Entertainment Weekly reveals 1st look at the cast from Beauty and the Beast

11.02.2016

Bill Condon's live-action take on BEAUTY AND THE BEAST features a ridiculous all-star cast, including the likes of Emma Watson as Belle, Dan Stevens as the Beast, Luke Evans as Gaston, Kevin Kline as Maurice, Josh Gad as Lefou, Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, and Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts, just to name a few. Most of their looks has been hidden from the public eye...until today! EW dropped a first look at the cast, of which you can see below!

The upcoming issue of EW will also dive into film’s new songs penned by Alan Menken and Tim Rice. As you can see from the pictures above, it looks Bill Condon isn't straying too much from the source material. That's probably a good thing for fans of the beloved animated film, although I would've rather seen a somewhat different take. Ah well. I'm sure the end result will be fine, as it's hard to go wrong with that cast!

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST will open in theaters on March 17, 2017.

I understand the initial excitement, and the backlash. I just need to stop projecting my vision upon it and allow this to unfold.

Only thing I'm not digging is the beast's look. He looks horrible.

why would you expect something different?

It's from Disney, and in keeping with the recent history of adapting live action versions of their cartoon movies, I think it's safe to assume that we'll get exactly that. BUT, the cartoon is not really the original. It was a French fairy tale from 1740, and if you want to see a modern but different version, you have to just look back a couple months to when the french Beauty and the Beast movie came out here in the states, starring Vincent Cassel and Lea Seydoux from earlier this summer.

JimmyO seemed to really enjoy it based on his review, but that decidedly different version only got a 6/10 from him: [link]

Emma's got that Kirsten Stewart awkwardness going on in those pics.

As much as I love Luke Evans, I think he might be a bad casting choice for Gaston. Gaston is supposed to be a huge intimidating character who eats four dozen eggs every morning. Luke doesn't have the mass.

As others have pointed out below, this won't necessarily be a shot-for-shot remake. While GASTON will still be the villain, maybe his personality will be a little different.

It honestly looks pretty good. I've personally been digging these live-action adaptations of Disney's library.

But just because Condon is maintaining the same aesthetic from the Disney original, doesn't mean he's not adding anything new. The animated film is short and to the point to keep the attention of kids. There's plenty of room to expand on scenes, ideas, and plots/arcs. Way too early to say they ARE NOT adding anything new to the story.

The Beast looks remarkably like Goat Boy from the old SNL skit.

What's fake? The photos from EW? Or just the aesthetic in the movie?

If it's the movie, why would a trailer make you think Dan Stevens actually is a beast? What's going to change your mind?

Ok, calm down Police officers, Is my opinion, and for me it the movie looks fake.
the motion and perfomance from the actors maybe help to change my mind.

I don't think it's meant to look realistic. Nor should it.

You are not being smart right now, sergeantsnugglez. Nowhere did I say I was upset and I didn't say anything showing that I was either. I was only calling out Sabre's hypocrisy because he said he wants to wait to judge it yet he gave it a red. So he already judged it even though he said he'll need to wait to do that.

Its a red bar buddy who cares? The fact that you had to reply to "prove" something that he is showing hypocrisy in his comment is equally lame and childish.

You told me that I need to go to my safe space and you said I got mad even though I showed no indication of that. And in my reply to you I was just trying to explain to you why you were wrong about what you said. Instead of saying "OK I was wrong.", or something like that, you just attack and belittle me again. And you say I'm acting childish?...Ya. That makes perfect sense. (sarcasm)

@Sabre...I'm just saying that you gave it a rating when you said you'll have to wait to do that. So you contradicted yourself.
