Today, Walt Disney Studio’s releases the Blu-ray debut of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast! The film has been remastered with state of the art restoration with 7.1 Digital Surround Sound and additional viewing experiences including behind the scenes features, deleted scenes, enhanced music tracks, games and more!
Set in and around a quaint French village during the late 18th century, Beauty and the Beast follows the fantastic adventures of Belle, a bright and beautiful young woman who finds escape from her ordinary life, and the advances of a boorish suitor, Gaston, by reading books. Meanwhile, off in a castle in the distance, a cruel young prince is cast under the spell of an enchantress who turns him into a tormented beast, while transforming his servants into animated household objects. In order to remove the curse, the Beast must discover a true love who will return his affection before the last petal falls from an enchanted rose. When Belle’s inventor father stumbles upon the Beast’s castle and is taken prisoner, Belle comes to the rescue and agrees to take her father’s
place. With the help of the castle’s enchanted staff, she sees beneath the Beast’s exterior and discovers the heart and soul of a human prince.
Beauty and the Beast was one of my favorite Disney movies from childhood, second to The Little Mermaid, of course. The music in Beauty and the Beast is simply amazing and you can’t help but find yourself singing along! In fact, Beauty and the Beast is the first of only two animated films ever to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture and earned six Academy Award nominations and won two Oscars for Best Original Song and Best Original Score!
The Bonus features on the Diamond Edition are amazing and include a Sing Along Mode (we loved this), audio commentary, 3 versions of the film, an All-New music video, a never before seen alternate opening, never before seen deleted scenes and it also includes a separate Blu-ray Bonus DVD that includes games, Beyond Beauty- The Untold Stories and more!
Remember, Disney DVD’s are released from the vault for a limited time, so make sure to pick up a copy before it’s gone!
