It’s that time of year when I think folks who are holiday shopping are crazy. Of course, it never fails, as the holidays close in, I ponder why I didn’t start sooner! So? Whether you’re a list maker, early holiday shopper or, like me, and focused on procrastination, you’ll want to include Disney’s epic fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast and the release of Beauty and the Beast The Enchanted Christmas to this holiday.
I can’t believe it has been 25 years since the original was released. This holiday is a celebration of the 25th anniversary of the original animated classic, The Enchanted Christmas.
Okay, maybe you don’t remember? This is the movie that tells a tale set within the story of the original feature, about Belle spreading Christmas cheer within the confines of Beast’s castle during her time there. It’s a tale of a Christmas past when Belle does her best to warm the Beast’s castle.
The film’s all-star voice cast features Robby Benson as Beast and Paige O’Hara as Belle, along with the castle’s enchanted staff including Jerry Orbach as Lumiere, David Ogden Stiers as Cogsworth, Angela Lansbury as Mrs. Potts, Haley Joel Osment as Chip, Bernadette Peters as Angelique and Tim Curry as a grumpy pipe organ who threatens to ruin the holiday festivities.
The beloved animated classic “Beauty and the Beast” broke ground as the first animated feature film to receive an Academy Award® nomination for best picture and its enchanting story and captivating characters have truly stood the test of time. In celebration of the film’s 25th anniversary and addition to the Walt Disney Signature Collection, the delightful holiday adventure inspired by the timeless tale — “Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas” — will be released on DVD, Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere on Oct. 25.
