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.
