Ewan McGregor rounds out the star-studded cast of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST as mischievous candlestick Lumiere!
Soon enough, Ewan McGregor will be serenading you over dinner!
The actor best know for roles in films like the STAR WARS prequels, BIG FISH, and MOULIN ROUGE will take on the friendly candlestick with a flirtatious, entertaining flair in the upcoming rendition of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST starring Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as The Beast!
An illustrious group of actors was already cast prior to Ewan McGregor to play the other servants turned household items, including Sir Ian McKellen (Cogsworth), Emma Thompson (Mrs. Potts), Audra McDonald (Garderobe) and Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Plumette). The actors may make a physical appearance, but obviously the majority of their characters’ screen time will be in CGI format.
On the live action side of things, Luke Evans and Josh Gad will round out the cast as Gaston and his sidekick, LeFou.
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is set to begin filming in May at Shepperton Studios in London.
