The cast had a magical night at the Beauty and the Beast UK premiere of the movie
Despite the blustery winds blowing up a storm in London, the cast of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST attended the UK premiere of the film on a spectacular, snow-dusted green carpet at Spencer House.
Emma Watson was the belle of the ball, as she was joined by her cast mates at the event for the special screening in Leicester Square of the fairy tale film, including Dan Stevens, Sir Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson, Luke Evans, Josh Gad, Stanley Tucci and director Bill Condon.
Take a look at what they had to say in their red carpet interviews below:

Disney’s new BEAUTY AND THE BEAST movie is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. Beauty and the Beast is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.
Beauty and the Beast stars Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Golden Globe nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.
Directed by Oscar winner Bill Condon based on the 1991 animated film, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is produced by Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman with eight-time Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken, who won two Academy Awards (Best Original Score and Best Song) for the 1991 animated film, providing the score, which will include new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and Howard Ashman, as well as several new songs written by Menken and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice.
Beauty and the Beast will be released in cinemas March 17th, 2017.
