Did Josh Gad Just Show Us The 'Beauty And The Beast' Castle?

Um, can we be your guests?

Actors posting selfies from their films sets? A tale as old as time, true as it can be ... OK, actually, that's kind of a recent thing that surfed in with the tide of social media, but still. Nothing super new.

Even so, it's always kind of a surprise when somebody bends unexpectedly and posts a revealing behind-the-scenes glimpse at a set that has otherwise been pretty well concealed.

This time, it's Josh Gad who shared a pic from the set of "Beauty and the Beast" with co-star Luke Evans as a fit-for-Disney "The End" to production on the Bill Condon-directed live-action version of the fairy tale.

"That's a wrap! Will miss the cast of #beautyandthebeast especially my brilliant Gaston #LukeEvans," the "Pixels" star captioned the pic on Instagram.

Judging by that decadent staircase with improbably-dimensioned embellishments they're surrounded by, that's Beast's castle staircase full of fake snow they're chilling on. And even from this limited angle, is completely gorgeous.

And Josh's pic is book-ended by a couple of other castle-esque structure pictures that may or may not be related to this image. Here's why we kind of *hope* they are, Le Fou.

  • First, there was this pic of Windsor Castle.

    Sure, sure. It's Windsor Castle. We believe it. But those gardens could have easily served as a backdrop for some of Belle and Beast's castle wandering, and you know it. Especially that amazing fountain.

  • Then, there was this ridiculously perfect view from an Italian boat ride.

    It is so romantic it almost has to be involved with this movie somehow, no? Sure, it might've been a little more pizza than baguette, but that view is lush to a regal degree.

Keep 'em coming, Josh. We need this. Especially since "BATB," which also stars Emma Watson, Ian McKellen, Ewan McGregor, Dan Stevens, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Emma Thompson, Stanley Tucci AND Kevin Klein (phew - what a roll call), won't hit theaters 'til St. Patrick's Day '17.
