SO happy with this revelation! Ewan McGregor will play Lumiere (the candlestick) He. Is. Going. To. Be. SO. Good! He is perfect. I could not be more excited to see this film. Stanley Tucci has also been cast as a brand new character Cadenza - a grand piano which sounds very exciting. How on earth will they animate that?! This is just the best cast ever.
Just when you thought the cast for Disney’s new, live-action Beauty And the Beast had reached peak cool, along come the two new additions. Ewan McGregor has scored the plum human-turned-singing object role as candlestick Lumiere, while Stanley Tucci is on board to play a character new for this film, warbling grand piano Cadenza. It's time to play the music, it's time to light the lights... Emma Watson is Belle, the beauty who wins the heart of The Beast (Dan Stevens), a prince who is living under an evil spell. Also part of the cast are Luke Evans as Gaston, the cruel, jealous suitor who also hopes to win Belle’s heart, his bumbling servant Le Fou, played by Josh Gad and Kevin Kline as Belle’s father, Maurice.
