Luke Evans and Josh Gad are said to be reprising their respective roles as Gaston and LeFou from the 2017 live-action film. Emma Watson and Dan Stevens, who played Belle and the Beast, aren't currently expected to be heavily involved other than in a potential guest spot.

And composer Alan Menken, who scored the original animated movie, will return to write the music.

He revealed to Variety that the series would be titled 'Little Town'.

Once Upon a Time creators Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz will write the series and act as show runners, it was previously reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

Further details about the series are to be confirmed.

Beauty and the Beast was first adapted by Disney in 1991 with an animated movie, which was nominated for seven Oscars, winning two.

A live action adaption in 2017 made over $1 billion at the box office while a musical version has played both Broadway and the West End.
