Disney's Live Action "Beauty and the Beast" Casting Update: Gugu Mbatha-Raw Joins as Plumette

Plumette - previously known as Babette or Fifi, depending which B&tB you referenced, also known as Lumiere's love interest, has now been cast. (I'm really curious to know if they're going to keep the gag with Fifi getting her feathers plucked, because live action, the subtext isn't so... "sub".)

Just in from Variety (Monday):
“Beyond the Lights” star Gugu Mbatha-Raw has been tapped to play the feather duster Plumette in Disney’s live-action adaptation of “Beauty and the Beast” starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens. 
Mbatha-Raw’s character has gone through several iterations in the Disney canon, with the flirty feather duster previously called both Babette and Fifi in other versions of the story.
