Patty Cake Productions, a video company based in Orlando, Florida, has just posted a mini version of the classic Disney musical, where the characters croon Bieber’s tunes instead of the original soundtrack.
And it works amazingly well.
For instance, the song “I’ll Show You,” proves to be a satisfying replacement for the original opening track, “Belle,” while his song “Company” is a great stand-in for “Be Our Guest.”
“Beauty and the Bieber” is the brainchild of Layne Stein and Tony Wakim, who have been working on the project for 5 and a half months.
“We realized [Bieber] actually has a song called ‘Beauty And The Beat,’” Wakim told HuffPost. “Then we realized a lot of his songs fit the ‘Beauty and the Beast’ narrative.”
Stein and Wakim gathered a cast of 57 people and filmed the video on location at various Orlando landmarks that resembled a castle, a tavern and a French village.
They finished the video early Friday morning, just in time for opening day for the live-action Disney movie musical, starring Emma Watson.
Wakim hopes both Disney and Bieber appreciate the tribute.
“We don’t want to parody or poke fun,” he said. “We just wonder what musicals would sound like with other composers.”
Stein and Wakim have done similar projects in the past, including “Cinderswift,” which is “Cinderella” with Taylor Swift’s music; “The Will.Of.Oz,” a version of “The Wizard Of Oz” featuring the songs of the Black-Eyed Peas; and “Snow Spears,” which tells the story of “Snow White” using Britney Spears’ music.
Next up is “Michaelificent,” which will tell the story of “Malificent” using Michael Jackson songs.
We hope they don’t stop till we get enough.
