In the latest clip from the upcoming live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast, released on Wednesday, fans gets to see an adorably nervous side of the charming Beast (Dan Stevens).
With a little help from Plumette (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), Cogsworth (Ian McKellen), Mrs. Potts (Emma Thompson), and Lumiere (Ewan McGregor), the burly prince works up the nerve to ask Belle (Emma Watson) on a dinner date, but she has other plans in mind.
While the Beast stands on one side of the door patiently awaiting her response, Belle is busy trying to escape from his castle through a bedroom window.
Besides revamping the fairy tale love story of Belle and the Beast, Disney's fairy-tale remake includes an "exclusive gay moment" revolving around LeFou's (Josh Gad) feelings for Gaston (Luke Evans).
"LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston,"director Bill Condon revealed in an interview with Attitude magazine. "He's confused about what he wants. It’s somebody who's just realizing that he has these feelings. And Josh makes something really subtle and delicious out of it. And that's what has its payoff at the end, which I don’t want to give away. But it is a nice, exclusively gay moment in a Disney movie."
