The live-action Beauty and the Beast is *almost* in theaters for us all to enjoy but in the meantime, we’re learning more about Josh Gad’s character LeFou in the film.

Beauty and the Beast will be in theaters soon and as one of the most-anticipated films of the year, we’ve heard A LOT about Emma Watson as Belle. Well now, we’re getting information on one of the other characters in the film: LeFou, played by Josh Gad.

At the Los Angeles premiere of Beauty and the Beast, Josh Gad talked to The Hollywood Reporter about his character LeFou (Gaston’s BFF), including how the character is different from the original film and the announcement that he would be Disney’s first LGBTQ character.

Emma Watson also brought unique characteristics to Belle that weren’t as obvious in the original. So it seems like the film took some liberties with the characters and we’re excited to see this new interpretation of the story!

Watch the latest trailer for Beauty and the Beast below:

Check out Disney’s Beauty and the Beast in theaters beginning March 17th. We’re beyond excited for this magical film.
