Even though Disney has several films scheduled for release this year—including Avengers: Infinity War, Solo: A Star Wars Story, and such colon-less titles as The Incredibles 2—the media conglomerate is already waxing nostalgic on the remake of one of its classics.
According to a press release, Disney will host two live Beauty And The Beast concerts at the Hollywood Bowl this May. Though the 1991 animated film got the live-action hybrid treatment just last year, Disney is still eager to invite more fans to be its guests ahead of the Memorial Day weekend. Zooey Deschanel will follow in Paige O’Hara and Emma Watson’s footsteps as Belle, while Kelsey Grammer has been aptly appointed to sing “Be Our Guest” as Lumiere. Taye Diggs, who’s performed in Broadway productions of Rent and Hedwig And The Angry Inch, will lend his voice to Gaston, while Jane Krakowski will sing the tale of “Beauty And The Beast” as Mrs. Potts. Pitch Perfect franchise star Rebel Wilson is singing LeFou’s part, while former Voice contestant Anthony Evans will perform “Evermore,” from the 2017 live-action movie, as the titular Beast.
The concerts are scheduled for Friday, May 25 and Saturday, May 26 at The Hollywood Bowl; tickets go on sale Friday, March 16 at 1 p.m. ET.
