Beauty and the Beast set photos give us our first look at Dan Stevens' Prince

We recently got our first look at Beauty and the Beast's live-action versions of Lumiere and Cogsworth courtesy of Jack Morrissey, and the producer isn't done teasing just yet. One of the latest set photos in his 25-image strong Facebook album for the film gives us our first look at Dan Stevens' Prince, who is sporting some envious locks. 

Check it out below...

I've enjoyed Stevens' work in both Night at the Musuem and The Guest, the latter of which in particular is a great showcase for why many (myself included) think he'd make a great James Bond. He definitely looks the part of a charming prince in this image, and I expect he'll knock that part of the role out of the park. It remains to be seen how director Bill Condon will handle the Prince's transformation into the titular Beast, but with any luck Morrissey will share an image of Stevens in beast mode sooner rather than later. 

Directed by Bill Condon and starring Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Emma Thompson, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellen, Josh Gad, Kevin Kline, and Stanley Tucci, Beauty and the Beast is set for release on March 17, 2017.
