Get enchanted with Beauty and the Beast

beauty and the beast dvdFor the fans of Disney animated films, Beauty and the Beast is one of Disney's greatest animated achievements and considered as one of the most celebrated animated films of all time. It is also the first animated film that was nominated for six Academy Awards and won best picture.

For those who don’t know how it was made, Beauty and the beast originated and was first published by Madame Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve, published in La jeune américaine et les contes marins. Later on, the popular written version by Mme Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont, in Magasin des enfants, ou dialogues entre une sage gouvernante et plusieurs de ses élèves, an English translation emerged which in fact was a synopsis of Villeneuve's work. Then the animated film was released in theaters in 1991.

It's a story of a young prince who lives in a castle although he had everything his heart could wish for but he was spoiled, selfish, and unkind. One winter's night an old woman appeared in the castle, begged for food and shelter but instead of helping the old woman the prince refused to give and drives away the old woman. Suddenly the old woman turned into a beautiful maiden. The prince tried to apologize, but it was far too late, for maiden had seen that there was no love in his heart as a punishment, the prince was transformed into a beast. To be able to return to its old self as human being, he need to learn on how to love before he reach his 21st birthday. Eventually the Beast falls in love with a beautiful young woman named Belle. Things didn’t go smoothly as the beast encountered several obstacles given by the villagers and to the man who likes Belle to be his future wife, Gaston. At the end the couple were able to fight back and live happily ever after and broke the spell and return to his orginal self.

So what makes Beauty and the beast different from the other Disney films? Unlike Cinderella and the other films, Beauty and the beast has an enchanting animated musical that is thoroughly interesting and charming from start to finish. The story seemed realistic. You will be mesmerized by the story, the characters, and the beauty of the animation especially the character of Belle who portrays a beautiful girl inside and out.

It’s just not an ordinary animated film you would watch every day it has a beautiful lesson for the kids and adults. Although this movie is aimed at kids, I expect grownups will also enjoy it.

Beauty and the Beast is the ideal "must have DVD collection" that your family and kids would definitely enjoy!
