McKellen Posts “Beauty and the Beast” Report

Who needs reporters dropping their repetitive lists of the however many factoids they garnered from visiting the set of a movie when you can get the actors themselves to write a truly eloquent piece about the making of said film from the inside.

That came with Ian McKellen today who offered a very well-penned breakdown of the live script read through for Disney’s live-action take on their animated classic “Beauty and the Beast”. Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Josh Gad and Kevin Kline were on hand for the read through and Gad tweeted a photo of much of the gang together:

Can’t wait for you to be our guest.

The read-through itself seemed to go all out with a full choir, dancing and decoration. Check out McKellen’s well-penned report below
