Disney has just released a new trailer for the Bill Condon-directed live acton musical, Beauty and the Beast, which stars Emma Watson as Belle, Dan Stevens as the Beast, Luke Evans as Gaston, and Josh Gad as Le Fou with Ewan McGregor, Emma Thompson, and Ian McKellen voicing Lumiere, Ms Pots and Cogsworth.

The trailer, which debuted during Monday night’s episode of The Bachelor on ABC, begins with Kevin Kline, who plays her father, Maurice, saying, “My dear Belle, you are so ahead of your time. This is a small village. And it’s small-minded as well. But small also means safe.” We see a young Belle reading books in her village and the epitome of vanity himself, Gaston, complimenting himself in the mirror, dancing on a table in the tavern, and rallying a torch-carrying mob to kill the beast.

The trailer hits all the notes of nostalgia as we get to see Belle wearing her iconic yellow ballgown as she dances with the Beast to Ariana Grande and John Legend’s duet of “Beauty and the Beast.” Also featured are the castle’s enchanted residents, who welcome Belle after she takes her father’s place as the Beast’s captive.

See he final trailer for Beauty and the Beast below before it arrives in theaters on March 17.
