The Tale as Old as Time is New Again – Beauty and the Beast Giveaway

by Erica

It’s here! It’s here! Beauty and the Beast is finally out of the Disney vault and I am thrilled!!!!

Tale as Old as Time

Beauty and the Beast has arrived for the first time on Blu-ray Hi-Def as the second installment to the company’s new Diamond Collection.

The Blu-ray transformation reveals the magic, music and majesty of the film as never before experienced with state-of-the-art picture restoration, pristine 7.1 Digital Surround Sound and hours of additional viewing experiences that include behind the scenes features, deleted scenes, enhanced music tracks, immersive games and more.

The first of only two animated films ever to be nominated for an Academy Award® for Best Picture (the second is 2009’s Up), Beauty and the Beast earned six Academy Award® nominations and won two Oscars® in 1992 for Best Original Song (“Beauty and the Beast”) and Best Original Score.

Unavailable in any form since 2003, Beauty and the Beast will be released from the Disney vault for a limited time only, arriving on a Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack (2 Blu-ray Discs + DVD) October 5th, followed seven weeks later with the release of a 2-Disc standard definition DVD on November 23rd.

Beauty and the Beast is by far my favorite Disney animated film. I love the story, characters and music. I even saw Beauty and the Beast on Broadway years ago, and it was spectacular! We have had the movie on VHS for some time now, but watching it with my children on Blu-Ray is wonderful. The transformation is truly magical. It’s the movie I have known and loved, only better!

This is definitely one that I will cherish and hopefully keep protected from my two-year-old’s sticky fingers.

I love “Something There” . It has the best lyrics :)
There’s something sweet
And almost kind
But he was mean and he was coarse and unrefined
But now he’s dear, and so unsure
I wonder why I didn’t see it there before

Beauty and the Beast is my favorite of the Disney Princess Movies. I have always identified with Belle and her love of reading. It is so hard to chose a favorite song from the movie, but it would probably have to be “Provincial Life”.

Our high school drama group is doing Beauty and the Beast in the Spring. They are able to rent costumes from a national touring company so it should be great. My favorite song is “Something There”.

The Beauty and the Beast story is never ending. Actually, with all the fairy tale stories we have for me Beauty and the beast is the most dramatic and meaningful. I am already 30 but I still love it and until now I keep on watching it but of course with my kids already.

55 Melody~ October 7, 2010 at 7:48 am

I absolutely loved the “Be Our Guest” number the best!
This was my favorite story when I was a little girl (albeit not Disney’s) because the Daddy was getting a rose for his daughter, yet there was tragedy and triumph in it all, and I was hooked. I remember having my Mom read Beauty and the Beast to me as often as she would and for the longest time (as a child) I carried around a raggedy well worn copy of a pop-up book edition.
I’d love to share this movie with my daughters, even though I wonder about the message inherent in loving the “beast”. :( I think it is one for discussion…

I have not seen it, actually, like many of the Disney films until recently when we started to watch them with my 3 year old. I feel like a reborn kid discovering all these films, and the joy of a 3 year old watching them for the first time is amazing. Cant wait to add this one to our list of films watched together.
