Fun Fact Friday- Beauty and the Beast

Here is a fun fact related to a Disney Park AND and treasured Disney Movie!

Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage opened at “Theater of the Stars” along Sunset Boulevard at MGM Studios (now Disney’s Hollywood Studios) on November 22, 1991.  Okay so I get it, you’re thinking what is the big deal… well the unique piece of trivia is that November 22, 1991 was the exact same day that the movie Beauty and the Beast opened in theaters across the United States.  This was the first time ever that a stage show opened the same day as the movie that inspired it.

The 25 minute stage show has been running multiple shows daily for nearly 26 years now!  If you’re a Beauty and the Beast fan be sure to check out the show next time you’re at Hollywood Studios.

Musical Monday- Beauty and the Beast Throwback

IMG_7102

Okay, the long awaited Live action version of Beauty and the Beast FINALLY hit the theaters this weekend (and broke some records doing so…largest opening for a PG rated movie ever)!  I haven’t seen it YET, but am definitely going soon.  Beauty and the Beast has always been one of my favorite Disney movies from you childhood (in fact it made #7 on my top ten favorite animated Disney movie list)

So today’s Musical Monday shall honor the original movie.  In the movie, Mrs. Potts (voiced by Dame Angela Lansbury) sings the title track.  So below is the scene from the movie with Mrs. Potts performing the song.

Disney songs being recorded by pop artists is almost a “tale as old as time.”  The song “Beauty and the Beast” was recorded by Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson for the radio and the end credits of the movie.  I’m sure that this song was played on the radio and annoyed my parents much like “Let it Go” annoyed me, but it is a classic, and one of my all time favorite Disney songs!
