The new trailer for Disney's brand new live-action version of Beauty and the Beast aired during the 2017 Golden Globe Awards last night, and everyone's initial reaction is how stellar of a voice Emma Watson has in the 30-second commercial. Now despite the fact that we heard a tiny clip of her performing "Something There" from the Princess Belle doll footage that swept the internet recently, this trailer is technically the first official debut of Emma performing as Belle. Regardless of whether or not you already heard snippets, this new TV spot is guaranteed to give you major chills. No seriously, prepare to be utterly blown away by her insanely strong pipes.
In the trailer, Belle appears on top of a grassy hill while belting out a beautiful rendition of the infamous intro song "Belle." The image gives us major The Sound of Music vibes, tbh.
We also get a sneak peek of Chip, and he's lookin' as cute as ever. We just love how this remake is going to open our eyes to a totally new side of the 1991 animated Disney classic that we all know and love.
Aside from the short snippet that will now be airing on television, Disney also introduced a brand new poster for the film.

In the poster, we finally get to see the human versions of all the previously-animated characters we adore. We have Ewan McGregor starring as French Lumiere, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, Audra McDonald as Gaderobe and Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette. So cool!
Oh how we just cannot wait for this movie to finally come out. March 17 seriously cannot come soon enough!
