Despite ostensibly having nothing to do with Christmas (aside from the snow, and well, nuns), The Sound of Music has solidified its place in popular culture as a holiday movie. It's most poignant song, "Edelweiss," is featured in seasonal compilations, and every year at the end of December, the family friendly film returns to television.

This weekend's airing on ABC came with a few digital extras, including a video of Julie Andrews recreating her character Maria's iconic walk down the aisle to marry Captain Georg von Trapp, played by Christopher Plummer.

In conversation with 2020's Diane Sawyer, Andrews says the church, St. Michael's in Mondsee in Austria, looks the same as it did more than 50 years ago.

"I don't have the beautiful veil and the beautiful gown, but..." Andrews starts to reflect, before fading off. Sawyer finishes her thoughts, "You have your memories."

"I do. Oh, my god, do I ever," Andrews says.

Then we see Andrews stroll up the aisle to "How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?" just as her character did in the film.

Watch the clip here:

If you're one to compare, here's the original scene from the film:
