Beauty and the Beast Series Most Ambitious Projects For Josh Gad

It was exciting to learn that Disney gave the green light to the 8-episode Beauty and the Beast prequel for Disney+.  It was even more thrilling to learn that both Luke Evans and Josh Gad would be coming back on their roles as Gaston and LeFou.

Little has been revealed beyond a new character named “Tilly”, LeFou (Louie) stepsister.

When discussing the series, Josh Gad had this to say:

“I can tell you right now that it is one of the most ambitious projects I’ve ever been a part of. Luke and I are so excited about bringing these characters back to life alongside a brilliant and unique new talent in Briana Middleton playing this incredible new character named Tilly. Liesl Tommy, who’s our director, is planning to do some unbelievably ambitious things with this series as well as our showrunners, Adam [Horowitz] and Eddie [Kitsis], who are really, really, really going places I think audiences are not necessarily ready for. I cannot be more excited about this show. I think it’s going to be enormously special.”

The series is being written and produced by both Gad and Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz (“Once Upon a Time”).  The product is set to have an original soundtrack as well from EGOT Award-winning composer Alan Menken.

Production isn’t set to begin until spring 2022 so we have a while to wait, but we are excited to hear more and more about what this series will bring to our beloved story of Beauty and the Beast.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
