EditWe all swooned when we found out Emma Watson would be playing Belle in the upcoming live action re-make of Beauty and The Beast, but now one of our favourite disney couples is on the way to being complete again with Dan Stevens in talks to be cast as the beast!
The Downton Abbey character has that rugged look that is perfect for our beloved beast.
There are still a few things to be confirmed, such as whether the movie will be a full blown musical or not. Although something will definitely be amiss if we don’t all get the chance to scream along to Be our Guest and Tale as Old as Time.
There are also rumours that Luke Evans will be playing Gaston, but these are yet to be confirmed too.
I am excited to see how CGI is used to create the beast, whether he’ll take on a more realistic look, or whether he’ll be all warm and cuddly…I can’t decide what I want yet either.
With a lot more to be revealed, disney fans everywhere are waiting with bated breath!
