It doesn't have the animation quality that the big budget original had but they do the best they can with the budget they have and it will definitely be gleaming on Blu-ray. Some people say that the organ is too scary for kids, really? Is it the voice or what? I just don't see it. He is no scarier than the witch from Snow White, the Pleasure Island sequence from Pinochio, or even Gaston in the final scenes of the original. Parents all have to use their own discretion when allowing children to watch any film but I don't see how the villain here is any more frightening than those other acclaimed classics.
The only downside with this release, not really any new special features. I would have loved a commentary or some new look back, even some classic disney holiday cartoons updated to high definition. I would have loved them but I can't say I expected them. Disney isn't as great at including new material as they have been in the past. There is the new inclusion of segments from the old Lynsey McLeod series Sing Me A Story with Belle, which will be nice to revisit but doesn't seem to tie into the holiday theme upon first inspection.
I guess the fact that I'm now buying this to put it beside my Beauty and the Beast Blu-ray means I'll have spent over a hundred dollars on the film.Read more ›
And to capitalize on the success of the film, Disney would release the two midquel's of the "Beauty and the Beast" trilogy: "Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas" (1997) and "Belle's Magical World" (1998). The films would take place when Belle was being held inside the mansion of the beast and both trying to get to know each other.
"Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas" is presented in 1080p High Definition Widescreen (1:78:1). For a direct-to-video "Beauty and the Beast" midquel, the production was obviously higher budget with the use of CG. Even the animation is much more fluid, colors are more vibrant, more detail and shadowing are utilized in "The Enchanted Christmas" and utilizes CG similar to the original animated film.
I saw no artifacts, no white specks and scratches. For the most part, picture quality is very good considering this is a direct-to-video release and it being released in 1997. It's unfortunate that this quality didn't transfer over to the third film in the trilogy "Belle's Magical World".
AUDIO & SUBTITLES:
"Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas" is presented in English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio, 5.1 Dolby Digital French and Spanish language tracks. Subtitles are in English SDH, French and Spanish.Read more ›
