Tale as Old as Time . . .



I’ve decided to focus on Beauty and the Beast trivia this month because it’s one of my favorite ever Disney animated movies. There’s just something about the girl falling in love with the guy who falls in love with the girl, too. Ah, love. I love it.

Did you know . . . 


that Angela Lansbury, the voice of Mrs. Potts thought someone else would be better used to sing the ballad, Tale as Old as Time. The director asked her to record it as a backup plan, but her version ended up being in the movie, despite her misgiving.

Oh my goodness, and am I glad that it IS her singing that song. It brings something special to an already great movie. I don’t know if I would want to hear anyone other than her singing it. 🙂 

  • I agree she adds something really special to that song. 🙂

  • My wife loves this movie as well and she did a wonderful job with the song. It wouldn’t have been the same with someone else for sure.

  • I cannot imagine ANYONE else singing this song! It’s become a Disney classic, for sure!
