Chris Pratt as a Candelabra? We Dream-Cast Disney's Beauty and the Beast Remake
CHRIS PRATT AS LUMIÈRE
LESLEY NICOL AS MRS. POTTS
As Downton Abbey's Mrs. Patmore, the English actress (who showed off her singing skills in a West End production of Mamma Mia!) already knows how to run a kitchen. And her character has mastered tough love: Imagine her scolding a mischievous Chip instead of her mentee Daisy.
DANIEL HUTTLESTONE AS CHIP
If this kid could steal scenes from Oscar winners Meryl Streep and Eddie Redmayne (as Jack in Into the Woods and Gavroche in Les Misérables, respectively), portraying a teacup is probably no sweat for the 15-year-old.
RICKY GERVAIS AS COGSWORTH
CLéMENCE POéSY AS FIFI
The sexy French actress already has fantasy films on her résumé – she starred as Fleur Delacour in the Harry Potter series – and we'd definitely pay to see Pratt work his charms on her flirty feather duster.
BOBBY MOYNIHAN AS LEFOU
Drunk Uncle playing Gaston's much-abused but steadfastly loyal sidekick? Sign him up! The Saturday Night Live funny man has the chops to pull off all of LeFou's physical comedy, and we can totally imagine him twisting his face into a sinister grin while carrying out Gaston's dirty work.
LIAM NEESON AS MAURICE
You can't doubt the Irish hunk's commitment to fatherhood on screen. Just picture Neeson springing to action when Belle sacrifices herself for him, trying to convince the village that there really is a beast, a horrible, monstrous beast who's got her locked in the dungeon. Okay, maybe he'd have a tough time getting Taken, but as an eccentric inventor, Maurice does have a very … particular set of skills.
