Now, Disney is inviting fans of the film to be their guest this summer as they prepare to put on a live Beauty and the Beast concert featuring a celebrity-filled cast at the Hollywood Bowl, a Los Angeles-based venue. On May 25 and 26, audiences will get to watch an A-list cast perform the music from the Disney classic at the Hollywood Bowl in L.A.

"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 said in a statement released Monday morning.

Deschanel and Grammer are being joined by Taye Diggs as Gaston, Rebel Wilson as LeFou, Jane Krakowski as Mrs. Potts, and "The Voice" alum 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. The other songs created for the live-action Beauty and the Beast may also be performed. He's "harbored jealousy of every actor who ever played Gaston", and now is so grateful to have his turn. I'm giddy with excitement at the opportunity to finally sing the role.


Disney put on a live performance of The Little Mermaid at the California arena two years ago, which featured singer Sara Bareilles as Ariel and Wilson in the role of Ursula.

"The Little Mermaid at the Hollywood Bowl was an awesome and unforgettable event", said Menken. "I am beyond excited to be a part of what will be another fantastic evening".

Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. PT.

Following the film's success, this spring the Hollywood Bowl will be putting on a live-action concert for two nights that will pay tribute to the film's music. The show even grabbed Kourtney Kardashian's attention, who told her Instagram followers at the time that "this is how you see a movie".
