Beauty and the Beast (1991)

Walt Disney’s first production of the this magnificent fairly tale, made in 1991, which has spawned several remakes though not by Disney. It is based on a 1756 french fairy tale written by Jeanne Marie Leprince de Beaumont. Everybody knows the story so not repeating it here. Production values have been scintillating to say the least. Disney has not limited any effort at making it a magnificent cartoon film, worthy of the Oscars which it won later that year. i thought it was Arnold Schwarzenegger who was speaking for the beast, but apparently it turns out be that of Robby Benson, though he sounds similar to Arnold. I like the animals in the movie and their expressions, they are wonderful and comical. There are a lot of comic elements in the movie, which has to be there, otherwise it would have become boring. Disney has taken the realm of cartoon films to another level altogether.
