Tonight the Golden Globes are happening to celebrate the past year of cinema. However, Hollywood never stops and as such, we got the first look and one of 2017's first big movies of the year during a commercial break. The commercial spot for Beauty and the Beast gave us a look at some new footage, but beyond that, what's most important is what we got to hear. Check out Emma Watson singing the reprise of the song named for her character, "Belle."
There's a bit of slightly varied visuals here but the key to the new ad spot for Beauty and the Beast is not what you see, it's what you hear. From the moment that we realized that the live-action version of Beauty and the Beast would follow it's animated predecessor and be a musical, the question became, how would it sound? We now have our first real opportunity to listen. Emma Watson sings the reprise to the song Belle, the part of the film where a young girl laments that the small town she lives in leaves her with no opportunity to live the life she dreams of. Little does she know what's in store for her.
It's far from the film's biggest song and dance number, but it doesn't sound any less fantastic. It sounds enough like the version we all know from the animated feature film that it should appease those who might be afraid the movie is going to be too different, but at the same time, it's got its own feel, meaning that Beauty and the Beast isn't going to be an exact remake either.
"Belle" is the first song we hear in Beauty and the Beast. The main version of the song is sung by other characters as they gossip about the girl named Belle who just doesn't fit in with the rest of the village. Later on, after Belle has dismissed Gaston for the first time, she sings her own version of the song about all the things she dreams about.
There are many more songs that we'd love to hear, but we're guessing that Disney is going to keep as much under wraps as they possibly can before Beauty and the Beast hits screens in March. We're assuming that "Be Our Guest" will be the film's showstopping number, but the movie has several great musical moments, like Gaston's song, and of course the Oscar-winning title track, that are also fantastic pieces of music. We can't wait to hear them all.
