Beauty and the Beast 3D coming for your money

11.09.2011

After the insane success of THE LION KING 3D (it's now the number nine grossing film of all time) you can bet that Disney's been scrambling to get all of their other hits back in theaters. The next one will be BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, and Disney just released the first poster to promote it.

Originally released in 1991, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is a classic "tale as old as time" that follows the adventures of Belle, a bright young woman imprisoned in the castle of a mysterious beast and his enchanted staff, who must learn the most important lesson of all – that true beauty comes from within. BEAUTY AND THE BEAST was the first animated film ever nominated for an Academy Award® for Best Picture, earning an additional five Oscar® nominations and winning two. It has grossed $380.4 million worldwide.

I bet they bump another 100 million on that number, at least.

Say what you will, but BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is one of the best Disney movies around, and it's incredibly smart for the house the mouse built to rerelease these films. Adults who loved it as kids will go see it again, people who were too young to see it the first time around and only knew it through home video will jump at the chance to see it in theaters. 3D or not, I wish more studios would take note from this, and start rereleasing their old classics in limited runs. 

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST hits theaters January 13, 2012. Here are the dates for the rest of Disney's planned 3D rereleases.

FINDING NEMO – September 14, 2012

MONSTERS INC. – January 18, 2013 

THE LITTLE MERMAID – September 13, 2013

Ill be seeing this for sure. I really would like to see Alladin be rereleased in 3D. And definitely Fantasia 3D would be awesome as well.

Oh yeah, the 3D thing. I won't be partaking, but it seems like a no-brainer w/ these kiddies today. I'll tell you what though, I'd see Fantasia 3D opening night.

Man, we JUST bought this on BluRay cause our twin toddlers are all about PWINTHESSES. My wife and I were in shock how bad it looks. I don't know if it was the transfer process or the flick was overrated from the beginning. It looks like how I imagine the Disney straight to video sequels would look. We have SnowWhite, SleepingBeauty, the original Pooh and LittleMermaid on DVD & they all look fantastic.

It's the transfer that is giving it a cheap look. If you look at the making of or the documentary, SLEEPING BEAUTY, you can see the original print was softer and the images flow better because they're not intentionally separated from the background. The odd thing is that this abortion only started recently with bluray presentations, the DVDs like you mentioned are slightly reprocessed but not as distracting. Im confused why Disney is forcibly changing their 90s pillar films to look cheap.

Cool cool...
But 'B&tB 3D coming for your money'... Yawn, like they are demanding you are manditorily obliged to see it. Get over yourself or douche the sand out of your vag.
3D is the only reason you're getting a chance to see these films on the big screen again. Say thanks and move along.

You Know This Came Out in Limited Release Before Lion King, Right?

It was screened for 2 weeks at the El Capitan in LA, they just didnt really promote it. But now that Lion King was so profitable they're releasing it nationwide. I saw it at the El Capitan and LOVED it. The movie naturally lends itself to some great three dimensional scenes. I don't love 3D, in fact I usually choose the 2D version if I have the choice, but this was fantastic in 3D.

Has anyone else noticed Disney's heavily computerized reprocessed animation on their DVDs & now Bluray releases ? The animation used to be film like quality with soft lines blending naturally with the background. Now however everything appears to have been retraced with a sharpie and the colors are distractingly too bright making the characters look seperate from the background. Seeing the films during their original theatrical run and VHS, I find these I guess "remastered" prints abtrocious

Seeing the films during their original theatrical run and VHS, I find these I guess "remastered" prints abtrocious and not represenative of the original films, especially BEAUTY & LION blurays. Rather than enhacing the film they appear to be Don Bluth Disney knockoffs.

Can't blame them

Watching Lion King 3D was actually quite a joy, as I hadn't seen it since my childhood before then. Same goes for Beauty and the Beast, so I'll probably catch that too.

I'm guessing that's what Disney's going for, and if it works, it works. And the 3D isn't completely shitty, so I'm not complaining.

I'm more excited by the Pixar movies

coming to 3-D. Never been a big fan of the "animated renaissance" movies, except for Lion King, but Finding Nemo and Monsters Inc. are pure gold.
