Beauty and the Beast anniversary special pays tribute to Angela Lansbury

The singular screen and stage talent Angela Lansbury in 1991 endeared herself to a new generation when she lent her voice to the maternal teapot Mrs. Potts in Disney's Beauty and the Beast.

The performance was so memorable it earned Lansbury a moment of tribute in ABC's Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration.

Shania Twain, who plays Mrs. Potts in this live musical celebration, delivered her own rendition of Beauty and the Beast, accompanied by original composer Alan Menken on piano. As she closed out the song, a projection of Lansbury and the animated version of Mrs. Potts, along with the dates 1925-2022, appeared behind Twain.
