The scene snippet, which clocks in at just under a minute (the full song runs 5 minutes, 33 seconds on the soundtrack album), hews closely to the seminal 1991 animated feature, which has been adapted by director Bill Condon.
Disney released the clip to mark the launch of the cast’s world promotional tour, which kicked off in Paris, birthplace of the fairy-tale source material, La Belle et La Bête.
The ensemble, which includes Watson, Dan Stevens (The Beast), Luke Evans (Gaston), and Josh Gad (Le Fou), along with Condon and composer Alan Menken, will hop the globe ahead of the film’s March 17 opening.
