Watch this enchanting footage of the original Beauty and the Beast cast recording Be Our Guest

Angela Lansbury, take a bow


From what we’ve seen of the table read it certainly looks as though Emma Watson and Dan Stevens have had fun making the live action remake of Beauty and Beast but nothing compares to the unbridled joy the original cast clearly had recording their voice roles.
A newly released behind the scenes video reveals just how excitable they were to bring the characters to life, with Angela Lansbury putting in a particularly heart-warming performance as Mrs Potts.
Paige O’Hara is enchanting as a joyful Belle, while Jerry Orbach – who sadly passed away in 2004 – lights up the screen as he gives voice to Lumiere.
