Last year Disney gifted the world with the live-action remake of its tale as old as time, Beauty and the Beast. Now a year removed from the project, Disney has announced the company will be developing a live concert based off the story, which will be led by New Girl's Zooey Deschanel as Belle.

Accompanying Deschanel will be the likes of Kelsey Grammer as Lumiere, Rebel Wilson as LeFou, Jane Krakowski as Mrs. Potts, Taye Diggs as Gaston, and Anthony Evans as the Beast.
Directing the project will be Richard Kraft, who was also responsible for Disney's live concert version of The Little Mermaid, also starring Rebel Wilson.
The Beauty and the Beast concert will be a two-day event taking place at the Hollywood Bowl, just as last year's Little Mermaid was.
Unfortunately, there have not been any reports suggesting a TV network broadcasting the event just yet, so as of now if fans are interested in viewing the event they might just have to buy tickets to the limited-time concert!
Tickets for the event will go on sale this Friday, March 16th on Ticketmaster.
