While Pete's Dragon might not have set the box office ablaze, Disney does have another feather in its cap for next year in its line of live action translations, that of the heavily anticipated Beauty and the Beast.
Other than the initial casting and a lone trailer, there hasn't been much else seen from the movie until earlier today. Twitter user @sunkingkid726 posted two photos from the project with the caption "I got sneak peek photos from @EmWatson 's live action Beauty and the Beast @beourguest 🌹"
The first photo provides a look at Le Fou, played by Josh Gad, and Gaston, who is played by Luke Evans, though you can't see Evan's face. The scene is from earlier in the film when the two are singing in the tavern.
The second shot provides fans an up close look at fan favorites Lumiere and Cogsworth. With Lumiere, it's hard to make out his face, but it goes without saying just how adorable Cogsworth is, and he should be a marketing dream. Lumiere will be voiced by Ewan McGregor while Cogsworth will be voiced by Sir Ian McKellen.
In addition to the aforementioned actors, Disney spared no expense when it came to putting together an impressive cast. Alongside Gad, Evans, McKellen, and McGregor will be Emma Watson (Belle), Dan Stevens (Beast), Emma Thompson (Mrs. Potts), Stanley Tucci (Cadenza), Kevin Kline (Maurice), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Plumette), and Hattie Morahan (Agathe).
Alan Menken, who is composing the music for the film, gave fans some insight into a few new songs being created specifically for the live action version.
"So we wrote another song called 'Forever More,' like 'I now know what love is.' There's another song called 'Days in the Sun' which is a lullaby as all the objects and characters living in the castle are going to sleep they're all singing about remembering before the spell. I think it's gonna be a wonderful movie."
Beauty and the Beast hits theaters on March 17th, 2017.
