Thanks to Josh Gad for tweeting out the cutest first cast picture in Disney history!
Gad (Frozen‘s Olaf) will play Gaston’s lackey, Le Fou, the upcoming live-action version of Beauty and the Beast. The post has been retweeted and favorited more than any other post from the cast at this point (and rightly so).
Can we just talk about Dan Stevens’s adorably confused look here, please? Hopefully the Beast won’t look so shocked in the film…
Missing from the photo are Emma Thompson who will play Mrs. Potts, Audra McDonald who will voice the wardrobe, and Sir Ian McKellen — the most recently announced cast member who will voice stately Cogsworth. Belle‘s Gugu Mbatha-Raw scored the role of Plumette, the feather-duster love interest for Lumiere. Lumiere has yet to be cast; the deceased Jerry Orbach will be difficult to top.
