Yesterday all of us were basically taken by surprise as Disney released the first full trailer for the upcoming Beauty and the Beast film. A story about Stockholm Syndrome, as some might argue, but still one of the best Disney classics around. Plus Belle is one of the best princesses because she is super clever and awesome (just not as awesome as Megara. #Justice4Megara). Starring Emma Watson, the only one who managed to bag good leading roles after Harry Potter, this is probably one of the highlights of 2017 and I’m already beyond excited. I once again did a trailer reaction. Enjoy!
Beauty & The Beast first trailer rundown
*Cue piano tunes* Oh be still my heart. Disney, I don’t think I am ready for this, but you are going to do this to me anyway, aren’t you? Fine. I will have my tissues ready.
Sad Beast needs a hug. A massive hug. How can you not love the Beast? If he just got a little more love, all of this would not have happened.
Now it is not very nice to treat a portrait of your family like this. Even when you are super emo.
This is Belle’s father. Belle’s father is totally okay with trespassing and stealing a rose from another person’s garden. Don’t be Belle’s father.
‘Cause this may happen to you.
Belle is also quite a fan of trespassing. I thought this was only acceptable in Pokémon games? Anyway, the door was open so she is just going to let herself in, ok. She is just looking for her popaw.
“Belle! The castle is alive!” Well, technically the castle isn’t but the things inside are. Which should be incredibly interesting for someone who is an inventor, but hey, what do I know?
“Come into the light!” Belle demands.
And as Beast is a good boy, he does. Because of course he would listen to the demands of someone who entered his castle without permission.
“Holy fuck,” Belle muttered under her breath, emphasising that looks do matter when you first meet someone.
Beast instantly has self-esteem issues.
“Show me the girl,” Beast says to his fancy ass mirror and it shows depressed Belle. Beast realises that to love someone, you have to let them go because Stockholm Syndrome is not for everyone.
“What if she is the one?” Lumiere asks, hoping Belle is into bestiality because life as a candleholder just isn’t all that.
Que cute merchandise opportunities!
“The master is not as bad as he seems.” No, he only robbed you of your freedom in the hope that you could turn him back into a human but you’re not allowed to know that so he will try to seduce you as best as he can which is not that good actually. But you should see his party tricks during Christmases.
Jacob from Twilight was tired of looking at sparkly vampires, so him and his crew decided to audition for an actually decent film and they got the job!
Me in the morning when I wake up and look into the mirror. Cue morning breath!
Aww it’s the rose. I feel all kinds of romantic feelings right now. I might be a cold hearted bitch but deep inside shots like these make me melt.
“Let’s kill the beast!” No, let’s whoop your ass. God, I hate Gaston. I already want to punch him in the face.
Okay so to all of you who said Emma Watson is not pretty enough to play Belle. Look at her face. She is the embodiment of Belle. No one is more perfect. *Fan girl mode on*.
I too wish to have a personal library this big but I am struggling to convince my boyfriend to even let me have a shelf. How do you do it Belle?
The yellow dress! The ballroom! My heart!
Goddamit, can they not cut this asshole from the film?
Seriously, he’s appeared in this trailer for three seconds and I’m already annoyed. Someone should also stop the bulge in his pants.
THE BLUE DRESS! Aww maybe they will stick to the original material!
I would like to say that when I watched the original film, I shouted NOOO many times during this part too. It gave me many feelings, most of which involved kicking Gaston in the groin.
Such an iconic shot. Remember when Emma was ten and we all thought she was super cute and now she is fully grown and I feel like a proud mother even though she is older than me? Yes, I am also very confused.
And another petal falls…as do my tears.
I have a feeling that this film is going to be stunning and if the live action version of The Jungle Book is anything to go by, it should be. So much detail. So many feelings. Is it March 2017 yet?
