Fans across the globe have been waiting for the release of the live-action film of Beauty and the Beast. The hype started ever since Walt Disney announced that it is going to make a film inspired by the romantic fairy tale. So, with still months away from its premiere, here are some confirmed artists who will play important characters.
A lot of fans know that Emma Watson is going to be the lead star of the film playing the role of Belle or the one referred to as ?beauty?. On the other hand, there are several characters that will play critical roles in the film such as Beast, Gaston, Lumiere and Mrs. Potts. Question is, who will play these characters and will they be effective in portraying them.
First, we have Beast or Prince Adam. He is the prince charming of this story and is definitely an important character. Now, for the man playing this role, it will be Dan Stevens. He is a great actor who appeared in several great movies such as Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, The Cobbler and A Walk Among the Tombstones.
Next we have Gaston. He is the main antagonist in the 1991 animated version of Beauty and the Beast. Gaston is still the main antagonist in the 2017 film and he will be portrayed by Luke Evans. Evans has proven how great of an actor he is appearing in blockbuster movies like The Hobbit franchise, Immortals, Dracula Untold and The Girl on the Train.
The third important role is Lumiere or a french word for ?light?. He is a man turned into a candelabra and is one of the inhabitants that actually speaks. Also, he has a French accent in the animated film, so everyone is expecting the same when Ewan McGregor plays the role.
Lastly, we have another inhabitant that speaks, Mrs. Potts. She is a supporting character in the film and she was originally the castle?s head housekeeper before the Enchantress transformed her into an enchanted teapot. Now, Emma Thompson is the one to portray the character.
Aside from these actors, Gugu Mbatha-Raw will also be there as Plumette, Stanley Tucci as Cadenza, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth and Kevin Kline as Maurice.
