It's a "tale as old as time" and it's getting revamped for a whole new generation. Feast your eyes on the very first trailer for the forthcoming live-action adaptation of Disney's 1991 Oscar-winning animated classic "Beauty and the Beast," featuring "Harry Potter" star Emma Watson as Belle and Downton Abbey's Dan Stevens as the Beast.

"Dreamgirls" director Bill Condon helms this musical, fairy-tale love story, which also stars Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, the feather duster; Tony-winning vocalist/actress Audra McDonald as Garderobe, the wardrobe, and Oscar-winner Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, the teapot.

Also rounding out the cast are Oscar-winner Kevin Kline as Belle's endearing father, Maurice; Luke Evans as Belle's overly arrogant suitor, Gaston, and Josh Gad as Gaston's punching bag of a sidekick, Lefou.

Featuring new recordings of the original songs by Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken and Oscar-winning lyricist Howard Ashman -- as well as several new songs by Menken and Oscar-winning "The Lion King" lyricist Tim Rice, "Beauty and the Beast" is currently scheduled to hit theaters on March 17, 2017.

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.
