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

It did pretty much everything great: music, animation, pacing, writing, characters, and I'm just going to end up listing every job cuz it is just that great.
I know by today's standards people are expecting some super deep things (which is fine, cuz I enjoy that too), but I think a lot of people forget that a simplistic film is just as amazing as a very in-deph film(just like how a deep film can easily be a mess or not actually be that deep at all). And I think it's good to appreciate the different level of depths in film so long as we don't ignore the quality of everything else; and thus, I truly think this Beauty and the Beast will be remembered for a long, long time due to level of both effort and skill that was put into it.
