MY, WHAT A GUY!!! Get ready to discover the TALE AS OLD AS TIME with a twist!!! Disney is currently in pre-production for a miniseries prequel to the classic story of Beauty and the Beast. This mini 8-episode series inspired by the acclaimed 2017 Live Action musical remake will follow the backstory…. not on the titular characters….. but the story’s notable narcissistic, ruthless, and strong hunter himself “Gaston” and his trusty snide, accident-prone sidekick “LeFou”. The series will be entitled LITTLE TOWN (that notable lyric from Oscar nominated song introducing the musical’s central character BELLE).
In this new story, you will discover more about that QUIET VILLIAGE (living life EVERY DAY LIKE THE ONE BEFORE) in France. It will follow “Gaston” in his beginnings, his first meeting with “LeFou”, and more of the details on how The Enchantress tested the spoiled, selfish, and arrogant prince that caused the Enchanted Spell turning him into a “Beast” and all his servants and guests into objects. It will also introduce a brand new character “Tilly”, the stepsister of “LeFou”.
It will also star Briana Middleton as “Tilly”.
it will also include original songs written by BEAUTY AND THE BEAST’s legendary composer EGOT winner Alan Menken along with 3 time Tony nominee Glenn Slater.
No word has been said if any of the other cast members from the Live Action BEAUTY AND THE BEAST will be returning including….
Emma Watson as “Belle”,
Dan Stevens as “The Beast”,
Euan McGregor as “Lumiere”,
Emma Thompson as “Mrs. Potts”,
Kevin Kline as “Maurice”,
Ian McKellen as “Cogsworth”,
Filming will begin Spring 2022.
Who is excited?!!
