Pop powerhouse Ariana Grande may have won a thumbs up from Celine Dion when she took to ‘The Tonight Show’ to impersonate the ‘My Heart Will Go On’ belter, but we’re curious to see how the pop legend’s fans will feel about a reported forthcoming cover of another one of her most beloved hits.
Word has it Grande is set to tackle Dion and Peabo Bryson‘s Academy and Grammy Award winning hit ‘Beauty and Beast’ – the title track to the 1991 animated version of the film. Now, as Disney fans prepare for the March 2017 live action adaptation of the classic, they’re greeted with news its soundtrack is set for a revamp as well:
On Tuesday, Ari took to Instagram to announce (with a wilted rose emoji, no less) that she will sing on the official soundtrack for Disney’s live-action version of Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens. Hits Daily Double reports that Ari and John Legend will record a 2017 remake of the Disney classic’s title track first made famous by Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson.
Disney will release the deluxe edition soundtrack for its live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast March 17, 2017, the same day the film arrives in theatres.
A two-CD version will be available, while Disney is also offering another deluxe version of the soundtrack with an exclusive 12” x 12” lithograph featuring original imagery from the film. That edition, according to Disney, will ship on or around a March 10 release date.
Before fans can get their hands on the tracklist for the film’s official soundtrack, they’re invited to check out its trailer:
