No…One…Sings ‘Gaston’ Like Luke Evans’ Gaston in New ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Clip
Finally, the moment we’ve all been waiting for ever since Disney announced this live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast: The Gaston song. Listen, this “tale as old as time” is sweet and magical and all that other wonderful stuff, but it’s okay to admit that you’re 100 percent here for Luke Evans as the nefarious, narcissistic master of swagger, performing what is, with apologies to Angela Lansbury, the actual greatest song from Beauty and the Beast (don’t @ me).
Good Morning America debuted the new clip from Beauty and the Beast, featuring Luke Evans and Josh Gad as Gaston and Le Fou, respectively, performing “Gaston”:
And now you’ll have that song stuck in your head for the rest of the day. You’re welcome.
It’s a fairly short sneak peek, but we do get a brief preview of Evans singing a verse and he seems quite charming. (Josh Gad as Le Fou is probably what we all expect, of course.) The other standout is the cinematography, which looks gorgeous. Bill Condon directed Beauty and the Beast, which reunites him with Dreamgirls cinematographer Tobias A. Schliessler (whose credits also include Ava DuVernay’s upcoming adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time).
Disney’s newest live-action adventure stars Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as Beast, with Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, Audra McDonald as Garderobe and Stanley Tucci as Cadenza. Beauty and the Beast hits theaters on March 17.
