Three things you didn’t notice in the new Beauty and the Beast trailer

It might be a tale as old as time, but there are certainly a few differences between the Beauty and the Beast film from 1991 and Emma Watson’s new version.
The first official trailer dropped this morning and it’s absolutely stunning. Bringing the animated classic to life is Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as Beast, as well as Ewan McGregor as Lumiere and Ian McKellen as Cogsworth. Yep, we already knew it was going to be amazing.
But if you didn’t watch the trailer carefully, you might have missed some key details…
1. While "Beauty and the Beast" (the song) played in the background of the trailer, we haven't heard any of the characters singing live yet (not even in "Be Our Guest"). Perhaps we’ll just have to wait until the film’s released before we hear them! Not only will the film use songs from the classic, but it will also include new songs by Alan Menken and Tim Rice.
2. Belle’s got a whole new wardrobe (well, sort of). When Entertainment Weekly first released their first look at the characters, the film’s costume designer revealed she wanted to put a more modern spin on Belle’s outfits. Belle no longer wears ballet flats and corsets, as Watson believed her to be an “active” princess. So now, she rocks boots throughout the flick, and the famous yellow gown will be corset-free.
3. Belle fully goes to jail! If you remember the original movie, she was never actually jailed but rather put into a bedroom. In the live action version she’s put into a cell at the top of a tower!
We don’t know about you, but now we’ve finally seen a full trailer we are even more excited about the film’s release!
We don’t have too much longer to wait – even though it feels like a lifetime – with the movie hitting cinemas March 2017.
