Emma Watson Welcomes Beauty & the Beast's Dan Stevens & Luke Evans to the Cast!

Emma Watson took to Twitter early this morning (March 5) to welcome her brand new Beauty and the Beast cast mates to the production!

“Could not be more happy that this man will be Beast!!! Welcome aboard @thatdanstevens #beautyandthebeast” the 24-year-old actress wrote on her Twitter account about Dan Stevens joining.

“Bonjour Gaston! ❤️ Welcome! #BeautyAndTheBeast” she added about Luke Evans.

News broke just yesterday that Dan would be playing the Beast and Luke would be playing Gaston.

There are still so many more roles in the upcoming live action Disney musical that have yet to be confirmed. Emma Thompson has been rumored for Mrs. Potts, but no other rumblings have been officially acknowledged by Disney. Stay tuned to for the latest BATB casting!

    I like Dan Stevens but he isn’t right for the role

  • Sharon

    It’s time for fair Emma to have her next blockbuster. I hope the chemistry is there. Otherwise, it’s just another fairy tale..

  • Living in a box

    Is this musical or non musical? Will Beast become CGI or costume?

  • Maria

    I hope Dan Stevens will be in Beast costume/ make up all the way through. He irritates me also. Perhaps, the role shold be switched with Luke !

  • Sharon

    The first reports said musical. I seem to remember Emma quoting something like, “I have to take singing lessons.” I might be wrong though.

  • Sharon

    What’s your take on the role Minnie? Who would you like to see as beast?

  • Anthony Stargaryen

    Dan Radcliffe! LOL

  • Sharon

    LOL. That’s funny Anthony. Disney could have an HP reunion.

  • Amelie Summer

    I think Daisy Ridley, Jessisca Brown Fildley, Gemma Arterton, Allison Williams, Samatha Barkes would better Belle, insead smug emma Watson who cannot

  • Kevin


  • Anthony Stargaryen

    The fun thing is that Dan was willing… what a wasted opportunity!


    Oh please, please, please let this happen soon.

  • alex

    emma GOD BLESS YOU!for me,you work at your best with this amazing men!!!!!

  • Cate

    The animated version is one of my favourite movies but this cast so far is so bland and underwhelming. Disappointing.

  • Gabrielle

    Awesome!!!! Can’t wait!! Emma Thompson would be perfect as Mrs. Potts. I can’t wait to see who they cast as the candlestick and the clock!!!

  • memel

    totally agree. And I’d like to continue as an animated version.

  • Sharon

    Daniel Radcliffe is a very talented guy. But would it be a fair statement to say he is a bit short to play Beast? Not slamming Daniel. Just wondering.

  • Sharon

    Another HP alumni. LOL

  • Anthony Stargaryen

    So much can go unnoticed thanks to modern filming techniques. Saying Daniel is too short to play the Beast is like saying John Rhys-Davies was too tall to play Gimli.

  • Missy

    Dan Stevens looks not very beastly. I know they will probably use CGI (or whatever) buuuuuuuuuut… I don’t know.

    Luke Evans is nearly perfect as Gaston. Maybe he looks a bit old next to Emma? But at least Gaston is a creep so it’s ok I think.
