The new Beauty & The Beast trailer will make you so, so happy

Basically, it's going to be amazing.

Beauty and the Beast fans have had a LOT to get excited about recently as Disney have released several tasty snippets to whet our appetites for the new live action Beauty and the Beast remake.

First up, Disney have kindly released the brand new trailer for the Beauty and the Beast remake and it is just everything we could have hoped for. Prepare for some serious Chip love…

Emma Watson and Dan Stevens have also given us an insight as to what to expect when they play the characters of Beauty and The Beast at an open round table reading of the upcoming script.

As well as the two main characters, the video also shows Ewan McGregor and Ian McKellan reading their roles of Lumière and Cogsworth, the loveable magical candelabra and clock.

Disney have released an illustration of the all-new Belle looking, well, a lot trendier than she did in the original. The main difference you’ll notice is that those little brown ballet pump slippers are gone and have been replaced with a pair of far studier (and far more hipster) ankle boots.

Also gone is the pristine white apron, which has been replaced with a grubbier blue check apron, and the basket has been dropped too. Now Belle sports a few tea towels casually tucked into her apron – much more practical.

You also can’t fail to notice that Belle’s hairstyle as also changed. Gone is the pretty, blue-ribboned ponytail in preference for a looser, messier style that makes her look a lot more realistic – and more modern. Well, the original was 25 years ago after all…belle-sketch

Still think the thought of remaking the original Disney is sacrilege? Don’t worry – there’s something for you too now that this latest gem has been released. This new clip of the recording sessions for the animated film shows you all the original characters, including Gaston, Belle, Lumière, Chip and, of course, Angela Lansbury as Mrs. Potts.

Get ready for the perfect bit of nostalgia to help get you through the day…

Some behind-the-scenes pictures have also been released, so you can finally get a first look at Luke Evans as Gaston and Dan Stevens’ epic transformation into The Beast. The pics also reveal Josh Gad as Le Fou and Emma Watson as Belle, in that iconic yellow dress:
