'Beauty & The Beast' Prequel Series Put on Hold at Disney+

The outlet says that the reasons include creative elements and scheduling challenges with its cast.

Production was set to kick off in the spring, but it was pushed to the summer in Europe due to the expectant beautiful weather. However, sources note that some creative elements were not far enough along to accommodate that timeline. Scheduling challenges with the cast also are a factor as some talent had hard outs for other projects beginning in August.

With the window of availability shrinking, Disney+ opted to put the series on hold for the time being.

In addition to Josh and Luke, Rita Ora, Briana Middleton, Fra Fee and Jelani Alladin, were also set to star.

Rita‘s casting was just announced this week.
