Disney’s Live-Action ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Now Streaming on Disney+. The live-action film Beauty and the Beast was released in 2017, grossing over $1 billion at the global box office and won over audiences world-wide despite initial concerns over adapting the animated feature film into a live-action film.
Disney+ has also ordered a 6-episode musical prequel series for Beauty and the Beast, called “Little Town.” The new series will feature Gaston (Luke Evans) and LeFou (Josh Gad) with rumors that Emma Watson (Belle) and Dan Stevens (Beast/Prince Adam) may appear in guest roles. It is currently unknown if other cast members such as Ewan McGregor (Lumiere), Kevin Klein (Maurice), Emma Thompson (Mrs. Potts), Ian McKellan (Cogsworth), and others will join the 6-episode series. Also rumored to return is Oscar winning composer and Disney Legend, Alan Menken.
