This video proves that the “Beauty and the Beast” trailer is EXACTLY the same as the 1991 film version and our minds are blown

When we first saw the Beauty and the Beast trailer, there were a couple of things going through out minds. Firstly, we were just like “OH MY GOSH THIS LOOKS AMAZING.” Secondly, we felt a twinge of recognition. That’s because the new Beauty And The Beast trailer is exactly the same as the 1991 film’s one.

Given that Beauty and the Beast seems to be breaking records left, right, and center already, it’s safe to say that people are pretty excited about this film’s release.  Likewise, we’re super pumped to see the changes that Emma Watson has helped instigate with the character of Belle, and to witness what differences Watson will bring to the role.

However, it seems that with the latest trailer, Disney are also paying homage to the 1991 animated version of the much loved tale.

As Movie Pilot point out in their incredible Facebook video, there are LOADS of similarities between the trailer for the 1991 animated movie and the new live-action Beauty and the Beast. In fact, the trailer is basically a shot-for-shot remake of the 1991 one and our minds our blown!


Given how well loved the original Beauty and the Beast is, we think it’s amazing to see how those involved with making the live-action version have paid tribute to the film. We love all the subtle details, too, like the exploding carts and the petal falling at the end. It’s so wonderful.

Of course, there *some* differences between the two trailers.

For example, Belle’s beautiful green dress in the original trailer has been replaced, and some of the colors are different when it comes to the Beast’s castle. However, we have to say that things *do* look pretty similar.

We guess we’re going to have to wait until the film is released on March 17th, 2017, to find out exactly how similar or different things are. We can’t wait!
