Video Shows Cast Recording Of ‘Be Our Guest” From Disney’s Animated Classic ‘Beauty & The Beast’

April 11, 2018

A new clip from a forthcoming documentary about music composer Howard Ashman gives us a look into the record sessions for Walt Disney’s animated classic ‘Beauty & The Beast.

As originally reported by BroadwayWorld.com the life of Oscar-winning lyricist Howard Ashman, the creative force behind such Disney classics as THE LITTLE MERMAID, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST and ALADDIN, is chronicled in filmmaker Don Hahn’s new documentary, HOWARD.

The forthcoming documentary is set to debut at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 22. It documents the life of Ashman, who passed away in 1991 at the age of 40. He collaborated with Alan Menken on many works, most notably several animated feature films for Disney, for which Ashman wrote the lyrics and Menken composed the music.

The partnership’s first Disney film was The Little Mermaid (1989), followed by BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (1991). After his death, some of Ashman’s songs were included in Disney’s 1992 film, Aladdin.

You can check out the clip below featuring Ashman giving direction during the record of the song ‘Be Our Guest’:
