They have at last cast Lumiere!

and its....Ewan McGregor


http://www.broadwayworld.com/article/Be-His-Guest--Ewan-McGregor-Joins-BEAUTY-AND-THE-BEAST-Film-as-Lumiere-20150421#



I'm, not sure how I feel on this casting. But at least we know he can sing and dance.

Other thoughts?

It has also been reviled that Hattie Morahan, whom Ian McKellen mentioned in his post on the first table reading, is playing the Enchantress.

And good lord this is a hugely star studded cast. no one single huge name like Maleficent or Cinderella, nearly EVERYONE'S a big name.

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.

He mentions a Hattie Morahan but no idea who she's playing.

Oh and we have this

We have a Beast and a Gaston!


Beast shall be Dan Stevens link

I know nothing of him not being a Downton Abbey watcher.


Gaston shall be Luke Evans Link

Him I know vaguly and think he will do a decent job.

It looks like, unlike Maleficent and Cinderella, that this WILL be a musical and using the songs we know and love. So, a live action version of the stage musical! And I love Emma in the role! I hope this is as amazing as it sounds like it can be.

The Real Beauty and the Beast

It's a condition known as "hypertrichosis" or "Ambras Syndrome," but in the 1500s it would transform one man into a national sensation and iconic fairy-tale character. His name: Petrus Gonsalvus, more commonly known today as the hairy hero of Beauty and the Beast. Discover the facts behind the fable as we follow Petrus's remarkable life with a very rare and hairy genetic condition. Then learn about this medical phenomenon, which continues to fascinate and perplex scientists to this day.

A friend posted this on facebook and I HAVE to share it! And I plan to MAKE it soon as well, its stupid simple.

It's a Recipe for the "grey stuff" served at the Be Our Guest restaurant at Disney World


http://www.themainstreetmouse.com/2014/01/03/so-what-exactly-is-the-grey-stuff/



“The Grey Stuff” Recipe

Ingredients:

1 (3.4 ounce) pkg Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
1 1/2 cups Whole (or 2%) Milk
15 Oreos (regular, not double-stuffed)
1 (8 ounce) tub Whipped Topping
3 tablespoons Instant Chocolate Pudding Mix
Edible Pearl Sprinkles

Here’s how to make it…..

Mix entire contents of vanilla pudding mix and milk in a large bowl with a whisk. Set in fridge to chill 5 – 10 minutes.

Place Oreos in food processor and blend until they are fine crumbs (no large chunks). If you don’t have a food processor, you can place them into a gallon-size freezer bag and smash using a rolling pin. This will take a bit of time, since you’ll want to get rid of all large pieces.

Take the pudding from the fridge and mix in the crushed Oreos. The mixture will be dark gray/black. Now, fold in the tub of whipped topping. It now is a lighter color but not quite gray. Finally, mix in the chocolate pudding mix and stir well. You should now have “the grey stuff”! Place back in fridge to chill for at least one hour before serving.

To serve, spoon into a cake decorating bag fitted with a star tip and swirl onto a dish. Top with a few edible pearl sprinkles.

This is coming out next year. I hope a subtitled release hits Theaters in the States, or at the very least on blueray. It looks sumptuous, lush and just all around amazing.

I just found these and they are very well researched and counter most every instance of Beast being called Adam







I personally met one of Beasts main animators at a convention a few years back and asked him and he was competently surprised and baffled by the rumor.

One more! From Glen himself!
