As you can probably imagine, animated movies are dubbed into other languages for distribution in other countries. But did you know that the Chinese version of Beauty and the Beast featured Jackie Chan as the voice of the Beast? And not only did Jackie provide the Beast’s dialogue, he even sung his songs? He did a great job too; that’s just one of the timeless Beauty and the Beast facts featured in the newest episode of You Think You Know Movies!
Back here in the United States, we know Angela Lansbury as the iconic voice of Mrs. Potts, who sings the famous title song of the film. Incredibly, it took Lansbury just one take to nail her rendition of “Beauty and the Beast.” Even more impressively, she did it on no sleep after spending all night try to get to her voice recording session after her flight was diverted following a bomb threat. Do not mess with Angela Lansbury, guys. She does not screw around.
