The remake also includes Ewan McGregor as the voice of Lumière, Sir Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts and Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette. The first teaser trailer was released back in May and gave fans a teensy glimpse at Watson as Belle.
The “Harry Potter” alum also told EW how excited she was about being a part of the film saying, “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” arrives in theaters on March 17, 2017.
