/ 02:41 PM September 20, 2016

Angela Lansbury performed a tune “as old as time.”

The mellow voice behind the doting Mrs. Potts in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast sang the film’s classical theme song in its 25th-anniversary screening held at the Lincoln Center in New York on Sunday.


Lansbury, 90, joined the original voice cast of the film, including Paige O’Hara (Belle), Robby Benson (Beast) and Richard White (Gaston), People reported.


She was joined by musical composer Alan Menken, who played the piano. During her performance, she even recited one of Potts’ lines to her son. “Run along and get into the cupboard, Chip,” she said. “Night, Love.”

The original 1991 hit Beauty and the Beast won several awards, including an Oscar award for Best Original Song.

A live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast is in the making and will star “Colonia” actress Emma Watson as Belle and British actor Dan Stevens as the Beast. It is scheduled to be shown in movie theaters on March 17 next year, and the film’s DVD is expected to be released soon.  Gianna Francesca Catolico
