There is going to be a new character in the upcoming Beauty and the Beast movie, and it will be played by Stanley Tucci.

Tucci will play Cadenza the grand piano, Variety reports, a character described as a “neurotic maestro.” Tucci as Cadenza will be joined by Emma Watson as Belle, Ewan McGregor as Lumiere the candlestick and Ian McKellen as Cogsworth the clock, among the rest of a star-studded cast.

The live-action Disney movie is set to be released March 17, 2017. It is unclear how fans will be able to wait that long to see the film.
