going wild on social media for the clip, with many of them actually crying.

Beauty And The Beast is directed by Bill Condon and is set for release in March 2017. It marks the latest of Disney's live-action remakes, following Cinderella, The Jungle Book and Alice in Wonderland.
