Josh Gad, Instagram


The gang's all here!

Josh Gad shared a photo with his fellow Beauty and the Beast co-stars on Instagram earlier today, including Emma Watson, Luke Evans, Kevin Kline and Dan Stevens.

The photo marks the first time that we've seen some of the stars together since the casting announcements first began surfacing back in January.

The celebs all seemed to be thrilled about beginning production on the highly anticipated live-action Disney flick and Gad captioned the snapshot, "Can't wait for you to be our guest!"

But this group of famous faces aren't the only ones we can expect to see on the big screen come March 17, 2017—yes, we really have to wait that long!

Emma Thompson has signed on to play Mrs. Potts, Ian McKellen will star as Cosgworth, Audra McDonald will play Madame de la Grande Bouche and Gugu Mbatha-Raw will undoubtedly shine as Plumette in the upcoming Bill Condon-directed picture.

How is that for some serious star power?

Alan Menken, who won two Academy Awards in 1991 for the animated classic version, will be scoring the reboot.

According to the press release, the live-action movie will feature "new recordings of the original songs" in addition to new music written by Menken and Sir Tim Rice.

Production was initially set to begin in the coming weeks at the Shepperton Studios in London, but it looks like the group got together a bit early!
