PHOTOS, VIDEO: Full Cast Returns to ‘Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage’ Show at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

While “Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage” returned to Disney’s Hollywood Studios last summer following a yearlong absence related to the pandemic, it returned with most (but not all) of its cast, missing a number of smaller supporting dancers and singers. But today, the show quietly returned with its full pre-pandemic cast, ready to share the tale as old as time once more.

With thism the show has officially returned to its pre-pandemic state. Distancing was largely removed back in April, although some blocking still remained set apart. Characters such as the third blonde are also part of the show once more.

Belle still only hugs the Beast rather than kissing him at his death,

And all dancer couples now hug and embrace as part of their choreography.
