Beauty And The Beast - Diamond Edition

4

A definitive version of the romantic Disney classic

Beauty and the beast review

The “last of the red-hot fairytales” (as producer Don Hahn lauds it) returns with a fresh coat of Blu on its Oscar-nominated marriage of classicism and unobtrusive CG embellishments.

Extras include Alan Menken’s musical masterclass on composing the Oscar-winning songs, which show how ailing lyricist Howard Ashman brought Broadway smarts to this classy, feminist take on Belle and her beastly beau’s budding romance.

‘Beyond Beauty’ is a detailed doc on the film’s fraught production process, and you get the 2002 Platinum Edition extras too.

As ever, it’s a time-limited release, so get it while it’s hot.
