Disney's Beauty and The Beast Blu-ray Movie Review
Beauty and the Beast Came Out Of Disney's Vault in 2010
Walt Disney released Beauty and the Beast from The Vault on blu-ray on October 5, 2010 and on DVD a short time thereafter. This issue represents the first time Beauty and the Beast was available on high definition blu-ray disc.
You probably already know that Beauty and the Beast is a beautifully animated Disney film set in 18th century France, which tells the tale of a young woman named Belle who escapes from life by reading. It includes a prince who has been turned into a beast (and had his servants turned into household goods) by a magic spell. In order to escape from the curse, the Beast has to be in love. That is, in love with someone who loves him, too. When Belle's father is taken prisoner in the Beast's castle, Belle comes to his rescue by trading herself for her father's freedom. When she gets to know the Beast...well, the rest is as they say, history.
On this page, you will find more information about Beauty and the Beast including the official high definition movie trailer and reviews by the blu-ray movie experts. You will even find information about the January 13, 2012 re-release of the movie in 3D.

Beauty and the Beast (Diamond Edition) Blu-ray Reviews by Amazon Customer Yangali
"When I found out that beauty and the beast was to be released on blu-ray, I was excited. My children were excited as well, even though they are teenagers, they remember watching this film as toddlers and loving it. We bought it and watched it that weekend.I was in awe of the beauty of the restoration. If your blu-ray player is set up right, with HDMI cables and an HDTV, there is no reason this edition should not look absolutely stunning. The picture quality is perfect, the colors are vibrant, yet natural, and it's hard to pay attention to the film when the beauty of the restoration is immaculate! But, by the time the family had finished the film, we knew we had a great time.No matter what version you watch this in, you are bound to have a great movie time as a family. But watching it on blu-ray was beyond my greatest expectations. It made a remarkable story even more beautiful, which I always thought impossible.Overall, 5 stars for an excellent film and version of the film in blu-ray." ~ E.B. Yangali
