superb.........By williamsgwynfa (627 reviews) from gwaenysgor , 01 Apr 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]my daughter loved this film. It begins with a series of stained-glass windows, telling the tale of how a young prince, turns away a poor old woman, who begs for shelter from a storm, offering a single rose in exchange. She turns into a powerful enchantress, and tells him he will become a hideous Beast, unless he can find a maiden to love him, before the last petal of the rose falls.
Nine years pass, and Belle, the bookish daughter of an inventor comes to live nearby.
She is being courted by Gaston, a man whose advances she doesn't deserve or really want.
Gaston is a great comical character, who is swooned over by the local girls.
Belle's father gets lost, and taking shelter in the Beast's castle gets imprisoned by him.
This scene is quite frightening, as is the following scene in which Belle, finding his horse Philippe, sets out through wolf-infested forests to find him.
The Beast agrees to exchange her father for Belle, but only after his wise butler Lumiere, hints that she might be 'the girl' to break the spell.
One of the lovely touches to this film, is the part played by the servants, now tranformed into furniture.
Lumiere is the wise and sentimental candlestick, and Mrs Potts (voiced by Angela Lansbury) is the housekeeper, who was turned into a teapot, along with her son chip, who is a little cup.
they persuade the good side of the Beast to show itself; but his valet, the conceited clock, is vain and cowardly.
The Beast's staff are thrilled, because if she and their master, the Beast, fall in love, they will all be freed from the enchantment, so they do everything they can, to make this happen. But will Belle be able to see past the outward appearance?
watch it to find out - you will not be disappointed.

Excellent Family Film...By yanbart (135 reviews) , 05 Nov 2013Really Really Good. A perfect family film for a Friday night. We all enjoyed it, a refreshing change with great spirit...
Not The BestBy buffyrules (368 reviews) from southend on sea , 11 Jun 2013Not the best disney film but certainly got the ball rolling for a new generation of films. Just doesn't have as many great songs as the films that followed it. Still very watchable though.
