Encore! Kristen Bell reunites high school theatre casts for Disney+
Staff Reporter | On 24, Aug 2019Reading time: 1 mins
Disney is getting the band back together for its new original series, Encore!, and Kristen Bell will be the one doing the reuniting.
The Good Place star, and self-diagnosed musical theatre junkie, will exec-produce the series, which brings together former cast mates of a high school musical, tasking them with re-creating their original performance in a high school reunion like no other. Emotions run high as the former students face faded friendships, former flames, self-doubt, and killer choreography. Through it all, these unlikely groups of friends – with the help of Broadway’s best – just might pull off a standing-ovation-worthy performance of beloved musicals such as The Sound of Music, Beauty and the Beast, Annie and more.
The series will be available on Disney+ when it launches on 12th November in the US – but, at present, not in the UK. Whether it will be available via existing UK subscription service DisneyLife or even Sky, which has a deal with Disney in the UK, is not yet clear.
Here’s the trailer:
