“Can’t wait for you to be our guest.”

That’s how Josh Gad, 34, captioned a photo showing the principal cast from the upcoming live-action Beauty and the Beast, hinting at the animated original’s famous song.

Posted Tuesday, the snapshot shows Gad, Dan Stevens, Emily Watson, Luke Evans and Kevin Kline. The group is playing all the non-furniture roles in the remake – respectively Lefou, the Beast, Belle, Gaston and Bell’s father, Maurice.

Not pictured are Emma Thompson, Ian McKellen and the recently-cast Gugu Mbatha-Raw, who are each playing enchanted household items in the Beast’s castle.

Schedule for release on March 17, 2017, this new Beauty and the Beast is just one of the many Disney classics being adapted. On April 8, a live-action Pinocchio was announced.
