    A new musical series is officially coming to Disney+ and will focus on our favorite unlikely duo, Gaston and LeFou.

    Luke Evans and Josh Gad will be reprising their iconic roles, since the story is a prequel to the 2017 live-action film.

    Josh is also taking on the role of writer and executive producer alongside Once Upon a Time creators Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz.

    Fans will meet a new character named Tilly, who is LeFou's stepsister and will be played by newcomer Briana Middleton.

    Disney Branded Television president Gary Marsh gave fans a sneak peek of what's to come. "For anyone who's ever wondered how a brute like Gaston and a goof like LeFou could have ever become friends and partners, or how a mystical enchantress came to cast that fateful spell on the prince-turned-beast, this series will finally provide those answers…and provoke a whole new set of questions," he said.

    While production won't start until spring 2022, I can tell you I'm already beyond excited for this one, because there's honestly no one quite like Gaston.
