Film Synopsis:
Set in and around a quaint French village during the late 18th century, Beauty and the Beast
follows the fantastic adventures of Belle, a bright and beautiful young woman who finds escape
from her ordinary life, and the advances of a boorish suitor, Gaston, by reading books. Meanwhile,
off in a castle in the distance, a cruel young prince is cast under the spell of an enchantress who
turns him into a tormented beast, while transforming his servants into animated household objects.
In order to remove the curse, the Beast must discover a true love who will return his affection
before the last petal falls from an enchanted rose. When Belle’s inventor father stumbles upon the
Beast’s castle and is taken prisoner, Belle comes to the rescue and agrees to take her father’s
place. With the help of the castle’s enchanted staff, she sees beneath the Beast’s exterior and
discovers the heart and soul of a human prince.

Film Accolades:
Beauty and the Beast received two Academy Awards® for music in 1992, three Golden Globes®
for Best Motion Picture, Best Original Score and Best Original Song in 1992, and two Grammy Awards
in 1993. Listed as number seven on the American Film Institute’s Top 100 Animated Films, Beauty
and the Beasthelped define Disney animation for a new generation as the second film in the “Disney
Animation Renaissance” (1989-1999) which launched with The Little Mermaidand revitalized animated
features by captivating mature audiences while still delighting young viewers.

Beauty and the Beastfeatures a cast of top vocal talent. Veteran stage actress and singer Paige
O’Hara is the voice of Belle, one of Disney’s most beloved and independent heroines, and Robby
Benson (TV’s “American Dreams”) delivers a powerful portrayal of the Beast. Three-time Oscar®-

“Law and Order,” “House of Mouse”) shines as the voice of Lumiere, the passionate candelabra,
and David Ogden-Stiers (TV’s “M*A*S*H,” Lilo & Stitch) is Cogsworth, the tightly-wound mantel
clock who functions as the head of the household.

Beauty and the Beast was also the first Disney animated film to inspire a Broadway stage
production by the same name. Highlighting the film’s music by Alan Menken and Howard
Ashman, seven new songs were written for the stage musical. Beauty… was nominated for
nine Tony Awards in 1994 and ran on Broadway for 5,464 performances until 2007, becoming
