Josh Gad and Luke Evans Will Star in Disney's Villainous Beauty and the Beast Prequel Show
Get excited, Disney-villain fans! The live-action Beauty and the Beast film has inspired a prequel series dedicated to Gaston and LeFou, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The six-episode Disney series will star Luke Evans (Gaston) and Frozen‘s Josh Gad (LeFou) in their previous roles and expand on the world of Beauty and the Beast by giving us a glimpse at Gaston’s past. Just like the original Disney movie and 2017’s live-action reboot, the series will be set to musical numbers, and you know what they say: no one sings like Gaston.
Gad is also signed on as a writer, cocreator, and showrunner, and Once Upon a Time‘s Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz will join him as executive producers. While Disney has yet to announce a premiere date for the series, we can only hope that means there’s time for even more of the live-action cast to sign on as part of the project.
