The Ratatouille musical which has been collaboratively created by a bunch of ingenious TikTokers is getting turned into a real-life, fully-fledged performance in time for New Year’s Day.

Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical will be livestreamed and is being produced by Seaview Productions – the same folks behind Slave Play, which was nominated for more Tony Awards than any other show in Broadway history. In other words: the best in the biz.

“At the height of the pandemic, while Broadway remains shuttered, a phenomenon has emerged from the hearts and minds of millions of TikTokers,” the theatre company announced.

Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical uniquely lets Gen Z know that Broadway is watching and they are seen: as creators, as fans, and as future audiences.

“This event provides a once in a lifetime opportunity to harness this extraordinary outpouring of creativity and galvanize the energy behind this viral moment to create an unexpected, unprecedented, landmark response.”

Proceeds from the musical are going to The Actors Fund charity, which makes the whole thing even more wholesome.

While we don’t know exactly what’s in store, the trailer and announcement did drop a few hints.

Theatrical composer RJ Christian featured in the trailer with his rendition of Anton Ego waiting to be served the movie/meme/musical’s titular dish.

The announcement also explicitly mentioned the track “Anyone Can Cook” by actual Broadway star Kevin Chamberlain playing Gusteau.

The video has already clocked 4.6 million views on the app.

The creator or the original “Ode to Remy” jingle, Em Jaccs, has also tweeted about this IRL production.

Could that mean something? Possibly!

Similarly, Daniel Mertzlufft, who turned that jingle into an all-out theatrical chorus, also tweeted.

This tune in particular is already so iconic and so closely associated with the movement that it’d be a crime not to include it in the real thing.

Oh, and they’re clearly using that gorgeous concept art designed by Jess Siswick.

Her mech store has disappeared, too, which could mean something more official is in the works.

Even Disney are on board, which is just great news all around.

“Although we do not have development plans for the title, we love when our fans engage with Disney stories,” a Disney spokesperson told The Verge.

“We applaud and thank all of the online theatre makers for helping to benefit The Actors Fund in this unprecedented time of need.”

Tix start from US $5 (you can cop them here) and come January 1, you’ll be able to view the event for 72 hours after the premiere stream.

Just like the movie taught us that anyone can cook, Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical has shown that anyone can be a star.
