If you fell in love with Belle and her cursed captor all over again because of Disney’s live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast, get ready to sing along with Ariana Grande and John Legend’s cover of the theme song when the movie hits Netflix this September.
Released in theaters back in March, the film took in more than $1.2 billion worldwide, making it the highest-grossing live-action movie musical in history, the highest-grossing film of 2017 (so far), and the 10th highest-grossing film of all time. (Clearly, we weren’t the only ones who loved it.)
The movie starred Emma Watson and Dan Stevens as the titular Beauty and the Beast, with a supporting ensemble that included Luke Evans, Josh Gad, Kevin Kline, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Audra McDonald, Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson, and Stanley Tucci. Thanks to that stellar cast (along with the picture-perfect sets and magnificent costumes), the movie was more than just a retelling of a beloved fairy tale — it was a dream-come-true for kids and adults alike.
Disney plans to remove all of their content from Netflix by the end of 2018 in order to launch their own streaming platforms, but you’ll have plenty of time to watch Beauty and the Beast a few hundred times before it disappears. Start prepping your viewing party now — the movie begins streaming on Netflix on September 19.
