Beauty and the Beast 3D (2010)

Walt Disney Pictures’ 1991 animated classic Beauty and the Beast returns to the big screen in 3D.

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.

A uniquely elegant and entertaining mix of hand-drawn classicism and high-tech innovation.

The joy here is the depth and detail applied to both the animation and characterisation

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.

I was so excited when I heard Beauty and the Beast 3D was coming to cinemas in NZ! It's one of my all time favourite Disney movies, so I knew it was going to be good no matter what. The 3D was an added bonus - it looked fantastic. LOVED it.

Re: Theresa, Hoyts would have to partner with Reading to show it. Embassy doesn't have 3D capability. I love this movie, annoyed its not coming to Wellington (...yet?) but it's unlikely in the near future due to the fact that Hoyts on Manners probably had to shut due to loss of custom to Reading on Courtney Central, so a partnership is unlikely, but hey...

Amazing! I had no idea this was to be released internationally, I was excited for my American friends but didn't have a hope in the world for us here in New Zealand. I am ecstatic.

How come Wellington is missing out again? What a crock! Wellywood? I think not.

This is one of my all time favourite movies...and I am extremely disappointed that this will not be playing anywhere in Wellington! There are no Hoyts cinemas in Wellington, so surely hoyts could have (and should have) teamed up with one of the independent cinemas such as the Embassy to show this movie.
