Countdown to 'Beauty and the Beast' #12

Trivia Tuesday- An Enchanted Meeting
Disney's Enchanted is riddled with references and cameos from the house of mouse and Beauty and the Beast shows up in a rather dramatic fashion. Paige O'Hara, the original voice of Belle, has a cameo as a soap opera actress named Angela (named after Angela Lansbury). The scene also features music from the animated film. 
 From Oh My Disney:
Whilst flipping through channels on his “magic mirror,” Edward stumbles upon references to Robin Hood, Dumbo, Fun and Fancy Free, and the Spanish dub of Mickey and the Beanstalk. The most elaborate reference is the soap opera he watches for a moment with Nathaniel— the female soap star “Angela” (so named for Angela Lansbury, who voiced Mrs. Potts in Beauty and the Beast) is played by Paige O'Hara, the voice of Belle. “Angela” is arguing with a man named “Jerry” (Jerry Orbach voiced Lumiere) because she’s having an affair with a man named “Ogden” (David Ogden Stiers voiced Cogsworth). This soap opera scene is scored with music from Beauty and the Beast. We’ll give you a minute to recover from this.
