Luke Evans -- who plays Gaston in the upcoming live-action “Beauty & The Beast” film -- appeared on "Good Morning America" yesterday and brought with him a teaser that showcases the film's updated take on a fan favorite song.
That song is “Gaston” -- which is basically a song dedicated to how amazing feats of scoundrel and Belle's would-be suitor Gaston. The tune is a fan favorite from the original 1991 animated film. The brief clip (which you can see below) shows off LeFou (Josh Gad) leading a group of tavern goers in the song.
Those with a keen ear will note that while the song retains its familiar melody, the lyrics may sound a bit different. That’s because, according to Evans (while speaking to Entertainment Weekly), Disney added “a few new lines” to the song. Those lines are alternate ones that Howard Ashman wrote for the original film alongside Alan Menken.
Directed by Bill Condon, the film stars Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston; Kevin Kline as Mauricer; Josh Gad as Lefou; Ewan McGregor as Lumiere; Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza; Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette; Audra McDonald as Madame Garderobe; Ian McKellen as Cogsworth; and Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.
“Beauty and the Beast” arrives in theaters March 17, 2017.
