Belle and Beast Get Flirty in a New 'Beauty and the Beast' TV Spot

The inter-species sexual tension is real.

Beauty and the Beast is pretty much the only thing getting us through the bleak mid-winter (opens in new tab) (the struggle is truly real), and hark! A new TV spot just dropped in which Belle and her Beast captor/love interest get all kinds of flirty.

Her: "I never thanked you for saving my life."

Him: "I never thanked you for now leaving me to be eaten by wolves."

Her: *giggle, giggle, giggle*

Honestly, it's like you go through life thinking you'll never ship a human/beast relationship, and then this movie comes along and makes you question everything. On that note, Beauty and the Beast hits theaters on March 17.
