Surprise! It seems that her adventures as Hermione Granger have inspired one Emma Watson fan to remake the Beauty And The Beast trailer into a Harry Potter spoof

Surprise! It seems that her adventures as Hermione Granger have inspired one Emma Watson fan to remake the Beauty And The Beast trailer into a Harry Potter spoof

Take a look at the newly released character motion posters from Disney's live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, that opens in USA theaters nationwide on March 17, 2017.

"Beauty and the Beast" was written by lyricist Howard Ashman and composer Alan Menken. It would go on to win best original song at the Golden Globes and Oscars.

Beauty and the Beast is the latest live-action adaptation of Disney's back catalogue; Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland grossed a whopping $1.025 billion back in 2010, while Jon Favreau's The Jungle book earned $966.6 million previous year. Is the classic best, or do Grande and Legend add some much-needed freshness to the song?

Emma Thompson will sing "Beauty and the Beast" as Mrs. Potts in the new movie. Menken is responsible for the bulk of the film's soundtrack, and has returned to work on this hugely exciting remake having also been acknowledged for his work on the likes of "The Little Mermaid", "Aladdin" and "Pocahontas".

Bill Condon directed the adaptation, which also stars Emma Watson as Belle, Dan Stevens as the Beast, Ewan McGregor as Lumière, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, Stanley Tucci as Cadenza, Kevin Kline as Maurice, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, and Audra McDonald as Madame de Garderobe.
