If you loved Beauty and the Beast as much as I did as a child then you're probably barely containing your excitement for the reboot currently in production. Luckily for us, the reboot will be a live-action film, which means not only do we have an idea of what the characters will look like, we also get plenty of social media posts popping up when we least suspect them - like yesterday!

Luke Evans, who will play egotistical and handsome Gaston, posted a pretty adorable picture of him and Josh Gad, who will play his bumbling sidekick LeFou in the film. Take a look:

Pretty exciting right?!

The fact that our Gaston and LeFou are together and inside a recording studio looks like a great sign that the high-profile production is going full steam ahead. You can almost hear the words to 'Gaston' coming out of their mouths...

But that wasn't all Luke Evans had to share from his time in the recording studio, giving fans another glimpse into the recording studio, and confirming that he was in fact recording vocals for Gaston's song in the film with some clever hashtags.

The song was certainly speaking the truth - Gaston is the best and the rest is all drips!

These two snaps are the second and third posts that fans have been privy to - we were already lucky enough to glimpse some of the the main (human) cast when LeFou a.k.a. Josh Gad, posted this picture to Instagram three weeks ago:

How adorable do they all look! In the photo, from left to right we have: Josh Gad as LeFou, Dan Stevens as the Beast, Emma Watson as Belle, Luke Evans as Gaston and finally Kevin Klein as Maurice. What a good looking cast!

Joining these five in the film will also be the celebs starring as the furniture: Ewan McGregor as Lumière, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, Ian McKellan as Cogsworth, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, Audra McDonald as Garderobe and Stanley Tucci as Cadenza.

With such an enormous and well known cast, I have a sneaking feeling that we'll have plenty of amazing cast photos to look forward to and I can't wait for more!

The live-action Beauty and the Beast will released in cinemas on March 17, 2017.
