A Live-Action Beauty & The Beast Is Coming To Theaters — And We've Got The Perfect Casting Options For The Film! (You're Welcome, Disney!)

live action beauty and the beast coming who should be cast

A tale as old as time

Disney has JUST announced that following the success of Maleficent, they're bringing another classic to the big screen in live-action form and it's none other than…

Beauty and the Beast!!!!

Not only is it coming, but it's confirmed that Bill Condon, who was the genius behind Twilight: Breaking Dawn, will be directing the film!!

Guess Disney doesn't care that there's a Guillermo Del Toro live-action BatB titled Beast already in the works.

But the question that remains is who will play Belle? Beast? Lumiere? Cogsworth?!?! GASTON?!?!

Well, Disney, we did you a favor and narrowed down the actors and actresses who should be your top picks..

Find out if you agree or disagree with our choices…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

There are a lot of actresses for Belle, but we think they should choose from these talented babes…

Emma Watson or Emilia Clarke would be perfect!

There's also Lupita Nyong'o and Selena Gomez too!

But then there's also Natalie Dormer or even Leighton Meester!

Oh no, but what about Margot Robbie or Hailee Steinfeld!

On the younger side, there's also Bella Thorne or Maia Mitchell!

SO MANY OPTIONS! But, what about the Beast?

Well..there's OF COURSE Hugh Jackman or Charlie Hunnam!

But what about Bradley Cooper or Benedict Cumberbatch too?!?

Or if they want a super hunky, super muscly Beast, they could go with Idris Elba or Jason Momoa aka Khal Drogo from Game of Thrones!

As for the characters of Lumiere & Cogsworth?

Sascha Baron Cohen as Lumiere and Jonah Hill as Cogsworth? Hilarious!

Jean Dujardin and Josh Gad could bring amazing things to the roles!

If Russell Brand teamed up with CeeLo they would for sure have us rolling on the floor laughing for the whole movie!

As for Mrs. Potts? The original actress Angela Lansbury is the top runner (even if she's a little old for the role now, but COME ON!), but after her we would LOVE to see Octavia Spencer!

And for Chip? Hayden Byerly of The Fosters or Quvenzhané Wallis would be too perfect for words!

Even if they DON'T take our suggestions for anything else, we have three absolutely PERFECT casting choices for the following roles…

Joe Manganiello as Gaston could not BE more suited for the role.

Babet aka the sensual feather duster is literally a role MADE for Sofia Vergara!

Oh, and of course, Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian as the Bimbettes aka the three girls in love with Gaston!

    only anne hathaway can do belle. she even looks like her.

    slutlena on the other hand looks like a peasant. she should be an extra as one of the mindless villagers since she is so irrelevant.

    Hailee Steinfeld for Belle, she'd play it perfectly and the publicity for it would be great for her
