We know Beauty and the Beast‘s Belle can sing…but have you ever seen her pick up a guitar?
ABC has released some new promos for the upcoming special Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration (airing Thursday December 15 at 8/7c) and gives us a sneak peek at Grammy-winner HER as Belle and chart-topping Josh Groban as the Beast. The special is billed as a “reimagining” of the classic Disney animated film, with a mix of animation and live-action performances taped in front of a live audience.
In Belle’s video, which you can watch above, Belle from HER straps on a guitar and uses a plectrum decorated with roses to play a few notes before singing a line from the musical’s title track. In Beast’s video, embedded below, Groban’s Beast dons his signature cloak and looks at himself in a mirror before singing his own line from the title track. (Groban’s full “Beast” mode will not be revealed until the special airs.)
