Beauty and the Beast’s final trailer is full of Disney magic (and Ewan McGregor’s French accent)

Disney have released the final trailer for the upcoming Beauty and The Beast and it’s just as wondrous as you’d expect, giving us a fuller look at Lumiere, Cogsworth and the rest of the staff, plus a wounded Beast, and a glimpse at Belle’s pre-Beast life.

The trailer opens up with a chance to see Emma Watson as Belle in her tiny, picturesque village and gradually builds up to a grandstand conclusion with the song ‘A Tale As Old As Time’ sweeping through the trailer to give it a sprinkling of that that ol’ Disney magic.

So, what’s new in this trailer?

There’s a further look at the hijinks of the trapped Lumiere, Cogsworth and Mrs. Potts, voiced by Ewan McGregor (with a wonderfully hammy French accent), Sir Ian McKellen and Emma Thompson respectively, plus Dan Steven’s Beast getting a tiny bit irritated (that’s an understatement) at Belle gets close to the rose which would doom him to an eternity of being a Beast. 

Don’t worry though, Belle gets back in Beast’s good books (and that’s not including the thousands of books he has in his library) after tending to him following a wolf attack. It’s good to see everything isn’t going to be, umm, rosy in the movie.

Also, *that* dance scene is about as good as you’d expect from The House of Mouse: practically perfect in every way. Let’s just hope the trailer hasn’t spoiled too much of it. 

The full trailer is above but I’ll leave you with a Lumiere party because there ain’t no party like a Lumiere party ‘cos a Lumiere party never stops. 

Directed by Bill Condon and starring Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, and Ewan McGregor, Beauty and the Beast hits cinemas on March 17, 2017.
