A Beauty and the Beast producer has given fans a glimpse of what they can expect when the live-action version of the Disney fairy tale hits cinemas next year.

Jack Morrissey has shared a series of behind the scenes snaps on Facebook, and while there isn’t a look at the Belle of the ball, Dan Stevens is seen for the first time as the prince – before he turns beastly.

The designs for Lumière and Cogsworth, played by Ewan McGregor and Ian McKellen, were also revealed alongside a warning from Morrissey that the looks “are close but may not be final”.

Luke Evans meanwhile, who plays the muscular Gaston, appears twice - once alongside Josh Gad as LeFou and then while dancing with an unnamed actress.

The images come over a year after filming first began but little has still been seen of the set, even the official trailer gives very little away.

Fans may be able to glean a little more from another sneak peak which is due to be released next month to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the animated Disney original.
