Bruno Mars

If you've ever thought that Bruno Mars' voice and charisma was meant for the Disney sphere, your wishes are coming true. The superstar and Disney announced on Thursday (Feb. 6) a joint deal for an upcoming "music-themed theatrical narrative."

Mars will both star in and produce the film, but the plot and music details have yet to be revealed. The crooner did, however, take to social media to share the exciting news. The clip shows Mars performing the Disney classic "When You Wish Upon a Star" on the piano, before raising his fist up in victory.

The caption featured lyrics from the song, as well as the hashtag "#MarsMeetsTheMouse." This isn't Mars' first experience with Disney. Back in 2014, he was a featured voice in the popular animated flick, Rio 2.

See Mars' announcement below, and stay tuned for more details regarding his upcoming film.
