Disney has added Beyond the Lights star Gugu Mbatha-Raw to the cast of its live-action Beauty and the Beast, Variety reports

Mbatha-Raw will reportedly take on the role of Plumette the feather duster. Emma Watson and Dan Stevens will star in the film’s title roles alongside Luke Evans (Gaston), Ian McKellen (Cogsworth), Emma Thompson (Mrs. Potts), and Josh Gad (LeFou). 

Bill Condon will direct, and Stephen Chbosky will rework an earlier draft of the script from Evan Spiliotopoulos. The reboot of the 1991 classic is expected to include the original songs sung by the main cast.

Production is slated to begin later this year in anticipation of Beauty and the Beast’s release on March 17, 2017.
