About Beauty and the Beast Walt Disney Signature Edition
Walt Disney Pictures’ magical animated classic “Beauty and the Beast” captures the magical journey of Belle (voice of Paige O’Hara). An independent and intelligent, modern-day heroine, she’s taken prisoner by a hideous beast (voice of Robby Benson) in his castle.
Despite her precarious situation, Belle befriends the castle’s enchanted staff—a teapot, a candelabra and a mantel clock, among others. The heroine ultimately sees beneath the Beast’s exterior and discover the heart and soul of a prince.
“Beauty and the Beast” was nominated for six Academy Awards®. It was the first animated feature to receive an Academy Award® nomination for best picture.
It won two Oscars®, including best song, by the renowned Alan Menken and Howard Ashman. It also won best original score (Menken) plus a Golden Globe Award® for best comedy/musical.
“Beauty and the Beast” was Disney’s first animated film adapted into a Broadway musical, which ran from 1994-2007 and has delighted more than 35 million people worldwide.
On March 17, 2017, audiences will experience the retelling of the original tale through Disney’s live-action film, “Beauty and the Beast,” in which Emma Watson plays Belle and eight-time Oscar® winner Alan Menken returns to recreate his Academy Award®-winning music score.
