‘Beauty and the Beast’ Concept Art Offers First Look at Live-Action Lumiere and Cogsworth

Beauty and the Beast

Back in May, Disney released the first teaser trailer for their live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast, and although it was a rather lovely homage to the teaser for the classic animated version, it’s the only real preview we’ve had for the upcoming film. While we anxiously await the full official trailer, new concept art has debuted online that offers our first look at Lumiere and Cogsworth, along with a behind-the-scenes image of Gaston’s famous musical sequence.

The images originally appeared on producer Jack Morrissey’s Facebook page, where he revealed concept art of Lumiere and Cogsworth, voiced by Ewan McGregor and Ian McKellen, respectively. Morrissey says that “these designs are close but may not be final,” though they do give us a fairly good idea of what the characters will look like in the film:

You can also see a behind-the-scenes shot of Luke Evans’ Gaston and Josh Gad’s LeFou singing “Gaston.” Morrissey’s Facebook page has several more photos, including candid shots of the film’s stars, a photo of Evans and Gad in the recording studio, and a piece of sheet music for “Be Our Guest.”

Beauty and the Beast stars Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens (The Guest) as the enchanted beast, with Kevin Kline as Maurice, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, Stanley Tucci as Cadenza and Audra McDonald as Garderobe. Bill Condon (Dreamgirls) directed the live-action remake, which is based on a screenplay by Evan Spiliotopoulos (The Huntsman: Winter’s War) and Stephen Chbosky (The Perks of Being a Wallflower).

The film hits theaters on March 17, 2017.
