Disney’s live-action remake of “Beauty and the Beast” arrives in theaters on March 17, and the movie studio is ramping up excitement with new character posters.
From a closer look at Emma Watson as Belle in the iconic yellow dress, to our first look at the Beast in human form (played by Dan Stevens), keep scrolling for a look at the stars of the movie.
#1 Emma Watson looks stunning as Belle, and we love the slightly updated version of her classic yellow ballgown.
#2 Here’s what the Beast will look like:
#3 Dan Stevens plays the prince in both beast and human form. We were surprised to see a look at the human-version so soon.
#4 Luke Evans looks every bit as arrogant and dashing as the live-action version of Gaston.
#5 Comedic singing sensation Josh Gad will play LeFou, Gaston’s goofy henchman.
#6 And Kevin Kline stars as Maurice, Belle’s father. But in the live-action version, Belle will be the inventor of the family.
#7 The welcoming Mrs. Potts is played by Emma Thompson.
#8 Ewan McGregor is almost unrecognizable as Lumiere.
#9 Lumiere’s best friend/bickering buddy Cogsworth will be played by Ian McKellen.
#10 And the entertaining Stanley Tucci will be Maestro Cadenza.
#11 Garderobe (the wardrobe) is played by Audra McDonald.
#12 And last but not least, we have Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette — Lumiere’s feather-duster love interest.
