Beauty and the Beast comes to theaters on March 17, 2017. The film is a "re-telling" of the animated classic. It's tailored for a "contemporary audience," but also promises to stay true to the original music, while adding some new tunes as well.

Watson plays Belle, while Dan Stevens portrays the Beast. Luke Evans takes on the role of Gaston, while Kevin Kline plays Belle's father, Maurice. Josh Gad plays Lefou and Ewan McGregor portrays Lumiere. Ian McKellen plays Cogsworth.

The movie is directed by Bill Condon, who was behind the camera for the final two Twilight movies.
