This is perhaps one of my favorite animated films ever. It is the first animated film to examine love and romance in a way that did not revolve around helpless women falling in love with me. Ariel literally gave up her voice to find love and two previous movies, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty involved women being woken up by the kiss of a man. Perhaps the single defining point of this movie was the vocals and soundtrack, including Angela Lansbury.

Disney takes another classic tale and makes it their own. Disney has a knack for taking a classic movie and choosing the right time to release it. Beauty and the beast is a great example of right place right time. In '91 many of the most popular movies were darker films. Silence of the Lambs, Barton Fink, T2, etc. Something was needed to lighten up the feeling around the silver screen and what better way to do it than to release a new Disney movie with a great cast, some nice music, and a catching story line. While this is not a "Disney Princess Story" the character of Belle was admired by lots of little girls that year. I remember seeing a number of them the halloween following the release of this movie. It was well done over all and great family film.
