Fans still have to wait until next spring before they can finally watch the live-action version of "Beauty and the Beast" on the big screen, but today we are getting a glimpse of Disney's new take on the "tale as old as time."

The first full-length trailer is here!

The clip reveals a series of scenes faithful to 1991 animated feature — from images of the dark and dreary castle, to Belle's first meeting with the Beast, to all the magic that lies within the cursed walls.

The castle's enchanted ensemble, including Lumière (Ewan McGregor), Mrs. Potts (Emma Thompson) and Cogsworth (Ian McKellen), are in on the action this time, as are a few of the other characters, like the baddie everyone loves to hate, Gaston (Luke Evans) — who vows to "kill the beast" in one scene.
