Actors Ewan McGregor and Sir Ian McKellen will make a surely lovable pair as Lumiere and Cogsworth, the candle and the clock, in Beauty and the Beast. We know McGregor can sing from his time in Moulin Rouge, but I can't wait to see how he tackles "Be Our Guest"!
Variety is reporting that Stanley Tucci (The Hunger Games, Captain America) has joined the cast of the upcoming live action Beauty and the Beast. He joins stars Emma Watson, Emma Thompson, and Kevin Kline as a brand new character, a "neurotic maestro" grand piano named Cadenza.
What do you think of the film's inclusion of a new character? Are you excited to see Stanley Tucci join the film?
Veteran actress Emma Thompson has reportedly signed on to play Mrs. Potts in the upcoming live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. Kevin Kline has also been cast as Belle's bumbling father, Maurice. U.S. Marshal Artemus Gordon and the always lovely Professor Sybil Trelawney will be joining Luke Evans, Dan Stevens, and Emma Watson in the film, which has been set for a March 17, 2017 release.
