Lumière first appeared in Disney movie “Beauty and the Beast” in 1991 as faithful servant of “the Beast”. He is the Casanova of all candelabras! He is a suave, vivacious gentleman and as any gracious host would, treats Belle with warmth and to a show-stopping number “Be Our Guest”.
The kind candle-man also appears in other films, television programmes, video games and in Disneyland theme parks. He will appear again in 2017 in a live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast, played by Ewan Mc Gregor.
I think Lumière is a funny guy that just had to be transformed into LEGO somehow. It was a personal challenge to use only pearl gold parts. Pearl gold is much more limited in availability and shape variety than for example yellow LEGO and thus it was a puzzle to construct Lumière. But it was a lot of fun to make him and I am very pleased with how he turned out.
