Okay, Beauty and the Beast fans, we’ve got some BIG news to share with you!
Remember when we told you about the Beauty and the Beast special that was in the works, starring Josh Groban as the Beast and H.E.R. as Belle? Then we all got excited when Disney confirmed Shania Twain as Mrs. Potts and Martin Short as Lumiere. Well, we’ve got a first look at the special now!
ABC just released a poster for Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration, with H.E.R. and Josh Groban! The special will be part animation and part live-action and taped in front of a live audience.
