TikTok’s ‘Ratatouille’ Musical Premiered & Fans Are Loving The Superstar Performances
The first-ever musical created on TikTok finally got its big debut. ICYMI, a TikTok trend saw users banding together in inspiration to create a fake musical based on the 2007 Disney Pixar flick Ratatouille in the fall of 2020. The official musical came to fruition on Friday, Jan. 1, and fans are loving it. Whether you've seen it already or want a sneak peek at the "Ratatousical," these video clips from Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical will give you joy.
Although Broadway has been closed since March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, creatives couldn't wait to hop on the trend and create a real star-worthy experience. The cast of Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical includes Tituss Burgess as Remy, Adam Lambert as Remy's brother Emile, Ashley Park as human chef Colette, and Wayne Brady as Remy and Emile's dad Django.
The musical began after original songs, lyrics, and ideas from fans on TikTok swelled into a full-blown creative trend. Emily Jacobsen (Em Jaccs on TikTok) wrote the original “Remy the Ratatouille” song for TikTok before it turned into a trend on the app. Other creators who added a lot to the trend are composer Daniel Mertzlufft and Jess Siswick, who made the playbill.
