"Beauty and the Beast" (1991), marked a return to top form for Disney. After Walt Disney died in 1967, the animated films after that had lost that special Disney touch. With this film, Disney re-discovered its magic touch.
There are nearly no words to describe how truly incredible this film is in almost every way possible. Everything is right up front and done beautifully; the cinematography, the graphics, the frame rate, the development of the characters, the voice-acting, the layout of the plot, the music, the emotional impact, everything! I don't even know where to begin explain the power of this film. But to start, I am more than impressed with the graphics considering the computer technology that was available through 1989-1991. (This film actually released in 1991 @ USA). To continue, the music is awesome and each song comes in at just the right time! While watching this film, you would say to yourself "I'd like to hear a song right about now." And it happens! Which is a 1 in a 1,000,000 chance of happening and it does just that in Beauty in the Beast. And every character has an excellent personality that develops smoothly and you never get bored with them whether you love or hate them. This film truly teaches you the lesson of understanding people and love them for who they are and not for what they are or how repulsive they can be. And aside from the characters different from the novel, the heart of the story remains untainted. And it's truly enjoyable for all ages young and old. I'll be watching this film until I live to be 80 years old. The best film Disney has ever made. 5/5
