Celine Dion to release new 'Beauty and the Beast' song

Beauty and the Beast is already shaping up to be one of the biggest releases of the year, and the movie just added a superstar singer to its soundtrack.

Celine Dion will perform an all-new song for Disney’s live-action remake, 25 years after recording the theme tune for the animation.

The track, 'How Does A Moment Last Forever', is one of three new songs recorded alongside old favourites for the film, which stars Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as the Beast.

'How Does A Moment Last Forever' is a trademark Celine ballad and features throughout the film before debuting in full during the end credits.

It's been written by legendary composer Alan Menken, who wrote the original Beauty and the Beast theme, and veteran lyricist Tim Rice.

 

"Being a part of the original Beauty and the Beast was such a magical experience in my life, and I'm truly honored to be a part of this film again," Celine said.

Beauty and the Beast is released in Australian cinemas on March 23.

Ariana Grande and John Legend have also been lined up to re-record the Beauty and the Beast theme made famous by Celine and Peabo Bryson.
