It's a song as old as rhyme...

It's a song as old as rhyme, but the title track from Beauty and the Beast is getting a grand makeover for its 2017 reboot release.

A final trailer for the live action remake of the Disney animated classic has been unveiled ahead of its cinema release in March, and it features a re-working of the theme song by Ariana Grande and John Legend.

Watch the latest trailer below - the song kicks in around the 1m 30s mark:  

The Beauty and the Beast theme was first recorded by Angela Lansbury, who voiced the character of Mrs Potts in the 1991 original. The track was then released as a single by a then-little-known Celine Dion and US singer Peabo Bryson, reaching Number 9 on the Official Singles Chart

The track went on to win a Golden Globe and a Grammy for Best Original Song. 

The new Beauty and the Beast stars Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as the Beast. The film hits cinemas worldwide on March 17 and the soundtrack is released the same day.
