Beauty And The Beast: Through her social networks, artist Rita Ora announced that she is slated to act in Little Town, the supposed official title of the Beauty and the Beast spin-off series on Disney+.
Known for lending her voice to feature films such as Fifty Shades of Grey, Fast and Furious 6 and Pokémon: Detective Pikachu, and serving as one of the panel judges on The X-Factor UK and The Masked Singer, Rita Ora is yet another name confirmed for the limited musical inspired by the movie Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens.
In a publication, the singer could not hide her excitement at joining the cast of the Disney production and said she was very “excited” to start recording, revealing that she was very “grateful” to have fulfilled a childhood dream and never imagined that a day could act in a project adapted from one of the most popular fairy tales.
