Luke Evans & Josh Gad to Star in 'Beauty & The Beast' Prequel Series for Disney+

Luke Evans and Josh Gad will be reprising their roles as Gaston and LeFou in a Beauty and the Beast prequel series that is currently being developed for the Disney+ streaming service.

Josh is billed as a co-creator, writer, and showrunner alongside Once Upon a Time creators Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz.

THR reports that the limited series will be a “six-episode musical event” and composer Alan Menken is in talks to write new music for the show. While no other cast members from the Beauty and the Beast live-action movie are confirmed to return, there’s the possibility that they could make guest appearances.

Josh was previously working with Eddy and Adam on the Muppets Live Another Day comedy series for Disney+, but that show got scrapped. This new idea was born from their time working on that show!

'Once Upon a Time' Creators Are Developing a Series Set in Disney Fairytale Universe

ABC is developing a new series called Epic with the team behind the hit series Once Upon a Time.

The new series is being created by Once Upon a Time‘s executive producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz and writer Brigette Hales.

Deadline reports that the show is a “romantic anthology series set in the fairytale universe of Disney.”

“Taking place in a Disney-like Enchanted Forest, it will center on a whole new set of new heroes, villains, princes, princesses and all manner of magical beings. While it will pay homage to the classic signposts we’re all familiar with from the stories we grew up with, Epic will endeavor to create a whole new batch of characters as it explores love in all its forms,” the outlet reported.

The new show will not be connected to Once Upon a Time.
