The film that officially signaled Disney's animation renaissance (following The Little Mermaid) and the only animated feature to receive a Best Picture Oscar nomination, Beauty and the Beast remains the yardstick by which all other animat
Over a decade after it was made, this Oscar®-winning musical looks better than ever; the remastered film pops off the screen. This DVD debut has a whole disc of extras, but it's the film that matters here. You can see the original version, the special edition--which has a new song sequence, "Human Again," created for its 2001 release in IMAX theaters--and the unique "work-in-progress" edition that played the New York Film Festival and was seen on an earlier laserdisc release. Disney's tendency for posh--albeit sanitized--extras continues here with a commercial look at their animated history and a making-of hosted by Celine Dion. The kids will have more fun with the games--a trivia test on disc one unlocks a robust DVD game set on disc two. --Doug Thomas

The special features on the Amazon Instant Video include some wonderful behind the scenes footage of the original voice actors as they performed, as well as three interview sections: the background of how Disney himself was interested but never got around to telling this story in his time, a segment from Paige O'Hara about being the voice of Belle and how it changed her life, and (most exciting for me) a segment where some of Disney's top composers sit together and talk about the music of Beauty and the Beast and how it was created and how animation affects the music--Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez from Frozen, Lin Manuel Miranda from Moana and Hamilton, Stephen Schwartz of Wicked and Hunchback of Notre Dame (as well as many others), and OF COURSE Disney Legend and music genius, Alan Menken who worked with the late great Howard Ashman to create the music of Beauty and the Beast (as well as The Little Mermaid and nearly every other fabulous Disney musical).
But, I digress.
Beauty and the Beast is a timeless classic that everyone should enjoy, and it is a must see for every child (and adult).
