Luke Evans

You might not have noticed this, but Disney is pretty big on turning all of their animated fairy tale classics into new live action box office blockbusters.

Another one of their classics being adapted into a live action feature is arguably their very best animated fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast.

Martin?
