If you don't already own Beauty and the Beast on Blu-ray, then you're in luck with the Signature Collection disc.

Until Disney can bring Walt Disney back to life and bundle his reanimated corpse with the Ultra Mega Diamond Edition, this is absolutely the definitive version to own. Simply excellent.

Beauty and the Beast is the movie that convinced Disney they were back in the game. I'd like to send T-1000 back in time to destroy it.

There are plenty of good reasons to see Beauty and the Beast 3D, even if the on-trend big-screen 3-D-ness of the experience is much more about market extension than artistic imperative.

Sustained by strong characters and a powerful score, the film translates so well to DVD that even the unfinished version is worth watching.

There's a reason Beauty and the Beast is the only animated picture to receive an Academy Award nomination for best picture - it's exceptional.

...its 2-D art work is in the best Disney tradition, with expressively drawn characters and gorgeously illustrated backgrounds.
