More casting news helps round out the cast for Disney’s Beauty & The Beast live-action remake. Ewan McGregor has joined as Lumiere and Stanley Tucci will take on a new character – Cadenza. They join Emma Watson, Luke Evans, Dan Stevens, Emma Thompson, Josh Gad, Kevin Kline, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Audra McDonald, and Ian McKellen.

Ewan McGregor is known for playing a wide variety of roles in his acting career. From ghost writer to Jedi to Trainspotting drug addict, he’s played a wide variety, but until now, he’s never been cast as a talking Candlestick. I hope McGregor can sing as well as he can wield a light saber. “Be Our Guest” is a pretty big moment in the film.

Bill Condon is directing from a script by Evan Spiliotopoulous and Steve Chbosky. Alan Menken returns to update the music and maybe add a new song or two.

Beauty and the Beast will waltz into theaters on March 17, 2017.
