We Spotted 11 Nostalgic Callbacks in the New Beauty and the Beast Trailer
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.
1. When Belle is reading
Belle is still a bookworm, to which I say, "Rock on, sister."
2. When she brushes off Gaston
It looks like Gaston is still a pompous jerk and Belle is still not falling for it. Yes, girl, you show him.
3. When Maurice gets caught by the Beast
It looks like the latest interpretation of Maurice's fateful meeting with his future son-in-law is just as scary as the first time we saw it in 1991.
4. When Belle meets Cogsworth and Lumière
Talk about an adorable meet cute.

This new rendition looks even more vibrant and vivacious than the original, and that's saying something.
10. When Belle and the Beast dance in the ballroom
I mean, of course they left in the most iconic scene of the original film.

My heart can't handle the drama of that leap onto the turret, y'all.
