"Days in the Sun," one of three new songs written for the film by Alan Menken and Tim Rice, was played during an aerial performance. Director Bill Condon and composer Alan Menken previously spoke about the song in interviews with Fandango and Entertainment Weekly, calling it "a combination of a lullaby and a remembrance of happier days for everybody."
Bill Condon (Director): "'Days in the Sun,' in particular, is sung by Belle and has more to do with the household staff and how they see the future when the curse is lifted. But it's also a song the Beast's mother sang to him when he was a boy. So it sort of comes full circle."
Alan Menken (Composer): "'Days in the Sun' is a moment when all of the objects in the castle-and Belle-are going to sleep. Basically, everybody in the castle is having memories of what it used to be when they had their days in the sun. It's sort of a combination of a lullaby and a remembrance of happier days for everybody."
The weekend also included ballroom dancing, where fans could hear Emma Thompson's (Mrs. Potts) rendition of the title song for the first time.
