New stills of Belle, Beast & Gaston from Total Film magazine

Earlier this week, Emma Watson debuted the upcoming Beauty and the Beast cover of Total Film magazine (available January 17th) and today we have our first look inside the issue with four new stills from the film.

"The animated movie came out when I was a kid," he says. "It was really great. I think every generation has its own telling of this. It captures a lot of imaginations at once. It certainly captured mine." - Dan Stevens (Beast)

"We didn’t tone [Gaston] down. I think we did the opposite. Everything he does, he does extreme. There was no point trying to find a way to tone it down." -Luke Evans (Gaston)

Ariana Grande & John Legend to cover "Beauty and the Beast" for the film's soundtrack

It was a bit of a mystery when the official Beauty and the Beast Instagram page posted a photo of Ariana Grande last night with no caption. Fans drew their own conclusions about Grande and John Legend, who was tagged in the photo, collaborating on the pop version of the film's title song and their suspicions were confirmed with an official announcement this evening.

Deadline reports Grande and Legend will indeed perform "Beauty and the Beast" on the film's soundtrack and over the final credits. An official music video directed by Dave Meyers is also on the horizon before the film's release.

The song reunites producer Ron Fair and director of Disney's Music & Soundtrack Mitchell Leib, who also spoke with Deadline about the song.
“Ron was the first and only choice to make this particular record,” Leib said in a press statement. “No one is a better vocal producer and he also has a great understanding of the filmmaking dynamic.”

“Stepping into the shoes of an Oscar and Grammy award-winning classic is not small potatoes,” said Fair. “But with today’s two greatest plutonium singers – John Legend and Ariana Grande – we are bringing the song back with a new school-old school fresh treatment that shows the soulfulness and power of what a great melody and lyric can inspire.”
The Beauty and the Beast soundtrack is set for release on March 10, 2017. Pre-orders are now available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Disney Music Emporium.

Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson originally recorded a pop version of "Beauty and the Beast" for the animated film's release back in 1991, which peaked at #9 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. American Idol winner Jordan Sparks previously recorded a version of the song for Beauty and the Beast's Diamond Edition release in 2010.
