Washington D.C. [USA], Nov. 11 (ANI): The first official poster for the live-action remake of 'Beauty and the Beast' is here.

Emma Watson, who plays Belle in the flick, took to her Facebook page to show "the new teaser poster" by posting a picture that features Belle and the Beast (played by Dan Stevens) dancing in a spotlight filled with purple and blue hues.

"So happy I get to show all of you the new teaser poster for Beauty and the Beast," she wrote on the wall, "You are the very first people to see this! I hope you like it. Love, Emma x."

The poster seems to encapsulate all the magical feelings the movie brings its viewers.

The new teaser comes just a few days after Disney released an abundance of movie stills from the film.

Of her character, Watson describes that she is "very practical" as she knew "these little ballet shoes" she wore in the first movie "had to go."

"If you're going to ride your horse and tend your garden and fix machinery, then you need to be in proper boots," she recently told Entertainment Weekly.

Directed by Bill Condon, the live-action remake also features several other big stars, including Luke Evans as Gaston, Josh Gadd as Le Fou, Kevin Kline as Maurice, Adrian Schiller as Monsieur D'Arque, Hattie Morahan as Agathe the Enchantress, Henry Garrett as the King and Harriet Jones as the Queen.

'Beauty and the Beast' is slated to release initially in US on March 17, 2017. (ANI)
