‘Beauty and the Beast’ producer posts character images

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A producer on the upcoming live-action adaptation of “Beauty and the Beast” has invited his social media followers to be his guest to a first look at several characters from the film.

“Beauty and the Beast” co-producer Jack Morrissey posted images on his Facebook account Friday of computer-generated renditions of Ewan McGregor as candelabra Lumiere and Ian McKellen as clock Cogsworth, as well as Dan Stevens in his human prince form.

Morrissey says the images are from a sneak preview that will be included in the 25th anniversary edition of the 1991 animated “Beauty and the Beasty” out Sept. 20.

Emma Watson, who plays protagonist Belle, was previously glimpsed in a teaser trailer released earlier this summer.

Disney’s live-action “Beauty and the Beast” is set for release March 17, 2017.
