This new teaser for 'Beauty And The Beast' proves that Emma Watson was born to play Belle

Alright, keep calm Disney fans.

Excitement has been steadily mounting ever since it was announced last year that Emma Watson was to play Belle in a new live action version of Beauty And The Beast.

Over the last few weeks, BATB-heads have been spoiled - and tortured - by a slow drip-feed of leaked information and images about the production.

Last week, producer Jack Morrissey shared this image on Facebook of the concept art for the characters of Lumière (to be played here by Ewan McGregor) and Cogsworth (Ian McKellen).

"These designs are close but may not be final... ;D," he teased.

Morrissey also shared an image of actor Luke Evans - who plays Gaston - rehearsing the song and dance for his famous title number from the movie.

You can also just about make out more character concept art in the background.

The movie's producer has given us a look at British actor Dan Stevens, who plays the Beast, too.

We've also had Ian McKellen's wonderful description of the cast's first table read in April.

"...my favourite moment, because it made me weepy, was when the Beast’s loving arm was placed tentatively on Belle’s shoulder after their pas de deux. Clearly dancing and singing rehearsals had started before today.

"My own are to come. I’m going to have to work hard to equal what has already been achieved. All the long way home, I hummed 'Be Our Guest', in which I shall get to sing a line or two. Aren’t I the lucky one?"

AND there's this amazing cast selfie.

AND Emma Watson has shown us the first poster for the movie.

AGH!

Last night, Disney released a teaser clip of the cast's first in-character table read - which in itself is a teaser for a longer trailer that will be launched on September 6.

In the clip, we hear Emma Watson and Stevens read their lines aloud.

But why have us describe it when you can watch it for yourself below? Please, be our guest.
