'Beauty and the Beast' cast hits the recording studio

It's official: The live-action Beauty and the Beast cast has hit the recording studio!

Luke Evans, who plays Gaston, posted a photo of himself and Josh Gad, who plays his sidekick Le Fou, looking like regular old chums.

And he didn't stop there. It hasn't been long since Evans' role was announced, but he's already proving no one tweets like Gaston.

His trusty sidekick isn't the only member of the cast and crew Evans has been spending quality time with. He tweeted another photo of himself, model friend Daisy Lowe and beloved Disney composer Alan Menken, who was the mastermind behind the music of the original film.

Did we mention Evans is really embracing his character?

Let hope this is the first of many sneak peeks as the live-action adaption comes together.

Beauty and the Beast is set to hit theaters in 2017.
