Award-winning composer Alan Menken has let slip more details about the much-anticipated Beauty and the Beast live action series on Disney+.
In an interview with Variety, Menken – who recently became only the 16th person in history to win an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Award (known in the industry as EGOT) – revealed the new series, which is a prequel to the original, will be called Little Town.
The title is a reference to lyrics from the 2017 live action film’s opening number, Belle, sung by Emma Watson.
Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz will co-write and run the series, alongside co-writer and actor Josh Gad, who will reprise his role as LeFou.
Meanwhile Luke Evans, who played the villainous Gaston, is also set to return.
