This "tale as old as time" follows the adventures of Belle, a bright young woman who finds herself imprisoned in the castle of a mysterious beast. With the assistance of the castle's enchanted staff, a delightful and tender romance develops between these two unlikely friends and Belle soon learns the most important lesson of all — that true beauty comes from within.
The most interesting of the extras on this multi-disc set is the storyboard for the first version of the film. British commercial animator Richard Purdum was originally slated to direct Beauty and the Beast: he envisioned a darker retelling of the story with no songs. The storyboards and scratch voice track for this version offer rare insights into the creation of an animated feature--including the wrong turns. Although the artists boarded nearly a quarter of the film, the viewer sees very little of Beauty and nothing of the Beast; too much time is spent on Beauty's well-intentioned father, his comic horse, and her mean aunt. It's easy to see why Jeffrey Katzenberg rejected this version and called in Howard Ashman and Alan Menken. Unfortunately the discs have needlessly fussy, uncooperative menus: why list features on one disc that appear on another? --Charles Solomon

|The Little Mermaid Diamond Edition Release Date?||
Not accurate. The press release specifically said The Little Mermaid will be released in 3D in September 2013 and it also coincides with its Blu-ray release in October 2013.

|If I don't already own this, I'm screwed, right?||
If you don't need it on Blu-Ray and are happy with just a dvd, search for Elements Media. They have it for $12.99. I just ordered it for my 5 year old. What the sellers are charging here is just ridiculous.

I spent $40 and it was well worth it. Love the movie ( so does my daughter) and I don't want to wait another 1 1/2 years
