Rebel Wilson transforms into LeFou for Beauty and the Beast: Live in Concert

We didn’t think we could love anyone other than Josh Gad in the role of Beauty and the Beast‘s LeFou, but Rebel Wilson might have just changed that.

Because the actress and comedian has transformed herself into Gaston’s sidekick (and lover, let’s face it) for Beauty and the Beast: Live in Concert.

The live musical spectacular took place this weekend at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, and Disney fans were totally delighted with the cast’s performance.

Admitting the experience was ‘thrilling but risky’, Rebel shared a clip from the show on Instagram and thanked fans for their support.

“Can not tell you how thrilling it is to get up on a bunker in the middle of Hollywood Bowl and sing a lil something!” Rebel wrote.

“It’s risky because we could fall and also it’s extremely difficult to hear up there but Taye and I are doing it for the fans! Thank you so much”.

Rebel starred alongside an equally impressive cast for the live show, including Zooey Deschanel as Belle, Kelsey Grammer as Lumiere and Jane Krakowski as Mrs Potts.

Not to take anything away from Emma Watson and co but, um, when is Disney going to bring this cast to the big screen?

Rebel’s next film role is a little different to LeFou, as the star has signed on to Taika Waititi’s World War II-era satire, Jojo Rabbit.

Rebel will join Scarlett Johansson in the movie, which follows a young recruit of the Hitler Youth who has an imaginary friend in the form of the Fuhrer himself.

Who needs Pitch Perfect 4, eh?
