Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along is a 14-minute retelling of the 1992 classic animated film but with a twist. The late Angela Lansbury reprises her role as Mrs. Potts to narrate this new version of the story.

The sidekick LeFou finally gets fed up with Gaston’s egotism and decides to play matchmaker for Belle and the Beast. To kickstart the romance, LeFou sends Maurice into the forest, where Belle ends up following and meets the Beast.

He also helps prepare the feast depicted in “Be Our Guest”, plays violin during the song “Beauty and the Beast” and even warns the castle’s inhabitants of Gaston and the villagers’ arrival.

Other favorite songs from the classic animated film included in this fun production include, “Belle”, “Gaston”, and “Something There”.
