First read-through of 'Beauty & the Beast', starring Emma Watson

Ian McKellen (playing Cogsworth in the movie) shared on Twitter his experience of the first read-through, with the whole cast (though still no mention of Lumière). Another new cast is mentioned though, Hattie Morahan. It is not said which role she'll play.

The reading took place on April 15, which was Emma's (Belle), Luke Evans' (Gaston), and Emma Thompson's (Mrs Potts) birthday.

Part mentioning Emma:

But my favourite moment, because it made me weepy, was when Beast's loving arm was places tentatively on Belle's shoulder after their pas de deux. Clearly dancing and singing rehearsals had started before today.

With such a superb cast this film surely can't fail. I can't wait to see the finished article and am looking forward to finding out who is going to play Lumiere. Thanks again for all the info. Eden.
