“Uh, Tyra, I don’t think we’re in L.A. anymore,” a confused and amazed Ribeiro tells Banks.
“No, this is a completely different ballroom,” the supermodel responds.
Banks and Ribeiro are dressed in their signature lavish DWTS attire. The America’s Next Top Model creator is laced in a sequined gold gown, while Ribeiro looks dapper in his tailored tuxedo.
After the host’s intro, Tinkerbell came to sprinkle the Disney magic on the new season. Her fairy dust leads to a highlight reel of the professional dancers competing alongside their celebrity partners in season 31.
The hosts will be joined by longtime judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli, and Derek Hough will also make a comeback, ET reports. It’s the second teaser for the highly-anticipated new season, with the previous trailer featuring Daniella Karagach, the season 30 winner with NBA champion Iman Shumpert.
Karagach was joined by fellow DWTS pro dancers Pasha Pashkov, Artem Chigvintsev, Witney Carson, Brandon Armstrong, and Cheryl Burke. The trailer reminded viewers that the new season would be on streaming giant Disney+ and no longer on ABC.
Dancing With the Stars streams live starting Monday, Sept. 19 at 5 p.m. PT/8 p.m. ET on Disney+.
