Beauty And The Beast, only to be given a blink-and-you’ll-miss it scene where LeFou (Josh Gad) dances with another man, right?So perhaps we were wrong to get our hopes up when the studio announced it’d be making a spin-off series about LeFou and his barrel-chested pal Gaston (Luke Evans).

It almost felt like they might use it as an opportunity to right the wrongs of the film, to explore LeFou’s queerness in a more direct and thoughtful way.Not to mention, it’d provide Evans with a solid leading role.

We’re always happy to see more from the hunky gay actor, and his take on Gaston was one of the few bright spots in the remake, which doesn’t hold a Lumière candle to the animated original.Related: Luke Evans proudly poses in next to nothing — and the Internet can’t look awayAlas, those hopes were dashed earlier this year when Disney announced the spin-off was postponed indefinitely, citing vague “creative and scheduling issues.” It was the sort of question that had a lot of people scratching their heads, wondering what might’ve been going on behind the scenes.After all, the studio has pushed forward on live-action adaptations of everything from Pinocchio (which Evans also co-stars in) to Peter Pan to The Little Mermaid, so it was odd that this was the project they pumped the brakes on.
