Beauty and the Beast

This is my all time favourite movie, not just Disney movie, but all time favourite movie EVER!!! What can i say i am a self confessed Beauty and the beast fan hehe. I still remember my excitement when i first got it on video (video, whats that?) and now it is finaly being re released on dvd on the 1st of November this year, I for one will be the first in line to buy it.

Disney Beauty and the Beast came out in 1991 and was produced by walt disney feature animation, the story is based on Jeanne-marie Le Prince de Beaumont's novel La Belle et la Bete, and is based on a prince who is transformed into a beast, and the young beautiful woman who he imprisons in his castle.

Beauty and the Beast was the 30th film in the Walt Disney animated classics, and the third one released in the period known as the disney renaissance, which began in 1889 with The Little Mermaid, and ended with Disney Tarzan in 1999. Beauty and the Beast is known as one of Disneys greatest ever animated films, and was the first one to be nominated for The Acadamy Award for best picture,  the only other disney animated film to be nominated was the film  'Up' in 2009.

Upon it's release Beauty and the Beast was a instant success, earning £403 million in box office earnings throughout the world, and on top of that it recieved three golden globe awards, including - Best Picture, and two acadamy awards.

In 1997 Walt Disney bought out, Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas, and was quickly followed by Belles magical world in 1998. There was also a television series called Sing me a story with Belle.


An enchantress disguised as a old beggar woman offers a young prince a rose in exchange for a bed for the night, but when the prince refuses, she turns him into a uguly beast, and all his servants into furniture and household items, the favourites being the candlestick Lumiere, the clock Cogsworth, and Mrs Potts and her son Chip, The enchantress also gives the beast a mirror so he can see whatever he wants, and a rose that will bloom until his 21st birthday, but the Beast must love and be loved before all the petals drop off, or he will remain a beast forever. Meanwhile in the village a beautiful young girl called Belle lives with her mad scientist father Maurice, who the locals call 'Crazy old Maurice' the locals also find Belle very strange as she has always got her head in a book, and rejects the advances of smitten hero Gaston. Belles father Maurice's latest invention is a wood chopping machine and when he setts of to the inventors fair, he takes the wrong way and gets lost in the woods, and then stumbles upon the enchanted castle, and the Beast imprisons him. Meanwhile daughter Belle sets of to find her father, when she finds him she offers to take his place which the beast agrees to, Maurice runs back to the village to tell everyone his Belle is being imprisoned but everyone just thinks he is crazy. Back at the castle the Beast asks Belle to dinner but when she refuses he tells his servants not to let her eat, but they like Belle and do her a lavish meal and give her a tour around the castle, where she finds the enchanted rose. but the Beast chaces her away.

Frightened Belle tries to escape but her horse is attacked by wolves, the Beast saves her and he to gets attacked, later at the castle Belle nurses his wounds and so the Beast gives her his libary as a gift, and they become friends. and later have a romantic meal and a ballroom dance. When the Beast later lets Belle use the mirror to check on her father, Belle see's her father dying in the woods and so the Beast tells her to go to him and sets her free, giving her the mirror to remember him by. But with the rose only hours left until it wilts, and the Beast admitting he loves Belle, will she love him back in time?

Belle finds Maurice and takes him home, where smitten Gaston arrives with a lynch Mob, and with Gaston threatening to lock Belles father up for being insane, Belle proves the Beast exixts with the magic mirror,  Gaston can see his beloved Belle has feelings for the beast and leads the locals into the woods to kill the Beast, will Belle get to him in time? and will the Beast finaly become the hansome prince? and will they really all live happily ever after.
