The live action Beauty and the Beast remake released its first trailer this past May, and while the preview provided an excellent tour of the castle setting and the quickest of glances at Emma Watson's Belle, none of the movie's anthropomorphic characters made an appearance. The closest things we got to that was hearing Ewan McGregor's Lumiere and Ian McKellen's Cogsworth speaking about the "beauty" who entered their humble abode. Three months later, now we finally have our first taste of what the human-like candelabra and clock will look like in this re-telling.

Producer Jack Morrisey posted this concept art on his Facebook page of the live action versions of Lumiere and Cogsworth (passed along by Twitter user macondom). This comes from one of the special features on the original Beauty and the Beast movie's upcoming 25th anniversary Blu-ray/DVD release. Morrisey notes that these designs may not be exactly how they look in the final product, but they're close. Perhaps this "sneak peek" at the new Beauty and the Beast movie will also include artwork at some of the other transformed characters, like Emma Thompson's Ms. Potts or Stanley Tucci's Cadenza. As for Lumiere and Cogsworth, this is definitely a less cartoonish look than what we're used to, which was to be expected given this is a live action movie and how advanced CGI technology is nowadays. I like how Lumiere doesn't seem to have a face in the artwork, whereas Cogsworth's clock face works as an acceptable substitute for his human visage.

This look at Lumiere and Cogsworth in Beauty and the Beast certainly provided a good idea about how the Beast's other servants might look like in their walking and talking inanimate object forms, but the fun isn't over yet.
