Dec 11, 2022 0 comments


Filipino-American singer H.E.R. (a.k.a. Gabriella Sarmiento Wilson) will be playing the role of Belle in the upcoming hybrid live-action and animated special of “Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration.”

“I can’t believe I get to be a part of the Beauty and the Beast legacy. The world will see a Black and Filipino Belle!” said H.E.R. in a statement. “I have always wanted to be a Disney princess… It is very surreal and I couldn’t be more grateful.”

Recently, ABC released an image of H.E.R.’s blue costume featuring an apron with the word “Bel” written in Baybayin embroidered on the piece. Pinoy fans are loving this nod to Filipino heritage with a Twitter user saying, “Proud of this Bay Area Pinay and excited to see HER in BATB!”



The two-hour reimagining of the Disney classic will weave live-action performances with the animated film in a visual directed by Jon Chu and Hamish Hamilton.

ABC’s “Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration” will be available to stream on Disney+ after its release on TV on Dec. 15.
