The Murder, She Wrote actress looked amazing in a red jacket and light-colored slacks. She made her way onto the stage, waving at the audience, while actors dressed as Belle and the Beast danced beside her to the piano’s tune, written by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken.

Lansbury voiced the motherly teapot for the 1991 film, which also featured the voices of Paige O’Hara (Belle), Robby Benson (Beast) and Jesse Corti (Lefou).

According to the Daily Mail, Lansbury told Flicks and the City while posing on the red carpet at the event that she believes Beauty and the Beast is one of the most memorable roles of her career.

“It’s never been very far away from me,” she told the blogger. “It will be remembered, I think, as one of the great movies I will be remembered for. Among the movies I will be remembered for, I’d say this is number one or two.”

The award-winning actress was nominated for an Oscar for her roles in both Gaslight and The Picture of Dorian Gray. In 1993 she was nominated for a Grammy for Beauty and the Beast.
