Our favourite bookish-peasant-turned-princess will soon be gracing the big screen once again. Harry Potter star Emma Watson will star in Disney's live-action take on Beauty and the Beast as Belle, while Dan Stevens will play the Beast and Luke Evans will play Gaston. The official trailer is making us so excited for the movie's premiere on March 23, 2017. The fairy tale has come a long way from its 18th-century French origins. Let's look at the evolution of the fairy tale in pop culture, from classic books to the latest film and TV interpretations!
