Disney is pulling out all the stops for their live-action Beauty & The Beast! And by stops we mean stars, the newest of which is…
Ewan McGregor! The Moulin Rouge star will be singing once again as candlestick/maître d' Lumiere!

And because we now know the movie will contain the classic songs from the cartoon, Ewan will be singing the centerpiece Be Our Guest!
Hmm, he's not French, he's not known for his singing voice, and we don't get to look at his pretty face. Far be it from us to second-guess Disney, but hmm…. LOLz!
We also have the news that Stanley Tucci, who you may remember as the bombastic Caesar in The Hunger Games, has joined the cast as a whole new character — a neurotic piano named Cadenza!
Guess we'll find out how it all works on March 17, 2017!
What do YOU think about this casting??
