An untitled prequel series of Disney’s 2017 live action Beauty and the Beast movie is being developed for Disney+. Luke Evans and Josh Gad are returning to their roles as Gaston and LeFou respectively as the series is set to explore their origin stories.
The 6-episode series will be produced by ABC Signature Studios and is set to be a musical like the film. Edward Kitsis, Adam Horowitz and Gad will co-write and executive produce the project.
Kitsis and Horowitz may be familiar to many Disney and fairytale fans from their roles as co-creators and executive producers of ABC’s Once Upon a Time, which also featured storylines based upon Beauty and the Beast.
