Angela Lansbury whisked audiences away with her memorable role as Mrs. Potts in Beauty in the Beast 25 years ago, and now she’s done it again with a surprise performance.

She dropped in on a special screening in New York City on Sunday. While Belle and the Beast were there too, Lansbury was the real star of the show. It’s a simple performance, but it still tugs at the heartstrings.

Of course she has to tell Chip to go to bed—we wouldn’t expect anything less from Mrs. Potts.
