A Gaston prequel series is in the works at Disney+.
The House of Mouse’s subscription service, which arrives in the UK on 24th March, has made no secret of its plans to build on its brands and franchises to create original content that will have in-built audiences. And so, with Monsters, Inc. and Rogue One prequels in the pipeline at the platform, Disney is repeatedly also working on a series set before The Beauty and the Beast.
The show, which is now in development, will see Luke Evans and Josh Gad reprise their roles as Gaston and LeFou from the 2017 live action film. First reported by THR, sources close to the project have confirmed to Deadline that it is in development from ABC Signature Studios.
Once Upon A Time creators Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz are behind the programme. It is co-written by Gad, Kitsis and Horowitz, with a six-episode musical event planned. The trio will executive produce the series, along with Evans.
Disney has not commented on the reports.
