The live-action series of ‘Beauty and the Beast’ has been canceled by Disney + until further notice. The show, which was going to be centered around Gaston’s characters (Luke Evans) and LeFou (Josh Gad), was a prequel set in the live-action universe directed by Bill Condon in 2017.
The cancellation comes after various production delays, making it impossible to start shooting in the summer of 2022 as planned. Scripts and original music not quite readyand filming had already been pushed back from spring to summer. Postponing filming to the fall was not possible due to the cast’s scheduleso the cancellation has been inevitable.
This opens a door to hope, since It has not been a direct decision of the study but different unforeseen events that have caused the suspension. In principle, when the actors have a gap again, they should go back to the production plan.
