Cogsworth-and-Lumiere

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs.

Our first look at Lumiere and Cogsworth is below. They are voiced by Ewan McGregor and Sir Ian McKellen. They look pretty cool and a lot like the animated version although this is still concept art and could change for the final film. What do you think?

The image comes from a feature on the Blu-ray re-release of the animated version. There is also one of Gaston, played by Luke Evans, and LeFou, played by Josh Gad.

Jack Morrisey shared the images.

“Beauty and the Beast” is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.

The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar® winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Golden Globe® nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, the feather duster; six-time Tony Award® winner Audra McDonald as Madame Garderobe, the wardrobe; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.

Here’s a fine piece of concept art of Ewan McGregor as Lumière and Ian McKellen as Cogsworth. These designs are close but may not be final… ;D This is a frame from the “Sneak Peek” at Bill’s live-action Beauty and the Beast – coming next month on the 25th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray/DVD/Digital of Disney’s 1991 animated classic

Directed by Oscar® winner Bill Condon from a screenplay by TBD based on the 1991 animated film, the film is produced by Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman with eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken, who won two Academy Awards® (Best Original Score and Best Song) for the 1991 animated film, providing the score, which will include new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and Howard Ashman, as well as several new songs written by Menken and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice. “Beauty and the Beast” will be released on March 17, 2017.
