The teaser trailer for the Beauty And The Beast , which comes out in March of 2017, amassed an astounding 91.8 million views in its first 24 hours! Beating out 88 million views for Star Wars: The Force Awakens to become the fastest viewed video ever on YouTube.
The trailer is actually a shot for shot recreation of the original 1991 Beauty and the Beast animated teaser. Even a YouTube user, Studiorbit, went ahead and put the old trailer and new trailer on top of each other so you could see just how faithful the whole thing is.
Disney figured out a winning formula for crowd-pleasing movies — re-imagining childhood favorites with popular actors of the day. Beauty And The Beast certainly didn’t skimp on names. In addition to Harry Potter star Emma Watson, it’s also got Ewan McGregor, Kevin Kline, Ian McKellen, and Emma Thompson amongst others.
Enjoy the trailer!
