We literally just talked about the first cast photos being revealed for the upcoming live-action Beauty and the Beast, and well…apparently we and moviepilot.com jumped the gun! Why? Because yet another top notch actor has joined the cast which already includes Emma Watson, Josh Gad, Ian McKellan, Dan Stevens, Emma Thompson and Stanley Tucci. Whom?
Ewan McGregor. The Scottish actor will join the film as the chivalrous, yet humorous candlestick, ‘Lumiere’! We know he can sing, so hopefully all of the actors in the cast will be providing their own voices to recreate the Disney songs everyone loves from the original animated film.
Beauty and the Beast will release in 2017. Do you like this casting?
