Welcome to Attraction Checklist.
This episode we head to the France Pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase to check out the new Beauty And The Beast Sing-Along. The Epcot guide map describes this film by saying: Sing Along while enjoying a twist on this tale as old as time. Since this is a film there are no age or height requirements for the show. Before we venture to The Beast’s castle, here are five fast facts about the Beauty And The Beast Sing-Along.
1. On November 17, 2018, it was announced at D23 that the Beauty And The Beast Sing-Along would be coming to the France Pavilion in Epcot. While it had a few soft openings, the film officially debuted at Epcot on January 17, 2020.
2. The Beauty And The Beast Sing-Along was created by Don Hahn who is the producer of both the animated and live-action Beauty and the Beast films.
3. The Sing-Along is narrated by Angela Lansbury, the voice of Mrs. Potts from the original film and Jessi Corti, the original voice of LeFou in the animated film returned to record new dialog for this film.
4. Not only were some of the original voice actors brought back, some of the animated film’s animators returned to create all new animation for the production.
5. As of this recording, The Beauty And The Beast Sing-Along runs most of the day at the France Pavilion but in the evenings, the Pavilion’s original film, Impressions de France returns to the same screen and runs until parks close.
Now let’s check out the new Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along. Joining me once again is John B. deHaas and after the show we’ll give you our thoughts on this attraction. And don’t worry, we don’t sing along with the show which is good because this is a binaural recording! Get your headphones as we head to Epcot for the Beauty And The Beast Sing-Along!
