Disney World is making some important changes to Epcot's France pavilion, and one of those new changes previewed in January will be a “story as old as time”. Soon, the classic film Impressions de France will have an accompanying function to go hand in hand, while families and lovers of Disney princesses will have the chance to take a look at the new Beauty and the Beast Sing-Along feature . The experience will serve as an opportunity to sing the classic songs of the film and to have a new interpretation of the story through new scenes that we absolutely adore.
Don Hahn, producer of the animated and live-action version of Beauty and the Beast , directed the Sing-Along and compared it to a cliff version of the Disney story. In January, visitors to Epcot will have the opportunity to watch the screenings and sing along with 5 songs over a period of time 14 minutes. They will also learn the true story of the Belle and Beast novel that we didn't learn the first time and will see some completely new movies.
Angela Lansbury resumed her role as Mrs. Potts to tell the public that it was not destiny to bring the two together, it was LeFou. In this adventure, the muttering Gaston's henchmen got tired of being tossed and taken for granted, and they played the matchmaker so that Belle would return to Gaston. New scenes integrated with the original LeFou movie (which is still voiced by Jesse Corti) as the mind behind some of the film's most iconic scenes.
LeFou, for example, was the person who made Belle's yellow dress, and also the person who freed the birds that ate from the couple's hands in the winter scene. It's all very ironic and presented in a way that should provoke a lot of laughter, but it's also an effective story that condenses the main moments of the film by telling the story strictly through LeFou's perspective.
Holding the story tight is important in The beauty and the beast sing together because it keeps the public busy and able to bounce from one iconic song to the next. The audience will sing “Belle”, “Gaston”, “Something There”, “Be Our Guest” and, of course, “Beauty and the Beast”. It's frantic (and maybe a little intimidating), but even non-singers can have fun in this while watching the film mixed with the new parts of LeFou. As someone who was skeptical before the show that I would like it or not, I can say that it surprised me a little. It's nice to see the character get a bow of redemption!
As mentioned above, The beauty and the beast sing together will debut in the Epcot France pavilion of Walt Disney World in January 2020. In the meantime, with CinemaBlend it remains for other important updates of the theme park and for the latest news on what happens in the world of television and movies throughout the rest of 2019 and beyond.
