‘Beauty and the Beast’ Prequel Series in the Works at Disney+

Six Episodes Expected

Streamer Disney+ is reportedly developing a new “Beauty and the Beast” prequel series from “Once Upon a Time” ceartors Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz based on the 2017 live-action remake, which will see Luke Evans and Josh Gad reprise their roles from remake as Gaston and LeFou, respectively.

The project is said to be a six-episode musical limited series set before the events of the movie, with composer Alan Menken in talks to join the show. Menken composed the music for both the 1991 animated film and the 2007 remake, along with numerous other Disney production. Kitsis, Horowitz, and Gad will collectively work as showrunners, writers, and executive producers on the project.

No other stars from the film — like Emma Watson and Dan Stevens — are currently attached, though sources say there is a possibility that they could pop in for a guest spot.
