Angela Lansbury Takes You Back to Childhood With Surprise Performance of “Beauty and the Beast” for 25th Anniversary
Tale as old a time.
I don’t know if you’re aware but Star Trek isn’t the only pop culture phenomenon celebrating a major milestone. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Disney animated classic, Beauty and the Beast, which means it’s time to freak out because that was a while ago and you’re super old now. Kidding.
Angela Lansbury, who many will recognize as the voice of Mrs. Potts in the film and whose parents will probably recognize her as Jessica Fletcher on Murder, She Wrote, made a surprise appearance at the Lincoln Center following a special screening.
According to Entertainment Weekly, legendary composer Alan Menken treated fans to a medley of his greatest hits from movies like Aladdin, live-action musical Enchanted with Amy Adams, The Little Mermaid and Hercules. When it came time for Beauty and the Beast, Lansbury came out on stage to offer some vocal assistance and she didn’t miss a beat.
The special 25th anniversary edition of the film is available on DVD and Blu-ray now. A live-action reboot starring Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Emma Thompson and so many more heads to theaters next year.
