The animation has been keeping children entertained for more than 20 years and producers will be hoping the new version has the same effect.

The movie promises to retain the magic of Disney's original and will include the songs and music which helped make the film such a success.

Emma Watson previously revealed that it was the musical elements of the movie that were proving the biggest challenge.

"I sing, so that's really unexpected," she told Total Film in 2015.

"I've never had to do that for a film role before, and I think people will be interested to see me do something very different like that.

"It gives me a different challenge, really. That's terrifying in and of itself!"

Beauty And The Beast is due to hit cinema screens on 17 March 2017.
