It seems the current state of affairs for Disney is to recreate classic animated features, but in a live action environment.  It started with Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella, and will continue with The Jungle Book, The Little Mermaid, and Beauty and the Beast.  That last title is still a-ways down the line, but their named cast keeps growing.  The most recent of the animated favorites to be announced is that of Lumière the Candlestick.


According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ewan McGregor (Moulin Rouge, Star Wars) is set to sing on as Lumière, the candlestick.  This part was originally voiced by Jerry Orbach, in Disney classic.

McGregor joins Emma Watson as Belle, Dan Stevens as the Beast, Luke Evans as Gaston, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, and Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts.
