Hope meets Beauty and the Beast stars Luke Evans and Josh Gad

13th March, 2017

To celebrate the release of Disney's new live-action version of Beauty and the Beast, our reporter Hope sat down with the film's terrible twosome Gaston and Lefou, played by Luke Evans and Josh Gad.

Hope spoke to Evans and Gad about their on and off-screen friendships, the difference in filming live-action to voicing animation, the experience of working on such an enourmous set, and quizzed the pair on who's the better singer, dancer and horseback rider in our 'Good as Gaston' game.

"The day was such a lot of fun and I really enjoyed interviewing Josh Gad and Luke Evans", said Hope after the experience. "They were so lovely and full of joy and energy.The film taught me a lot about not judging people from first glances and to always stick to what you believe in. I loved playing the "Good as Gaston" game with them because they were both up for a challenge and a bit of fun and all-in-all the day was such a lot of fun and really interesting."

Hope reviews Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and The Beast was one word: incredible. It was so beautifully done and so perfect (especially having to live up to the original) from the famous "Be our guest" song to the first dance between Belle and the Beast.

The costumes were bold and beautiful, executed to such a high standard and full of little details that really made the audience go wow. Belle was such a feisty and strong female lead and really stood for what she believed in and has come a long way since all the classic "waiting for my prince to come" soppy stuff.

The overall message of not judging a book by its cover was beautiful and very thought provoking and really made you think about you're own actions sometimes. The set was stunning and so accurate and captivated a beautiful castle in a eerie yet incredible way. Not forgetting the stunning animation that really brought the characters to life and made you believe in things like talking clocks and candlesticks...
