‘Beauty and the Beast’: Josh Groban plays the beast in the ABC special

The hairy half of ABC Beauty and the Beast Special will at least have a nice singing voice: Josh Groban will play the beast at the upcoming 30th anniversary celebration, the broadcaster announced on Friday.

The chart-topper, who also recorded a song for 2017 Beauty and the Beast Live-action film starring Emma Watson – joins HER, who was announced to play Belle back in July. Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration is billed as a “reimagining” of the classic 1991 animated film, with a mix of animation and live-action performances taped in front of a live audience. It will air Thursday, December 15 at 8:7c on ABC and stream the next day on Disney+.

Along with Groban, Rita Moreno (One day at a time) joins the cast as narrator for the evening and “takes viewers on a journey through the classic enchanted tale,” according to the official description. Also Tony contestant Joshua Henry (SeeBroadway’s carousel) will play the brutal villain Gaston. Hamish Hamilton will direct the special, with Jon M. Chu serving as executive producer.

Additional castings will be announced at a later date. Are you happy to bring Groban and Co. with you Beauty and the Beast to live? Click on the comments to share your thoughts.
