The Beauty and the Beast cast is already having a ball together. On Tuesday, Josh Gad shared a star-studded Instagram of the group, showing himself, Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Kevin Kline, and Luke Evans huddling close together for a selfie. "Can't wait for you to be our guest," Josh wrote, paying homage to "Be Our Guest" from the Disney classic's soundtrack. The picture was reportedly taken during rehearsals, and the live-action film isn't slated for release until March 2017, so this might be just one of many fun snaps the costars treat us to in the next couple of years.
The film has already garnered several big headlines this year. On Friday, we learned another familiar face will join the group, as the one and only Ian McKellen is set to play Cogsworth. Following Emma's casting news in January and the cast's congratulatory tweets to each other, Emma opened up about how nervous she is to play Belle. "I've never had to [sing] for a film before, and I think people will be interested to see me do something very different like that," she told Total Film. "It gives me a different challenge, really. That's terrifying in and of itself!"
