The movie won’t be released until March 17, but in the meantime fans are swooning over the new trailer for Disney’s live-action version of the beloved 1991 “Beauty and the Beast” story. It’s the second trailer for the movie.

The first one came out in May — production on the film began in 2014 — but it only showed the castle and a tiny bit of Emma Watson as Belle.

Still, interest was high, judging from the fact it was viewed a record 91.8 million times in its first 24 hours, according to It beat out “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” (88 million views), “Captain America: Civil War” (61 million views), and “Avengers: Age of Ultron” (55 million views).

This new trailer, released today, almost spoils the fun as it shows the Beast, Gaston, Lumière, and even a glimpse of Belle swirling in her yellow ballgown.

Directed by Bill Condon, the film stars Kevin Kline as Maurice, Dan Stevens as the Beast (who had to act on stilts for most of the time, according to, Josh Gad as LeFou, and Luke Evans as Gaston.

The film features a star-studded voice cast, too, with Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, Ewan McGregor as Lumière, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, Stanley Tucci as Cadenza, Audra McDonald as the Wardrobe, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Babette — and Nathan Mack as Chip Potts.

Watson was likely speaking for a lot of fans who grew up with the film when she told EW: “I can’t even think how many times I watched it as a child … I knew all the words by heart. I knew all the songs by heart.”

“Beauty and the Beast” was the first animated movie to get an Oscar Best Picture nomination. Ultimately it lost to “Silence of the Lambs,” but a Broadway version of the show ran for 13 years. It’s perfect timing now for a new film version to arrive.
