Ahead of the movie's debut in less than two weeks, Disney has released a new clip from their upcoming live-action remake of their animated film Beauty and the Beast.
The new clip was released during the premiere episode of the House of Mouse's brand-new talk show series The Oh My Disney Show and features a hilarious and literally "smashing" first meeting between Belle, Lumière and Cogsworth in the Beast's dungeon (where Belle has been incarcerated). Skip to approximately the 1:00 mark to preview the fun little scene.
Directed by Mr. Holmes' Bill Condon from a screenplay by Evan Spiliotopoulos (The Huntsman: Winter’s War) and Stephen Chbosky (The Perks of Being a Wallflower), this new spin on Disney's tale as old as time stars Emma Watson as Belle, Dan Stevens as the Beast, Kevin Kline as Belle's father Maurice, Luke Evans as Gaston, Josh Gad as Le Fou, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, Ewan McGregor as Lumière, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette and Nathan Mack as Chip.
Disney's Beauty and the Beast is a live-action re-telling of the studio's animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. Beauty and the Beast is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle's enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast's hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.
Beauty and the Beast opens on March 17.
