Belle Meets Lumiere and Cogsworth in New Beauty and the Beast Clip
The new web series The Oh My Disney Show included a nice little gift for you Beauty and the Beast fans—a clip from the new film showing Emma Watson’s Belle meeting Ewan McGregor’s Lumière and Ian McKellen’s Cogsworth.
In director Bill Condon’s lushly realized live-action retelling of the studio’s 1991 classic, Lumière and Cogsworth (as well as the rest of the gang, especially Dan Stevens Beast) come alive in ways we’ve never seen before. With cutting-edge CGI, Condon and his team were able to tell the story of Belle’s imprisonment in the Beast’s enchanted castle with more freedom and creative abandon then in any previous iteration of the story. Watching Belle befriend
the castle’s enchanted staff (how great does Lumière look?) and finding out about the Beast’s true nature has never looked this good.
Along with Watson, Stevens, McGregor and McKellen, Beauty and the Beast stars Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father; and Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, Stanley Tucci as Cadenza, Audra McDonald as Garderobe and Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts.
Beauty and the Beast will be released in theaters on March 17.
