The new Beauty and the Beast trailer is just like the Disney original

It's here. A real and perfect full-length trailer for 2017's Beauty and the Beast is now available for your viewing pleasure. There are so many wonderful things about it, I think I might cry to be perfectly honest. If you're a fan of the 1991 Disney film (which served as the basis and impetus for this reboot), then you will be thoroughly pleased with what you see in this trailer. There are so many callbacks to the original film that it becomes pure nostalgia.

But before you start wistfully sighing and combing your cupboards for your Beauty and the Beast VHS tape so you can rewatch, just start with the trailer. I promise it's, like, the exact same vibe but without all the hassle of firing up your VCR.

It becomes evident pretty quickly that the 2017 reboot of the film is focused on preserving the magic of the original film while also making the world of Belle and the Beast even more vibrant, song-laden and magical than the original. Don't believe me? Here are some moments that prove it.
