‘Beauty and the Beast’ Photo Reveals First Look at Dan Stevens’ Prince and His Glorious Hair
Last Friday, producer Jack Morrissey posted several pieces of concept art and behind-the-scenes photos from Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast remake. Those images gave us our first real look at Luke Evans’ dastardly Gaston, as well as Lumiere and Cogsworth, voiced by Ewan McGregor and Ian McKellen, respectively. It looks like we should’ve kept an eye on Morrissey’s Facebook page because the producer shared one more photo later in the day, and this one gives us our first behind-the-scenes look at Dan Stevens as the eponymous Beast.
You can view all the photos over on Morrissey’s Facebook page, including this one of Stevens in his human form, with some seriously enviable hair:

Yep, he definitely looks like a charming prince, alright. Meanwhile, more concept art made its way online, showing Emma Watson as Belle, Luke Evans as Gaston, and Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts (in human form):

As you can see, the design adheres pretty closely to Disney’s classic animated film, which isn’t all too surprising, since the first teaser for the live-action Beauty and the Beast was essentially a remake of the original trailer for the 1991 animated film.
Bill Condon (Dreamgirls) directed the new version, which also stars Josh Gad as LeFou, Kevin Kline as Maurice, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette and Stanley Tucci as Cadenza. Beauty and the Beast hits theaters on March 17, 2017.
