I was out of town *meeting Peter S. Beagle!* so I didn't get to post this when it was released. But Ian McKellen is our Cogsworth!
And I missed announcing Audra McDonald as the Wardrobe.
GuGu Mbath-raw is playing Fifi / Babette / Plumette / whatever they are calling the Feather Duster this time round. *Plumette is off of the upcoming movies IMDB page.
Still no word on who will be playing Lumiere, Chip, The Bimbetts, or Monsieur D'Arque.
Rehearsals have started and Ian posted an amazing story about them you can read at.http://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2015/04/ian-mckellen-beauty-and-the-beast-rehearsal
He mentions a Hattie Morahan but no idea who she's playing.
Oh and we have this
