Greatest Characters from Beauty and the Beast (2017)


The Top Ten

1 Captain Gaston (Luke Evans) Captain Gaston (Luke Evans)

Luke Evans did a great job playing Gaston! I love that they made Gaston more mean in this Beauty and the Beast than in the cartoon one. I like the new songs. I think How does a moment last forever tuck over Beauty and the beast as the mane song. - PrincessFan

Yes in this version Gaston is a war hero. - mom4

He is always a good character, but this Michele seriously didn’t need to be made. It was better as a cartoon- the silent film original is also a masterpiece.

And his name is g a s t I think there's another t it just accoured to me I never had to spell his name out loud before - maloneyscott

2 Beast (Dan Stevens) Beast (Dan Stevens)

Dan Stevens is amazing! - hollyeb13

3 Belle (Emma Watson) Belle (Emma Watson) Belle is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 30th animated feature film Beauty and the Beast (1991) and in the live action remake Beauty and the Beast (2017). Belle is the intelligent and selfless young daughter of an inventor who does not conform to the normal ways of her small more.

The irony is that Emma turned down La La Land for this. Let's be honest though Emma Stone would have been a complete miscast for this. - mom4

Yay! It combined my fave Disney princess and fave Harry Potter character!

Belle is great, she deserves to be number 1

Emma Watson is a perfect Belle! - hollyeb13

4 Cogsworth (Ian McKellen) Cogsworth (Ian McKellen)

You could tell that Ian was channelling his inner Gandalf. This clock with a Shakespearian voice is the sergeant major of the castle's staff. - mom4

5 Lumiere (Ewan McGregor) Lumiere (Ewan McGregor)

Ewan himself had often said that his French accent sounded a bit more Mexican. A Mexican / Spanish Lumiere would have sounded fun. - mom4

I love him just because Ewan McGregor played Obi-Wan - hollyeb13

6 LeFou (Josh Gad) LeFou (Josh Gad)

Much has been said about Josh Gad's so called gay character. It's more of a hero worship rather than a crush. - mom4

Sometimes the news stirs things in the wrong way I thought of this character as not the way they make it out to be. - htoutlaws2012

7 Mrs. Potts (Emma Thompson) Mrs. Potts (Emma Thompson)

It's a rather inspired decision to make this teapot have a cockney/East London accent. I guess that's nearly all bases covered. - mom4

8 Plumette (Gugu Muthba-Raw) Plumette (Gugu Muthba-Raw)

Better than the animated

9 Madame De Garderobe (Audra McDonald)
10 Cadenza (Stanley Tucci)

The Contenders

11 Maurice - Kevin Kline
12 Stanley (Alexis Loizon)
13 Sultan

This was the dog in case you don't know. I don't know who he was played by, by the way.

14 Babbette
