It Beauty and the BeastThe prequel series has ceased to exist. We don’t think so. Ask about the food.

On Thursday, Feb. 10, news broke that the House of Mouse’s streaming service had chosen to scrap the highly anticipated series, which was set to take place prior to the events of the Beauty and the Beastfilm, the 2017 animated version. It’s basically the same movie as the classic animated cartoon. Josh Gad, who was set to revive his LeFou character alongside Luke Evans” Gaston confirmed the unimaginable news on Twitter, writing, “Sadly, ‘Tis true. We tried to make it all work but under the gun it wasn’t meant to be… for now.”

Gad went on to promise that the “characters and this story will live on, but sometimes the best intentions and reality collide and nothing can be done.”

This seems to support Deadline’s report, which claimed that the show was canceled over creative reasons. Producing delays occurred due to the inability of the music and scripts to work together. It’s said the production was already moved once before, from spring to summer.
