Although there was no sign of Emma Watson in the latest release of photos, fans were given a first look at the Belle actress in the film's first teaser trailer, which was released back in May. 

The trailer shows the Beast's derelict castle as Cogsworth and Lumiere discuss Belle, before showing a first look at the Harry Potter star as she examines an enchanted rose.
