Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide, said, “The opportunity to ‘borrow’ one of the most classic Disney scores – and build our second season of HSMTMTS around it – is like having your wish upon a star granted.”
“The outpouring of love and support for season one has been incredibly exciting, and I’m thrilled that the Wildcats are putting on ‘Beauty and the Beast’ in season two,” said Tim Federle. “It was one of the first Broadway shows I ever saw, when I was 14, and it’s got all the perfect metaphors for the high school experience: Do people judge me for how I look? What is true love? Will I achieve the future I dream of? And, perhaps most importantly, it’s got dancing forks.”
