BEAUTY AND THE BEAST home release is just as enchanting as the film
One of the most beloved Disney animated movies of all time recently became one of the top grossing films for 2017 when it was relaunched as a live-action reboot. While we may somewhat wince with every announcement of a new live action movie reboot, it seems that the trend is quite lucrative and really, Disney is doing a pretty decent job with it.
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is no exception. And while it wasn’t perfection, it was it was pretty great, and the newly released Blu-ray is pretty awesome, as well.
Hopefully, Disney will continue this trend with live action remakes announced for THE LITTLE MERMAID, ALADDIN, and the THE LION KING, which we got a sneak peek at the D23 Expo.
While in the past, DVD’s and even Blu-ray’s have come with slim pickings in terms of Bonus Features, this is not the cast for BEAUTY AND THE BEAST! With three versions of the film, hours of behind-scenes footage, there is something for everyone.
Here is everything in the Blu-ray for BEAUTY AND THE BEAST:
