Beauty and the Beast (1991) HOME
For who could ever learn to love a beast?  -  Narrator, voiced by David Stiers
1 2 3 H  (Top 3 Animation Films)

In the original story the castle’s inhabitants were invisible, in Disney’s version they are household objects
The 13th Disney animated release was far from unlucky, being the only animated film to ever be nominated for a best picture Oscar
70 years of Disney films and the young Prince still hasn’t learned to be suspicious of haggard old ladies

  A score that emulates and matches in quality and style top Broadway compositions


  Equally appeals to adults and children, with typical Disney whimsy, morals for kids and complex adult themes that mesh together seamlessly.


  Synergized talents illustrate, literally, the peak of modern day hand-drawn animation.  Everything works so well that only a highly talented and like-minded team could have produced this film.
