VIDEO: Anna Kendrick Channels Disney Princesses on SNL
Anna Kendrick hosted last night's episode of Saturday Night Live. Kendrick began the night channeling Belle from Disney's Beauty and the Beast. Before breaking out into song, she stated, "I got my start in musical theatre. When I was ten, my dad took me to see Beauty on the Beast on Broadway and I just knew I wanted to be up there, so to be here on this New York stage is so incredibly exciting. It just feels like something out of a story book." Later on, she did a Little Mermaid skit in which she played Ariel and sang modern day pop songs. Check below to watch both clips!
Kendrick has just finished filming the movie versions of Sondheim's Into the Woods and The Last Five Years. She can also be seen in Happy Christmas, Pitch Perfect, What to Expect When You're Expecting, The Twilight Saga, and more. She also appeared on stage in the Off-Broadway production of A Little Night Music (2003) and Broadway's High Society (1998).
Since its inception in 1975, "SNL" has launched the careers of many of the brightest comedy performers of their generation; and, as The New York Times noted on the occasion of the show's Emmy-winning 25th Anniversary special in 1999: "In Defiance of both time and show business convention, 'SNL' is still the most pervasive influence on the art of comedy in contemporary culture." At the close of the century, "Saturday Night Live" placed seventh on Entertainment Weekly's list of the Top 100 Entertainers of the past fifty years.
