In January, Disney will commence on a 2 year journey to bring some of Disney’s greatest classics to the 3D screen. The first movie to hit the big screen (again) will be Beauty & the Beast. This film has enchanted childern of all ages since 1991 – that is 20 years already. This holiday season, you can give the kids a head start with Beauty & the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas Special Edition & Belle’s Magical World Special Edition.
BEAUTY & THE BEAST: THE ENCHANTED CHRISTMAS SPECIAL EDITION is a delightful tale! Share in the wonder as Mrs. Potts recounts another “tale as old as time” about a Christmas past that almost wasn’t – thanks to the scheming of former court composer Forte, who is determined to keep Belle and Beast apart forever. This enchanting adventure boasts delightful songs, spellbinding visuals and enduring themes of hope, friendship and love. Bonus features include a behind the scenes featurette, , Disney Sing-a-long mode, “As Long As There’s Christmas” music video and much more!
BEAUTY & THE BEAST: BELLE’S MAGICAL WORLD SPECIAL EDITION is a new Special Edition inspired by the original classic, Beauty and the Beast. Join Belle, Disney’s spirited princess, Beast, Cogsworth, Lumiere, plus some charming new friends, as they discover how teamwork and friendship can turn a once-gloomy castle into a dazzling palace fit for a princess! This fun-filled, instant classic with your favorite characters and enchanting songs proves that true beauty shines from within! Bonus features include Disney’s Sing Me a Story with Belle “What’s Inside Counts,” Belle’s Delightful Dinner Game, and much more!
Despite playing this movie for DD, I don’t think it struck her as one of her favourites. Normally, she watches a movie, doesn’t care for it much but then asks for it everyday thereafter. (Yes, she is a typical female). These movies were played in the background, not watched too much and then never requested again.
So, I suppose for this review, there is very little to comment on. The movies were released on November 22nd and for most children, they will enjoy the holiday themed Beauty & the Beast film. For my little one, it might have just been a little too advanced for her at this time. Like a lot of her movies, she will start watching them over and over again in a few months time. I guess time will only tell. (We will probably be watching Christmas themed movies in April… what else is new?)
