Video: There's precious little in the first actual footage from Disney's live-action version of Beauty and the Beast, but there's a glimpse of Emma Watson as Belle and some mightily familiar sets and music. Video: We also hear voices that sound like Cogsworth (Ian McKellan) and Lumiere (Ewan McGregor). Along with the reminder that this movie takes place in France, but only the candelabra has a French accent. Nothing hits you right in the nostalgia than a shot of that ballroom paired with the iconic music. The claws going through the family portrait promise a very faithful-to-the-cartoon adaptation.
