Encore! Kristen Bell reunites high school theatre casts for Disney+
James R | On 24, Aug 2019
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:
