Luke Evans Updates BEAUTY AND THE BEAST Spin-Off Series Saying It’s “Going To Happen” But “It’s Just On Hold” – GeekTyrant

Luke Evans played the perfect Gaston in Disney’s live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast. He was a perfect mix of charming and hilarious with obnoxious and rude, and along with his co-star Josh Gad, who played his sidekick LeFou, they created a team worthy of a Disney+ spin-off series. It was announced a while ago, but it’s been a while since we’ve heard an update on the project.

Evans was recently asked about the series in an interview with Weekly entertainmentAnd he said:

“It’s been put on hold. We just want to make sure it’s the absolute best it can be, and if that means we just have to wait a little longer to refine certain bits of it, that’s what we’re going to do.” because this is a very important legacy. We want to honor these characters with the best story we can deliver. It’s just been put on hold. It’s going to happen. We’re very excited about it. At some point in the near future it will happen.”

Evans says he and Gad talk all the time. They had always wanted to work together, and when? Beauty and the Beastthe movie, happened, they were looking for something else to collaborate with.

“We came up with the idea of ​​what it would be like to delve into Gaston and LeFou’s past and how they met and who they were and why they became the people we meet in the movie that we all know and love? That opened up different cans of worms it was an exciting experience navigating through a story of those two people and also new characters and then bringing them to the point where you meet them in the movie there are many ways it could go so that’s where we’ve been so far and hopefully where we’ll go in the future.”

The Emma Watson-led Beauty and the Beast (2017) caused a stir when it was revealed that Gad’s LeFou was gay in the film, although many critics, including the LGBTQ community at large, felt that element had been buried. Even Gad says he didn’t think the moment went far enough. When asked if this element is something he hopes will be explored in the prequel series, Evans, who is openly gay, says, “Who knows? I’m not sure.” He added:

“There are so many things about these two characters that we don’t really know, about their origin stories. Were they always these creatures or were they different? It’s kind of like, nobody is born bad. Things happen, you make wrong decisions, or you choose to make a decision that will affect the rest of your life i think that was where we went with the idea and concept so i hope one day we can tell that story for you guys .”

I hope the series comes. Evans and Gad are a nice duo in these roles, and I think it would be a very entertaining series. Do you hope the Gaston and LeFou series are made?
