A new clip for Beauty and the Beast shows off Josh Gad's pipes as he performs as LeFou, singing about Luke Evans' Gaston in the song of that same name. The performance is much like that in the animated film, but with a couple of small tweaks. When Evans kicks in with his own line, it's easy to see why he was cast as the brutish villain.
The clip comes after the Shanghai premiere for the film, where cast and crew took photos at the newly-opened Shanghai Disneyland and signed autographs and took selfies with fans. The full photo call for the premiere event is in the gallery below. With less than a month until its release, Disney is flying high on premieres, promotion, and a big win for their last live-action fairytale, as The Jungle Book won the Academy Award for best visual effects just last night. Beauty and the Beast is surprisingly rated at only a 3.58/5 on the ComicBook.com Anticipation Rankings currently, but fans of the original are clearly showing up in droves worldwide as its release approaches.

Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. “Beauty and the Beast” is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within. The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar® winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Golden Globe® nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.
