The story of LeFou and Gaston's friendship would be told in the prequel. 

Josh Gad, 41, and Evans will reprise their 2017 roles as LeFou and Gaston.

To bring the tale of those two people and new characters to the movie was thrilling, Evans added.

Gad said the show's high cost was causing continual delays.

We can convey this narrative well without breaking the bank.

When you're doing something as huge and ambitious as a 'Beauty and the Beast' prequel, it's expensive,” Gad remarked.

Despite the difficulties, Gad is still optimistic that the series will air.

I believe that will ultimately be the course of action. I really hope we can achieve it. I am aware of our continued keen attention.
