Disney's live action remake of Beauty and the Beast has put together a rather stellar cast, and today we are lucky enough to see a whole bunch of them grouped together for the first time. Check out the selfie group photo below!
In case you couldn't tell, this image was posted by Josh Gad on his personal Instagram account, featured on the left side of the image alongside the rest of awesome castmates. From from left to right, the actors and their roles in Beauty and the Beast are as follows:
You'll notice that Emma Watson is the only actress pictured, surround by a group of male co-stars - but it should be noted that all of these actors merely comprise the live-action cast of Beauty and the Beast. There are also many fantastic actors who are attached to the film in key voice-over roles, who apparently weren't available or didn't make it into this selfie. This special group includes Emma Thompson as the teapot Mrs. Potts; Sir Ian McKellen as the small desk clock Cogsworth; and and Gugu Mbatha-Raw as the feather duster Plumette. It doesn't appear that the movie is finished adding talent to the cast either, so be sure to stay tuned for more updates about the production.
Stephen Chbosky, best known as the author of The Perks of Being A Wallflower, has penned the script for this new version of Beauty and the Beast, and it will be Bill Condon running the show, coming off of making the new drama Mr. Holmes (which also stars Sir Ian McKellen. If the cast is already starting to come together, you know that means production isn't far off, and it's likely that we'll hear about the start of filming within the next few weeks. Unfortunately, it looks like it's going to take a long, long time for this movie to be put together - what with all of the beast makeup and talking furniture. Because post-production is going to take a while, Disney doesn't have plans to release the project before March 17, 2017 - almost two years to the day after the studio's blockbuster hit Cinderella (not a coincidence).
