‘Beauty and the Beast’ motion posters debut on YouTube

The highly anticipated Beauty and the Beast re-telling brings one of Disney’s most-loved masterpieces back to the big screen this year. Belle (Emma Watson) and Beast (Dan Stevens) have already been revealed, and now we’re getting a look at them and other key characters in a series of static and animated posters. 

Not only is Beast shown as his true human form, but Gaston (Luke Evans), Le Fou (Josh Gad), Maurice (Kevin Kline), Mrs. Potts (Emma Thompson), Lumiere (Ewan McGregor), Cogsworth (Ian McKellen), Maestro Cadenza (Stanley Tucci), Garderobe (Audra McDonald), and Plumette (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) have their breakout appearances.

A playlist of short live-action motion posters were also added to Disney Movie Trailer’s YouTube channel, featuring 11 characters from the film. Watson looks angelic, while Beast looks a little too animated for our liking. Check out Gaston and the rest of the gang below:

A new Beauty and the Beast trailer is set to launch Jan. 30, while the film will hit theaters March 17.
