Now we have a better idea of how some of these characters are going to look.
To go along with the first teaser released earlier this year, two new official images from Disney’s live action remake of their musical version of Beauty and the Beast have been released…but one isn’t final.
The picture of Lumière and Cogsworth (played by Ewan McGregor and Ian McKellen, respectively) is not a final image from the upcoming film. It’s been described as late stage concept art that, while close, is still subject to change. (Sounds to me like the studio is uncertain themselves and is fishing for feedback before they lock these character designs in.)
The next image is official, taken from the song “Gaston”. Josh Gad‘s LeFou can be seen in the upper right hand corner, with Gaston facing him (leaving actor Luke Evans‘ back to us).
And then, finally, is a leaked (allegedly) backstage photo of actor Dan Stevens striking his non-Beast look.
Diseny’s live action Beauty and the Beast musical lands in theaters next spring, March 17, 2017.
