Disney has been very tight-lipped about its live-action "Beauty and the Beast" movie coming out in March 2017.

But Entertainment Weekly got exclusive photos of the movie, which will star Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as The Beast. And the images look pretty stellar.

The movie will also star Ian McKellan as Cogsworth (the clock), Ewan McGregor as Lumière (the candelabra), and Luke Evans as Gaston.

"Beauty and the Beast" has been made into a movie several times, but the 1991 Disney animated film is beloved by millennials, who will no doubt go to the Emma Watson version in droves.

Apparently Watson herself was one of those kids who loved the Disney animated classic. 

"I can’t even think how many times I watched it as a child," the former "Harry Potter" star told EW in its cover story on the new "Beast." "I knew all the words by heart. I knew all the songs by heart."

Check out the images on EW's site or when the issue hits newsstands November 4.

Needless to say, fans are salivating for even more.
