This makes it real right? ‘Beauty and the Beast’ is officially becoming a live-action movie and now there’s a cast photo to show it.
Be our guest? Surely! Josh Gad, who plays Le Feo, just posted the first cast photo of the live-action Beauty and the Beast film, which is full of an a-list cast. Yes, Emma Watson is making her first appearance as Belle! So exciting! See the first pic here!
‘Beauty & The Beast’ Cast Photo — Josh Gad Shares First Look At Live-Action Movie
“Can’t wait for you to be our guest,” Josh captioned the picture, where he’s posing with Emma (Belle), Luke Evans (Gaston), Dan Stevens (Beast), Kevin Kline (Maurice). Of course, Josh plays Le Fou!
Please join me in saying, we will all be your guest any day.
The photo is missing a few newer cast members — Emma Thompson who will play Mrs. Potts, Gugu Mbatha-Raw who will play Plumette (the Feather Duster), Ian McKellen who will play Cogsworth (the Clock), and Audra McDonald while is taking on Garderobe (the Wardrobe)!
When Can We Join The Ball?
Beauty and the Beast is set to hit theaters on March 17, 2017, and we have yet to find out who will play Lumiere, but we know it will be someone perfect for the part. All the other casting has been spot on. Bill Condon, the director of Dream Girls, will be helming the film.
This is just one of the many live-action films Disney is working on, after the extreme success of Cinderella. The others include Mulan, The Jungle Book, and Dumbo.
Are you excited for Beauty & the Beast, HollywoodLifers? Do you think it’s the right casting? Who you think should play Lumber? Let us know your thoughts!
