Disney’s Beauty and the Beast isn’t due to hit cinemas until next month, although it feels as if we’ve seen quite a lot of the film already by this point. For example, we know what the Beast (Dan Stevens) looks like in his human form – and we’ve seen that magical moment when he and Belle (Emma Watson) realise that there’s “something there that wasn’t there before” to their relationship.
You know the one; it begins with a chorus of “bonjours”, sees Belle rush to return a book she’s borrowed, and ends with the townspeople shadily critiquing everything about her.
While the live-action version of the classic fairy-tale has made it very clear that they’ve given Belle a feminist makeover (complete with her own career and corset-free gowns), this new clip has given us a closer, more intimate look at her character.
And it’s safe to say that everything we loved about the original Belle – her curiosity, her thirst for adventure, her overwhelming politeness in the face of serious rudeness – has remained the same.
Check out the moment (and Watson’s singing voice) in the video below:
It’s every bit as catchy as we remember.
Despite the fact that the tune trails off before the big finale, a huge number of fans have taken to social media to praise Watson’s rendition of the iconic song.
The talented young actor – who took several weeks of singing lessons before beginning work on Beauty and the Beast – has chosen not to copy Paige O’Hara’s version of the tune.
Instead, she has added her own sweet, spoken-style twist to the lyrics, which has been dubbed by Twitter users as “perfect” for her character.
However, while many have praised Watson’s vocals, the 26-year-old told Total Film magazine that she found singing on screen to be incredibly challenging.
“I sing, so that’s really unexpected,” she said. “I’ve never had to do that for a film role before, and I think people will be interested to see me do something very different like that.
"It gives me a different challenge, really. That’s terrifying in and of itself!”
Beauty and the Beast hits cinemas 17 March 2017.
