Well, selfies are just all the rang now, aren’t they?

And it looks like movie sets are no different as Frozen star Josh Gad has just posted a selfie on Instagram of the cast on the new Beauty and the Beast at Disney.

From left to right, the image features Gad (Lefou), Dan Stevens (Beast), Emma Watson(Belle), Luke Evans (Gaston) and Kevin Kline (Maurice).

The movie will be directed by Bill Condon (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn) and, interestingly, it will be scored by Alan Menken, who won two Academy Awards for the 1991 animated classic and it will feature new recordings of the classic tracks from that movie as well as newly composed ones.

Disney will release Beauty and the Beast in 3D on March 17, 2017

Can’t wait for you to be our guest.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
