Josh Gad and Luke Evans will reportedly be reprising their roles from 2017’s billion-dollar hit Beauty & The Beast for a new prequel series for Disney+ according to TheHollywoodReporter.
Streaming service Disney+ is teaming with Once Upon a Time creators Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz as well as stars Josh Gad and Luke Evans for a Beauty and the Beast prequel limited series to the 2017 feature film in which the latter pair starred.
The untitled limited series will be a six-episode musical event, with composer Alan Menken in talks to return as well. Sources say the project, which is currently in the early development stage, will take place well before the events of the film and also expand theBeauty and the Beast universe. 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.
Eddy Kitsis, Adam Horowitz, and Josh Gad had previously worked together on the scrapped series Muppets Live Another Day.
Gad is also attached to star alongside Rick Moranis in Shrunk, a soft-reboot of the Honey, I Shrunk The Kids franchise with director Joe Johnston (Captain America: The First Avenger) returning.
Shrunk is also set for Disney+.
