Disney has revealed the first official trailer for Beauty and the Beast, and it looks every bit as stunning as we expected. Director Bill Condon was interviewed at the Disney blog, saying: “For me, it felt like a great responsibility to take that wonderful film, and kind of translate it into a different media. You know, the fact that it’s real and three-dimensional. It’s a very intriguing, challenging daily process to make sure you’re being true to what you loved, and what I loved, and what everybody else loved, to hopefully kind of expand on it, and give people something to connect to it.”

Condon concluded the interview with a message for fans “I want fans to know that everyone who worked on this movie loves the original as much as you do.”
