More Oscar presenters have been announced by the Academy, which includes a nominated star and some of 2016's biggest success stories.

Oscar nominee Emma Stone is set to present at the 2017 ceremony, becoming the first announced presenter among nominees this year thus far. Arrival star and five-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams will also present, as well as Oscar winners Javier Bardem and Charlize Theron.

Rogue One stars Riz Ahmed and Felicity Jones (who is an Oscar nominee herself) will also present. Other presenters among this third wave include Moana star Dwayne Johnson, John Cho, Leslie Mann, A United Kingdom star David Oyelowo and Hidden Figures star Janelle Monáe.

"No matter who you are or where you live, movies bring us together," said Michael De Luca and Jennifer Todd in a statement. "Through indelible, fearless performances these extraordinary actors help make it happen. We are thrilled to welcome them to the 89th Oscars stage."

They join the growing list of presenters at this year's Oscars, including Gael García Bernal, Halle Berry, Jamie Dornan, Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Dakota Johnson, Shirley MacLaine, Kate McKinnon, Hailee Steinfeld and last year's acting winners, Leonardo DiCaprio, Brie Larson, Mark Rylance and Alicia Vikander.

All five nominees for Best Original Song will be performed at the ceremony as well. Justin Timberlake will sing "Can't Stop the Feeling!", his smash hit from Trolls, Sting will perform "The Empty Chair" from Jim: The James Foley Story, Auli'i Cravalho and Lin-Manuel Miranda will duet on "How Far I'll Go" from Moana and John Legend will sing the two nominated songs from La La Land, "Audition (The Fools Who Dream)" and "City of Stars".

La La Land has the most Oscar nominations this year with 14. This ties a record for the most nominated movie in Oscar history, with All About Eve and Titanic.

The Oscars will air live from coast to coast on Sunday, Feb. 26 at 8:30 p.m. ET / 5:30 p.m. PT on ABC.
