Be our guest, Ewan! The lineup for the live-action flick ‘Beauty & the Beast’ will be full of A-Listers, and the latest is the candlestick himself, Ewan McGregor! We’re totally in!
Ewan McGregor, 44, is in final negotiations to play Lumiere, the candlestick in Beauty and the Beast, The Hollywood Reporter reported, which rounds out a seriously impressive lineup. Ewan will join Emma Watson as Belle, Dan Stevens as the Beast, and Luke Evans as Gaston, just to name a few. Of course, the candlestick was one of the last people of the main cast to join – and he’s perfect.
Ewan McGregor To Play Lumiere In’Beauty & the Beast’
Of course we know that Ewan can sing and dance — he did it in Moulin Rouge 14 years ago, so hearing him take on “Be Our Guest” will be insanely good. Of course, that song will also feature Mrs. Potts, played by the incredible Emma Thompson!
Ewan has definitely been extremely busy lately — he just finished Jane Got a Gun alongside Natalie Portman, and was previously on Broadway with Maggie Gyllenhaal in The Real Thing!
Do you think he’ll make a good Lumiere?
