25th Anniversary Edition? Really? It’s been 25 years since this movie came out?
Oh my. I am feeling extremely old. My oldest daughter is 25. Where has the time gone?
I remember sliding the VHS tape of Beauty and the Beast into the VCR player over and over again because it was one of my girls most favorite movies. They loved Belle’s adorable, but somewhat goofy father and the ever so lovable servants of the beast. “Be Our Guest” was sung around the house numerous times and I think there was even a Belle Halloween costume that was worn a few hundred times.
A Classic Never Gets Old
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast has and always will be one of my favorite classic Disney movies. I’m not sure if it’s because it’s such a cute and endearing movie or because I have such great memories of watching my girls faces light up when they would watch it.
Either way, Beauty and the Beast is one movie that I can now, even 25 years later, still watch with a big smile on my face.
A Sneak Peak and a New Bonus Material
- a rare opportunity to gather around the piano with some of Disney’s greatest composers, as they sing and share how they’ve personally been inspired by the film’s award-winning music
- a look at how Walt Disney himself sought to adapt this famous fairytale
- a nostalgic look back with Paige O’Hara, the voice of Belle
- behind-the-scenes access into the recording booth with the cast
- and a sneak peek at Disney’s upcoming live-action re-telling of “Beauty and the Beast,” arriving in theaters in 2017
After the wonderful job that Disney did with the live action version of Cinderella, I am really excited to see the new Beauty and the Beast.
“Beauty and the Beast” 25th Anniversary Edition
Releases Sept. 6 on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere and Sept. 20 on Blu-ray™ and DVD
Twenty-five years ago, Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” broke ground as the first animated feature film to receive an Academy Award® nomination for best picture. The beloved classic won two Oscars®, including best song and best original score, as well as a Golden Globe Award® for best comedy/musical. Now a whole new generation of viewers will follow the magical journey of Belle, an independent and intelligent, modern-day heroine who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her precarious situation, Belle befriends the castle’s enchanted staff—a teapot, a candelabra and a mantel clock, among others—and ultimately learns to see beneath the Beast’s exterior to discover the heart and soul of a prince.
Did you children grow up watching Beauty and the Beast or are they still little and are enjoying it now? Leave me a comment and let me know. I’d love to hear your Beauty and the Beast stories.
