Alan Menken: I remember Angela didn't want to record Beauty and The Beast. Herself - Voice of 'Mrs. Potts': It was a very slow ballad and I was afraid of it I said, "I don't think your right in asking me to sing this song I think someone else should sing it." and they said, "no we want you to sing it." Alan Menken: What a day in the studio that was. Just not to be believed. And Angela... one take, Beauty and The Beast, one take. Will Finn: Beauty and The Beast is a wonderful tale of morality and love and it stars [Produces a Cogsworth figurine from his jacket] a mantle clock named Cogsworth and a bunch of other characters whose names I just can't remember at this point in time. Alan Menken: Beauty and The Beast is the telling of that story and also of a very personal story of Howard Ashman's courage and uh his passing. Roy Edward Disney: [about Beauty and The Beast being nominated for Best Picture] To have your peers come and say, "That's a movie" really moved us all in a special way Kirk Wise: We were kinda made the acting directors of this film which meant that uh Gary Trousdale: We had to act like directors
