Beauty and the Beast The 25th Anniversary Edition

Beauty and the Beast The 25th Anniversary Edition
Beauty Brite Disclosure

I remember the first time I watched Beauty and the Beast. It was in the early 90s and my parents let us rent a few movies for the weekend. I chose Beauty and the Beast and I believe my brother chose a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie. Since we had the movies for the whole weekend, I remember watching Beauty and the Beast several times!

Looking back, I believe we bought the movie a few years later and eventually bought the soundtrack. I loved listening to the songs over and over.

Beauty and the Beast The 25th Anniversary Edition joins the Walt Disney Signature Collection on September 6 on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere. On September 20th, the movie will be available on Blu-ray™ and DVD.

 Beauty and the Beast The 25th Anniversary Edition DVDs

Walt Disney Pictures’ magical animated classic “Beauty and the Beast” captures the magical journey of Belle (voice of Paige O’Hara), an independent and intelligent, modern-day heroine who’s taken prisoner by a hideous beast (voice of 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 and soul of a prince.

Even though I do not have a daughter, I am still thrilled to own the Beauty and the Beast The 25th Anniversary Edition! I plan on watching the movie as much as I can.

Watching Beauty and the Beast as an adult is so much different. Even as a child, I could relate to Belle because she loves to read. At the time, I loved reading Nancy Drew books. Every book I could get my hands on, I read. My mom bought me most of the series of books, if not all of them.

These days, I don’t read as much as I want to. I feel so busy with life, family, my blogs, etc that I am super picky about what books I read.

Belle is not even smitten by Gaston, even though every other single woman is. As a child, I disliked Gaston and even as an adult, I wouldn’t be able to stand a man like Gaston in real life. He may be “handsome looking” but I find his personality to be unattractive.

 Beauty and the Beast The 25th Anniversary Edition Cover

Belle is viewed as peculiar because she loves to read so much, yet no one takes the time to get to know her. She isn’t like “everyone else” in the village. When Belle meets the castle’s staff and even the Beast, she finds a place where everyone is different. She finds a place where your differences make you unique.

Belle and the Beast fall in love despite their situation. With help from his staff, the Beast learns how to treat people. He was a spoiled prince before he was turned into a Beast and he still acted a bit spoiled when we meets Belle.

The music is memorable and I still sing along when I watch the movie. Belle finds love, the Beast discovers his human side and they learn to love together.

You can purchase Beauty and the Beast The 25th Anniversary Edition at Target, Amazon, Disney Store and Best Buy.
