John Legend and Ariana Grande have lent their voices to the hotly-anticipated blockbuster, Beauty and the Beast. The pair have teamed up to perform a duet of the film's classic title track – listen below!
Fans were treated to the first listen of John and Ariana's duet in a new trailer released this week. The two-minute clip shows Emma Watson and Dan Stevens immerse themselves in their roles as Belle and the Beast, respectively.
Emma is every inch the pretty young French girl that Disney fans remember from the children's cartoon classic. The actress wears the iconic yellow ball gown as she dances with the Beast to Tale As Old As Time in one of the film's most memorable scenes.
The latest trailer also gives a more comprehensive look at the film's other cast members, including Lumiere, played by Ewan McGregor, Cogsworth, played by Ian McKellen, and Mrs. Potts and Chip, played by Emma Thompson and Nathan Mack.
Emma, 26, recently opened up about her reasons to play Belle. The Harry Potter alum had just turned down the role of Cinderella when this project came along.

"I didn't know they were going to make Beauty and the Beast at the time I turned down Cinderella," Emma told Total Film. "But when they offered me Belle, I just felt the character resonated with me so much more than Cinderella did. She remains curious, compassionate and open-minded. And that's the kind of woman I would want to embody as a role model, given the choice."
The UN ambassador for women added: "In a strange way, she challenges the status quo of the place she lives in, and I found that really inspiring. And also, she manages to keep her integrity and have a completely independent point of view. She's not easily swayed by other people's perspective; not swayed by fearmongering or scapegoating."
