The New 'BATB' Poster Shows Household Objects In Human Form

You'll see Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, and Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, among others.

Disney's live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast just might be the most highly-anticipated movie of 2017—but for all of the many sneak peeks the world has gotten so far, it's safe to say you've never seen the film's characters like this.

Hot on the heels of a brand new teaser trailer, Emma Watson took to Twitter to share the latest poster for the film, featuring all of the movie's most beloved characters. But while there are plenty of familiar faces on the poster—including the Beast, Gaston, Le Fou, and, of course, Belle herself—there are also quite a few characters whom you might not recognize due to the fact they're in human form.

Of course, fans probably shouldn't get too used to seeing these faces, as the characters will probably not be human for the majority of the movie—but nonetheless, the poster is magical AF and brings up a bunch of new questions about how the classic story will be told this time around. Plus, it's a great reminder of what a ridiculously incredible cast helped make this film a reality.

Beauty and the Beast hits theaters on March 17.
