Beauty and the Beast Blu-ray + DVD Combo Pack Review...

A Beloved Fairy Tale Is Restored To All New Heights On Blu-ray™!
Disney’s Academy Award®-Winning Animated Classic Beauty and the Beast:
Diamond Edition

On Blu-ray™+ DVD Combo Pack – October 5, 2010
And Standard Definition DVD - November 23, 2010 

I love Beauty and the Beast! This is a good movie for all ages. When a spell gets placed on the Prince and everyone in the house gets turned into animated objects, the dog becomes a foot stool. It's so funny to see this little foot stool running around barking and wagging a tail. I love watching the romance progress between Belle and the Beast. At first he is really mean and has a bad temper. Then he starts to fall in love with Belle and changes his attitude on life. I also felt bad for Belle's father when the town turned against him and said he was crazy because he talked about the beast.

There are tons of special features on the Blu-ray disc! There's also an extra Blu-ray disc that's all just special features. The Blu-ray comes with composing a classic, Broadway beginnings and a music video just to name a few. Then the extra disc comes with games, classic DVD bonus features, beyond Beauty, the untold stories and much more.  
 

Disney’s most requested film, Beauty and the Beast, arrives 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.
 
Film Synopsis:
Set in and around a quaint French village during the late 18th century, Beauty and the Beast
follows the fantastic adventures of Belle, a bright and beautiful young woman who finds escape
from her ordinary life, and the advances of a boorish suitor, Gaston, by reading books. Meanwhile,
off in a castle in the distance, a cruel young prince is cast under the spell of an enchantress who
turns him into a tormented beast, while transforming his servants into animated household objects.
In order to remove the curse, the Beast must discover a true love who will return his affection
before the last petal falls from an enchanted rose. When Belle’s inventor father stumbles upon the
Beast’s castle and is taken prisoner, Belle comes to the rescue and agrees to take her father’s
place. With the help of the castle’s enchanted staff, she sees beneath the Beast’s exterior and
discovers the heart and soul of a human prince.
