Beauty and the Beast (1991)

Walt Disney Pictures’ 1991 classic animated tale about finding the beauty beyond the skin and love that transcends vanity.

The story follows the bright and beautiful Belle (voice of Paige O’Hara) who’s taken prisoner by a mysterious beasty (Robby Benson) in his castle. Despite her precarious situation, Belle befriends the castle’s enchanted staff – a teapot, a candelabra and a mantel clock, among others – and ultimately learns to see beneath the Beast’s exterior to discover the heart of a prince.

On its initial release, Beauty was the first animated film to cross the $US 100 million mark and was the first animated film to receive a Best Picture nomination.

Best Original Score and Original Song at the Academy Awards 1992. Best Film (Comedy/Musical), Golden Globes 1992.

It is a surprise, in a time of sequels and retreads, that the film is so fresh and altogether triumphant in its own right.

There's enough wit and ingenuity in Roger Allers's story and Howard Ashman and Alan Menken's songs to give the CGI whizzkids a run for their money.

Slipped around all my roadblocks and penetrated directly into my strongest childhood memories, in which animation looked more real than live-action features.

With its strong characters and lively storytelling, animated or not, this deserves its place alongside the cinema greats.

The movie that restored animation's, and in particular Disney's, fortunes, watching it again on the big screen only reminded me what an endearing and enduring classic Beauty is. And I still had a tear in my at the end.
