The original Beauty and the Beast never really explored Gaston and LeFou's joint backstory. They were best buddies, and that was all you really needed to know. While the live-action remake dove a little more into their past, there's still a lot to explore. As io9 has pointed out, we need a Gaston prequel in our lives. Luckily, one 12-year-old kid is here to answer our prayers, with a story about how Gaston and LeFou met.

This week we've heard that Disney will be looking at "spinoff and prequel" ideas for the live-action Beauty and the Beast movie that has just come out. But they don't need to look at other options, because there is one obvious and perfect choice: A movie about Gaston.
In the original Beauty and the Beast, the reason everyone loves Gaston is basically because he's "hot". (I put that in quotes because a real-life person with those proportions would be TERRIFYING.) But Luke Evans says there's more to the good-looking villain in the new live-action adaptation than what was on screen in 1991.
