Jan. 29 (UPI) -- Gal Gadot, Mindy Kaling, Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus have been booked as presenters for next month's Oscars ceremony in Los Angeles.

Show producers Lynette Howell Taylor and Stephanie Allain said they also lined up Zazie Beetz, Timothée Chalamet, Anthony Ramos, Mark Ruffalo, Kelly Marie Tran and Kristen Wiig to hand out trophies at the ABC telecast on Feb. 9.

"We're excited to welcome these talented artists to help celebrate this year's movies," Howell Taylor and Allain said in a joint statement. "Each brings their own unique energy and appeal to our global audience."

The producers previously announced that last year's winners in the acting categories -- Mahershala Ali, Olivia Colman, Regina King and Rami Malek -- would return as presenters for this year's gala.
