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.

We have a new 3D home theater system at our house so it was fun to get this movie in 3D. When you're watching a 3D Blu-ray movie you feel like you're part of the movie. It brings the characters to life. There are tons of special features to keep you entertained for hours. 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.
