‘Beauty and the Beast’ producer posts images of Cogsworth, Lumiere and the prince

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 28 (UPI) — Beauty and the Beast co-producer Jack Morrissey has shared on Facebook delightful images of several beloved characters as they appear in the upcoming, largely live-action re-make of the 1991 animated movie.

Morrissey posted a “moment of b-roll” footage from the big song and dance number “Gaston,” performed by Luke Evans [Gaston] and Josh Gad [LeFou,] as well as what he described as “concept art” of Ewan McGregor playing the enchanted candle Lumiere and Ian McKellen as the clock Cogsworth.

Another shot shows Dan Stevens as the prince who spends most of the movie as a cursed monster. He is seen smiling with long blonde hair and wearing a puffy, white shirt.

Co-starring Emma Watson, Emma Thompson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Kevin Kline, Audra McDonald and Stanley Tucci, the film was directed by Bill Condon and is set for release March 17.
