Emma Watson shows off her singing pipes in a new "Beauty and the Beast" TV spot, which just premiered during Sunday Night's Golden Globes telecast.
The upcoming musical is the live-action adaptation of Disney's classic 1991 animated movie, which tells the tender story of a young woman, named Belle (Watson), who becomes the voluntary prisoner of a terrifying beast (played by Downton Abbey's Dan Stevens), who would later reveal himself as a prince suffering from an evil spell.
Also starring Luke Evans, Josh Gad, and Kevin Kline, with voice performances by Emma Thompson, Ian McKellen, and Ewan McGregor, the film is directed by "Dreamgirls" helmer Bill Condon. It's currently slated for a March 17 release.
Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" is a live-action re-telling of the studio's animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. "Beauty and the Beast" is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle's enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast's hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.
