beauty and the beast

Be our guest and watch these clips from Beauty and the Beast

It was 21 years ago that the story of Belle (Paige O'Hara) and Beast (Robby Benson) flooded into theatres and enchanted audiences with the fairytale story of a small-town girl who, in order to save her kooky, inventor dad, ends up a captive of Beast, a prince under a spell that can only be broken by true love.

Though based on the 18th work by Jeanne-Marie Le Prince de Beaumont, Disney's instant-classic version added talking objects - a candlestick, a clock, a teapot, etc. voiced by the likes of Jerry Orbach and Angela Lansbury - and a fiercely independent heroine who was able to see beyond Beast's horrific outside to the loving heart that was beating within. Nominated for a Best Picture Oscar, which was a major coup for an animated film, it's being brought back to theatres this weekend in 3D, allowing young parents to introduce the movie to their kids and generally making anyone alive and aware in 1991 nostalgic for the musical marvel.

Get warmed up for the real thing with a handful of clips from Beauty and the Beast in 3D.
