Get ready to see some bibbidy, bobbity boo on Broadway.

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s production of “Cinderella” is hitting New York City’s famed Great White Way in 2020.

The king of musical theater announced the plans Wednesday on “Good Morning Britain,” while teasing Taylor Swift’s appearance in his new “Cats” movie.

For the revamped version of Charles Perrault’s  classic fairy tale, he’s working with actress-writer Emerald Fennell (“The Crown,” “Call the Midwife”), executive producer of the Emmy-nominated “Killing Eve.”

“It’s such fun,” the famed composer of “Evita” and “Phantom of the Opera” says of his new production. “[Fennell] is, of course, less than half my age, which is a bit worrying.”

In this magical twist, Prince Charming is gay and runs off with a duke, as Michael Riedel reported in The Post earlier this summer. Cinderella falls in love with someone named Sebastian.

The new musical is currently being performed in London.
