Ewan McGregor: "Recording the big 'Be Our Guest' song was just fantastically fun"

In a new interview with Collider, Ewan McGregor spoke about his role as Lumiere in Beauty and the Beast, including working with director Bill Condon and recording "Be Our Guest" for the film.

Could you ever have imagined that you could add playing Lumiere, the Beast’s singing candelabra, in a live-action Beauty and the Beast film? What was that experience like, making that film with Bill Condon?

McGregor: It’s no different to anything else. It’s interesting because it’s partly animated, but partly not. Voicing an animation is a process. They partly animated off of what you’ve done, and you partly perform off of what they’ve done. It’s a nice collaboration. I really like working with Bill Condon. He’s a director I’d love to work with again. And there are some great actors in it – Stanley Tucci, Emma Thompson, Sir Ian McKellen. We had a great time together when we were working on set. And then, I’ve enjoyed working with Bill on the post-production side of it, as well. And recording the big “Be Our Guest” song was just fantastically fun, and nothing something I’ve done in quite awhile. I haven’t recorded a song for a movie since Moulin Rouge, so it’s been quite a long time.

I spent a happy afternoon recording this with Bill Condon for #beautyandthebeast #disney #lumiere
