Neat? Or is Disney straight up plagiarizing itself? MoviePilot is the one who put the two trailers side-by-side. And the result is astonishing. It's almost like watching someone turned in their sister's old homework traced to look like their own. At the same time, it's pretty cool for nostalgia hounds. But is this new movie going to be an exact replica of what came before it? We do know that the movie has some new music.

Lansbury, who voiced Mrs. Potts in the film, was joined by the film’s composer Alan Menken at the piano. Menken also performed a medley of other Disney classics, including selections from “Hercules,” “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” “The Little Mermaid” and more.
