Runtime: 60 min 56 episodes. Back in the village however, unscrupulous hunter Gaston Richard White has his own plans for Belle. Written by Blazer The only animated movie to receive a Best Picture Oscar nomination, and it deserved it. Magic from the opening prologue to the final credit, "Beauty and the Beast" is the last real classic to come from the Disney crew before John Lasseter came along.
This was one of the few movies I happily paid to see twice in the cinema, and sitting in a sparsely-populated Friday night audience I was living in Barbados at the time, and it was hardly the most artistic place on Earth You all know the story, so apart from pointing out the movie's one flaw the prince's spell had to be broken before he turned 21 or he would remain a beast forever; so if it was cast ten years before the events of the movie, wouldn't that mean he was 11 when the spell was cast?
You have a monster who's more human than the movie's medallion-man villain; you have a heroine who's PC but engaging with it; you have a supporting cast of magic utensils who wisely never upstage the couple at the centre of this love story and despite the Disney animated trappings, it IS a love story ; and you have a captivating story, beautifully told. The movie's also got wonderful design of its French setting and characters, with the ballroom scene a standout the tiny but appreciative audience were impressed by the sight of the Beast and Belle in their evening wear - the only time I've ever seen cartoon characters get wolf-whistled in a cinema ; and Alan Menken's score is his finest work for the Mouse, with matchless lyrics from the late and much lamented Howard Ashman - how many musicals can you name where ALL the songs are brilliant?
But ultimately it's the movie's very real heart that makes it a keeper; the cliche "You'll laugh, you'll cry" is all too true in this case. A lot of movies called 'classic' don't deserve that appellation, but this one does.
I'll be slaughtered by anime fans, but what the hell And "Shrek"s. And, I'm willing to bet, "Treasure Planet"s. This is a truly adult animated feature that's also one for the entire family. Forget "The Silence of the Lambs" - this is the real best picture of Looking for some great streaming picks?

A week has passed and she begins hallucinating about the Beast lying dead in his quarters back at his castle and hastens to return; she immediately steals back the ring from her father and uses it to return to the Beast. Once she is back in the castle, Beauty's fears are confirmed as she finds the Beast murdered in cold blood at the hands of an angry mob sent by her father in an effort to keep his children, even Beauty, away from him.
Now completely devastated over her sins, Beauty bursts into tears and laments that she should have learned how to love the Beast in the first place, screaming "I am sorry! This was all my fault! Suddenly, when she says those magic words, the Beast is transformed into the handsome prince from Beauty's dreams. The Prince informs her that long ago, a powerful witch turned him into a hideous beast for his selfishness after trying to seduce him and that only by finding true love, despite his ugliness, could the curse be broken.
He and Beauty are married and they live happily ever after together. Beaumont greatly pared down the cast of characters and simplified the tale to an almost archetypal simplicity. The circumstances leading to her arrival at the Beast's castle unfolds in a similar manner and on this arrival she is informed that she is mistress there and he will obey her.
Beaumont strips most of the detail and lavish descriptions present on Beauty's exploration of the palace in Villeneuve's versions and quickly jumps to her return home. She is given leave to remain there for a week and when she arrives her sisters plot to feign fondness for her to entice her to remain another week in hopes that the Beast will devour her in his anger.
Again, she returns to him dying and restores him to life. They then marry and live happily ever after and this ends Beaumont's tale as she omits the background information given on both the Prince and his family and Beauty and hers. Emmanuel Cosquin collected a version with a tragic ending from Lorraine , in northeastern France, titled The White Wolf Le Loup blanc in which the youngest daughter asks her father to bring her a singing rose when he returns.
Because the man cannot find a singing rose for his youngest daughter he refuses to return home until he finds one. When he finally finds singing roses, is in the castle of the titular white wolf, who initially wants to kill him for daring to steal his roses, but when he hears about his daughters he changes his mind and agrees to spare him his life, with the condition he must give him the first living being that greets him when he returns home, who turns out to be his youngest daughter.
In the castle the girl discovers the white wolf is enchanted and can turn into a human at night, but she must not tell anyone about it. Unfortunately the girl is later visited by her two elder sisters, who pressure her to tell them what is happening. After she finally does it, the castle crumbles and the wolf dies. In this version the heroine and her sisters are the daughters of a poor peasant and named after flowers, with the protagonist being called Rose and her sisters Marguerite Daisy and Julianne respectively.
The Beast is described having a mastiff jaw, lizard legs and a salamander's body. The ending is closer to Villeneuve's and Beaumont's versions, with Rose rushing back to the beast castle and finds the Beast lying besides a fountain, dying. When the Beast asks her if she knows that he can't live without her Rose answers yes, and the Beast turn back into a human, explaining to Rose that he was a prince cursed for mocking a beggar, who could only be disenchanted by a poor but kind-hearted maiden.
Unlike in Beaumont's version it is not mentioned that the protagonist's sisters are punished at the end. The tale is surpringsily popular in the Italian oral tradition. Christian Schneller collected a variant from Trentino titled The Singing, Dancing and Music-making Leaf German: Vom singenden, tanzenden und musicirenden Blatte Italian: La foglia, che canta, che balla e che suona in which the Beast takes the form of a snake.
Instead of going to visit her family alone the heroine can only go to her sister's wedding if she agrees to let the snake go with her. During the wedding they dance together, and when the girl kicks the snake's tail it turns into a beautiful youth, who's the son of a count. Instead of going to visit her family, staying longer than she promised and then returning to the Monster's castle to find him dying on the ground, here the Monster shows Zelinda her father dying on a magic mirror and says the only way she can save him is saying that she loves him.
Zelinda does as aid, and the Monster turns into a human, who tells her he is the son of the King of the Oranges. Instead of a seeing it on a magic mirror, or knowing about it because the Beast tells her, here Bellinda knows what happens in her father's house because in the garden there is a tree called the Tree of Weeping and Laughter, whose leaves turn upwards when there is joy in her family, and they drop when there is sorrow.
Italo Calvino included a version on Italian Folktales titled Bellinda and the Monster , inspired mostly from Comparetti's version, but adding some elements from De Nino's, like the Tree of Weeping and Laughter.
In that one when the father asks his three daughters what they want him to bring them the youngest asks for the hand of the king's son in marriage, and everybody thinks she's haughty for wanting such thing. The father orders his servants to kill her, but they spare him and she hides in the woods, where she meets a wolf that brings her to a castle, where they lived together.
