Why is March 17, 2017 so far away? That's how long we have to wait for Bill Condon's live-action "Beauty and the Beast," starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens, and we're even more excited and impatient after hearing new teases from Luke Evans. No one hypes like Gaston, and he did his movie proud in a video interview with Collider. It's clear he adores Josh Gad -- his bromance buddy who plays LeFou to his own Gaston -- and he said they both sang live on set, in addition to being pre-recorded along with the rest of the cast.

Speaking of music, Luke also talked about the movie's two new songs from Alan Menken and Tim Rice, which will join the original Disney songs. Apparently fans should prepare for some instant classics -- to be sung over and over again for years.

Here's how Luke put it:

I'm lucky enough to be one of the first people in the world to hear those two songs, which will become songs that children will sing, adults will sing, people in musicals will end up singing them at some point, they'll become audition piece, they will become part of this amazing legacy of a film we already have, a story that is so ingrained in our — in my childhood memory. And these two songs, they're beautiful, they complement everything so well, but they are incredibly unique and different. And the thought and love that has gone into those two songs honor the work of the original so well. It will be a nice thing, especially for the fans, to hear these two new songs on top of the beautiful stuff we already have. It's going to be great."

Watch the full interview for a lot more from Luke. He has us needing this movie and soundtrack right now!
