Disney has had real success over the past few years with live-action remakes of animated favorites such as Cinderella and the lush CGI-heavy Jungle Book, and it seems as if they are pulling out all the stops for 2017’s Beauty and the Beast.

The teaser trailer, which dropped earlier this week, didn’t show off much outside of Beast’s beautifully decaying castle, but it did feature some familiar voices. Audiences are treated to Ewan McGregor‘s french-accented Lumiere and Ian McKellen as a gruff Cogsworth as well as a brief moment of Emma Watson‘s Belle.

If those names aren’t enough get you excited, other cast members include Downton Abbey‘s Dan Stevens as the Beast, Luke Evans as Gaston, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts. Josh Gad, Stanley Tucci, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Kevin Kline and Audra McDonald also round out this stacked cast.

Hopefully this teaser is enough to whet your appetite for now. The film is about a year out from its spring 2017 release. It’ll probably be a little while before we hear anything more, but if you want to get hyped up for it right now, be our guest!
