Beauty and the Beast in 3D

Disney classic hits cinema screens in glorious 3D

Upon its release in 1991, Beauty and the Beast saw Disney animation take a huge stride forward, embracing the stunning technical advances of computer-generated imagery and updating the traditional dependent heroine. Belle is resourceful, bookish and vigorous in resisting the chauvinist advances of Gaston. The Beast, based on a menagerie of brooding buffalo, bear, boar and gorilla, learns to master his temper, and his growing relationship with Belle is infinitely touching. The six musical numbers reveal character or push the action, with ‘Be Our Guest’ an outstanding example of cartoon choreography. Dazzlingly good, we’re looking forward to this 3D revamp.
