Kicking off their global press tour in the spectacular city of Paris earlier this week, the filmmakers and cast of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast assembled for a cheery group shot with the City of Lights spread out below.

Director Bill Condon and composer Alan Menken joined the fantasy film's main cast of Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Josh Gad and Luke Evans to begin a spirited publicity campaign in the country that created the 18th-century fairy tale their live-action movie is based upon.

Disney also answered our silent wishes and gifted us a fresh clip of Belle wishing townsfolk a "good morning" while singing one of the movie's opening numbers heard in the original 1991 animated adaptation. Have a listen and tell us if Emma Watson wasn't the perfect choice for this role! I double dare you.

Beauty and the Beast opens March 17.
