Disney has unveiled three new stills from the highly anticipated Beauty and The Beast remake, featuring Emma Watson in character as Belle.

These sneak peeks offer a glimpse of what promises to be a visually stunning and captivating retelling of the beloved fairy tale.

Much-anticipated: The movie is due for release in March, more than 15 years after the original

The release of the movie, long-awaited by fans, is scheduled for March, finally arriving over 15 years after its predecessor.

Persuasive: In a gorgeous flowing yellow ballgown, the 26-year-old British actress embodies the character of Belle flawlessly in the breathtaking new photo. With two more images that depict Belle cleaning a grand house and conversing with her father, portrayed by Kevin Kline, fans can’t wait to see the upcoming film. This first photo, released on Wednesday, captures Emma Watson in Belle’s iconic gold-yellow dress as she gracefully dances around a ballroom with the Beast, who wears a beautifully embroidered blue coat.

In action: And the remaining two snaps see Belle cleaning a grand house, and speaking to her father played by Kevin Kline

In the latest pictures from the upcoming Beauty and the Beast movie, we see Belle actively cleaning a lavish house and having a conversation with her father, portrayed by Kevin Kline. Emma Watson’s portrayal of Belle reflects her strong feminist beliefs. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, she shared her thoughts on the original animated movie and how they incorporated her character’s backstory. They added a unique detail to Belle’s life by making her an inventor who created a washing machine so that she could spend more time reading instead of doing laundry. This added depth to her character and gave her a strong sense of purpose beyond just being a book-loving outsider.

Modern take: Belle is an inventor and doesn't wear a corset in this version of the classic 

In the modern version of the classic story, Belle is portrayed as an inventor and does not wear a corset. The costume designer, Jacqueline Durran, revealed that the actress, Emma Watson, refused to wear a corset under her dress. According to Durran, “in Emma’s reinterpretation, Belle is an active princess. She did not want a dress that was corseted or that would impede her in any way.” Emma, who has been a fan of the original movie since childhood, shared that she knew all the words and songs by heart. The release of the first official image came after leaked pictures of Emma in character surfaced online. Disney had only offered a small teaser trailer prior to the official image reveal.

Just a glimpse: Until now, Disney has only offered a small glimpse of what's to come, including a teaser which shows just Emma's eyes as she reaches for the Enchanted Rose

Only a sneak peek: Disney has not yet revealed much about their upcoming project, with the exception of a teaser that only features Emma’s eyes as she attempts to grasp the Enchanted Rose.

As the door made a creaking sound, Emma’s voice could be heard softly saying ‘hello?’. She then reached out to The Enchanted rose. Certainly, Emma and Dan make an ideal match to portray Beauty and her Beast. A glimpse was given in September, featuring the two reciting their lines while sitting at a table.
