In the all-new Henry Danger musical special "Henry Danger The Musical", Frankini, the world's most gorgeous villain with the best skincare routine, is back, and he's putting a musical curse on Swellview where everyone has to sing and dance, FOREVER! (or at least until the end of the special)

"The villainous Frankini (Frankie Grande) uses a device to put a musical curse over Swellview,” reads the episode description. “Kid Danger (Jace Norman) and Captain Man (Cooper Barnes) are forced to find a different way to save everyone. But when Captain Man cracks under the pressure, it’s up to Kid Danger to remind him how to be a hero again.”

Henry Danger | Behind The Scenes Of The Musical

The Henry Danger cast is stretching their musical muscles in an upcoming special episode! 🎡

Grande recently discussed his return to TV’s no. 1 live-action kids’ program with!:

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What makes Henry Danger a show you wanted to return to?
FRANKIE GRANDE: OMG, so many things! I would have to say, overall, it’s the collaborative nature of the show. When Frankini is in an episode I get to work with different departments: Michael Johnston, the head of makeup, in order to find the right makeup look; Kris Dangl, the head of wardrobe, to find the right costumes; the directors to take Frankini in all sorts of fun new directions; and in the case of the musical, I get to help choreograph and create vocal melodies with the writer Sam Martin. It is very hard work, but it is so fun working with everyone, especially the incredible cast. It feels more like play than work. I would happily do it every day!

It’s a musical episode, will we be hearing you sing? Or what can you tease about the episode?
I have four songs, all of which have full dance numbers, outrageous costumes, and insane vocals. There is even a chair dance…so yeah… brace yourself for a wild ride with Frankini!

What’s the key to playing Frankini? And how much do you love playing a villain?
The key to playing Frankini is managing to do all of the incredible villainous things he gets to do without losing the humanity of the character. I mean, I love Frankini, and so do the kids watching at home, even though his motives can be a little mischievous! Balance is the big challenge, but it pays off! The thing I love about playing a villain is that you can never go too far with the character. He’s a little out of his mind, so anything goes, which is so fun for me as an actor!
