Damn, Kids. Welcome to the Beauty and the Beast’s official GET HYPE trailer. This is the last one to drop before the premiere in March, and it’s nearly impossible to sit through. That is because it is a thrilling, in-your-face hit parade of everything from your childhood this movie is going to make awesome again.
While the first trailer focused more on showing audiences what kind of story this would be, gently introducing us to the new, IRL look of our favorite characters and settings. This trailer is 100% pure, unadulterated fan-service. Nearly every line spoken is lifted from the original, especially at 00:47:
Then some lady starts in with, “Tale as old as time…” and all bets are OFF. The whole thing crescendos into a spectacular montage that gives us breathtaking new glimpses of “Be our Guest,” “Gaston,” and, of course, “Beauty and the Beast.”
This film will be nothing if not an incredibly lavish homage to one of Disney’s most acclaimed classics. If you aren’t waltzing with the nearest bathrobe by the end of it, you may actually be made of stone.

Beauty and the Beast premieres March 17th.
