The two actors played villain Gaston and his sidekick LeFou in the 2017 live-action rehashing of the beloved Disney animated film, and now they are returning to the romantic fairytale for an origin story.
Luke and Josh have signed on to a six-episode musical limited series for Disney+, with longtime Disney composer Alan Menken behind the new music. According to The Hollywood Reporter, none of the other cast members from the latest "Beauty and the Beast" film, like leading lady Emma Watson, who played Belle, and her Beast counterpart Dan Stevens, have confirmed contracts for the show.
Evans is taking on a more behind-the-scenes role in the spin-off as the co-creator, as well as a writer and producer. He will be penning the scripts with Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, the creators of fairytale-themed TV show "Once Upon a Time".
