Zooey Deschanel, Rebel Wilson, and More to Sing Beauty and the Beast

Zooey Deschanel

Kraft previously worked on other live-to-film concerts at the Hollywood Bowl including, Disney's The Little Mermaid in Concert, in which Wilson played Ursula. And while the animated classic has already gone to Broadway, Disney's taking the musical to the Hollywood Bowl in May.

She said: 'Performing Beauty And The Beast, one of my favorite movies growing up, in a special concert at the legendary Hollywood Bowl, is a dream come true.

Deschanel is expected to perform alongside all-star cast that boasts the likes of Kelsey Grammar (Lumiere), Taye Diggs (Gaston), Rebel Wilson (LeFou), Jane Krakowski (Mrs. Potts) and singer-songwriter Anthony Evans as Beast.

The event will combine images from the film along with live music, singers, dancers, and projections, sure to honor the spirit of the film in a memorable, original way.

"I love this film, I love Alan Menken and I loved Jerry Orbach - the title song, as sung by Angela Lansbury, makes me cry to this day", added Frasier star Grammer.

The new live production - which is being produced by the team that brought to life Disney's The Little Mermaid in Concert in 2016 - will capitalize on the popularity of the 2017 live action reboot, which grossed $1.2 billion worldwide. I'm giddy with excitement at the opportunity to finally sing the role.

"The Little Mermaid at the Hollywood Bowl was an fantastic and unforgettable event".

Knocking off one more celebrity from your Disney princess wishlist, Zooey Deschanel is the newest live-action Belle. Our creative mantra for this show has been: 'We want our audience to be our guests. The show even grabbed Kourtney Kardashian's attention, who told her Instagram followers at the time that "this is how you see a movie". Tickets for the two-night event are scheduled to go on sale Friday via Ticketmaster, with prices expected to run between $42.50-$199.50.
