Beauty And The Beast TV Special Lands A Country Music Legend #Beauty #Beast #Special #Lands #Country #Music #Legend Welcome to Americanah Blog, here is the new story we have for you today:
As reported by Variety, Shania Twain is in the final stages of discussions to join the “Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration” primetime special as Mrs. Potts. The character was voiced by Angela Lansbury in the original 1991 film and voiced/played by Emma Thompson in the 2017 reboot. Potts is the talking teapot and cook of Beast’s castle in both versions of the movies. It was also confirmed that Martin Short will join the cast as Lumiere, the host of the castle, brought to life by Jerry Orbach and Ewan McGregor respectively in the previous films.
The news marks a busy autumn season for the country music star as she launches a new single, “Waking Up Dreaming,” from her upcoming studio album to be released in 2023. A Netflix documentary about her life was released over the summer, and she also performed a homecoming concert at her birthplace of Ottawa, Canada. There is no doubt about Twain’s singing prowess, which should add another dimension to the sublime work of Lansbury and Thompson. As the first non-British performer to tackle the role of the indelible Mrs. Potts, it is exciting to anticipate what she will do with the character.
