After rumblings about it happening for the past year, a limited Beauty and the Beast musical series is heading to Disney+ with Luke Evans (Gaston) and Josh Gad (LeFou) set to reprise their roles. The series will chronologically take place before the events of the 2017 live-action film and will also star Briana Middleton (The Tender Bar) as LeFou’s step-sister Tilly. Alan Menken will provide an original soundtrack.
“Set in the iconic kingdom of Beauty and the Beast years before the Beast and Belle’s epic romance, the series will follow Gaston and LeFou as they set off with LeFou’s step-sister, Tilly, after a surprising revelation from her past comes to light, sending the unlikely trio off on an unexpected journey filled with romance, comedy, and adventure,” says Disney. “While the mysteries of the past are uncovered and the dangers of the present grow, old friends and new enemies reveal that this familiar kingdom harbors many secrets.”
