Twenty-five years ago, I feel in love with the animated classic Beauty and the Beast. To this day, it remains one of my all-time favorite Disney movies. When the news broke that Disney was going to be doing a live action version of this classic, I was excited and skeptical. Would it live up to the original? How would they bring all the amazing characters to life?
I waited with baited breath for every clip release, entertainment story, and sneak peak in hopes of learning more about the new Beauty and the Beast. The more I saw, the more excited I became and when the movie was released in theaters, I immediately bought my ticket. From the minute the opening scene began to close of the last credit, I knew this live action version had won a place in my heart.
This is precisely why I’m excited to announce the release of Beauty and the Beast on Digital HD, Blu-ray™, Disney Movies Anywhere, DVD and On-Demand. Starting today, June 6th, 2017, you can own this tale as old as time for yourself. And in classic Disney style, there are three amazing ways to watch the new Beauty and the Beast – the original theatrical cut, the premiere cut with overture, and a musical experience with sing-along.
In addition to these three versions, you can also watch the movie on DVD, Blue-Ray, or take it along with you as a Digital HD. And let’s not forget all the amazing bonus features available:
- Enchanted Table Read – Join the cast for the movie’s elaborately staged table read, complete with singing and dancing to live music, set pieces and more.

I’ve already spent some quality time with the bonus features and I highly recommend checking out the Table Read. It’s unlike anything you’ve seen before. I also really loved “Days in the Sun” extended song, a Beauty of a Tale and From Song to Screen.
There’s so much to enjoy about this new Blu-Ray+DVD+Digital HD. I can’t wait to share another Beauty and the Beast favorite with my nephew and nieces, who I know are already fans of the animated classic. I have a feeling they will really enjoy the sing-along experience.
