‘Beauty and the Beast’ Prequel Series Delayed Indefinitely at Disney+

[ Written on February 11 2022 by admin ]

The show starring Josh Gad and Luke Evans is on hold for scheduling and creative conflicts.

The “Beauty and the Beast” prequel TV series at Disney+ is on hold indefinitely, an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.

The hold is said to be for creative reasons as well as scheduling issues.

Josh Gad and Luke Evans, who starred in the live-action “Beauty and the Beast” movie, are both executive producing the prequel series in addition to reprising their on-camera roles. And actually, Gad is co-showrunning the show with “Once Upon a Time” bosses Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz.

Other executive producers on the limited series include Liesl Tommy and legendary Disney songwriter Alan Menken. Tommy was set to direct the premiere episode of the ABC Signature series, with Glenn Slater writing the lyrics for the first episode.

Set in the iconic kingdom of “Beauty and the Beast” years before Beast and Belle’s epic romance, the prequel series was set to follow Gaston (Evans) and LeFou (Gad) as they set off with LeFou’s stepsister, Tilly (Briana Middleton), 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, the show’s description reads. 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.

Earlier this week, Rita Ora was cast as “a fugitive with surprising abilities who carries with her a secret that could potentially affect an entire kingdom.” Source: The Wrap

Beauty and the Beast: Luke Evans Addresses Gaston Prequel Training Rumors

[ Written on December 22 2021 by admin ]

Comic Book: Beauty and the Beast star Luke Evans addressed those Gaston prequel rumors. Comicbook.com’s Chris Killian spoke to the actor in promotion of Crossing Swords on Hulu. During the conversation, the topic of Evans’ impressive fitness regimen during the pandemic. It turns out those muscles are not for Gaston, but rather for Apple’s Echo 3. The actor is playing a special forces member and that means he had to bulk up. Killian was very complimentary of his physique but asked about a secret superhero role that could be in the works. While that’s not the case for Evans as he clarified that it’s all just for that Apple series. But, it’s also helped his mental health throughout the past two events. Check out what he had to say down below:

“I’m just a bad cook, I couldn’t eat my own food,” he joked. “Starved myself. I first primarily did this because keeping fit keeps my feeling mentally healthy. It was something to do, something to focus on. I tried to stay in shape as much as possible because these jobs I’m doing right now require a certain amount of physical capability. Weirdly, everyone thinks I’m training for Gaston but I’m training for the thing I’m doing right now. This is Echo 3, which I’m doing in Colombia, where I am right now. He’s a delta forces, special forces commando. These guys are machines and you can throw them anywhere in the world and they’re able to survive. There’s a certain physicality that comes with that. It all helps because I’m going into this show playing Gaston again. It’ll help, I’m sure”

However, the actor previously speculated on another action-heavy role that he would love a crack at with Mirror.

“I think I’ve cut my teeth very well in movies I’ve done and I’ve enjoyed every second of it,” he said back then. “t’s a phenomenal job, a phenomenal franchise, an incredible role. I have to say though, it’s a daunting task for any actor to play the role after Daniel Craig. No one knows what’s happening. It’s a very secretive process and it’s a wonderful role. I would jump at the chance, as would many actors in my position, so we shall see. It will be an exciting casting moment for the Bond production and I wish whoever gets it the best of luck.”
