Ever since we first heard that the Disney classic was getting a live-action reboot way back in April 2014, we’ve been eagerly devouring any scrap of information we can get about the movie remake. So, what do we know so far?

‘These two, just standing there staring... Here's a fine piece of concept art of Ewan McGregor as Lumière and Ian McKellen as Cogsworth. These designs are close but may not be final... ;D’
We've also been treated to our first look at Belle's first costume (no, not that iconic yellow dress yet), with Disney releasing this sketch of Emma Watson's blue dress. Thoughts?
