Disney’s 1991 classic Beauty and The Beast is getting remade into a live action movie and it looks like there will be a modern twist incorporated.
The remake will include Disney’s first ever openly gay character. Remember Gaston, not him, but his sidekick LeFou. The movie’s subplot will be LeFou’s crush on Gaston. The movie’s director, Bill Condon says “LaFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day want to kiss Gaston”. He also revealed that there’s a “nice, exclusively gay moment” at the end.
Beauty and The Beast will be in theaters on March 17th.
