Storyline

Belle's Magical World comes to life in three charming fantasy adventures presented like chapters in a storybook. In The Perfect Word, a silly misunderstanding between Belle and the Beast leads to a lesson in forgiveness. Then, in Fifi's Folly, a romantic evening for Lumiere and Fifi snowballs into a thrilling plunge down the mountain in a runaway sleigh. In Broken Wing, Belle urges the Beast to free a tiny songbird as an act of kindness. Enriched with gentle lessons and two original songs that seamlessly fold one tale into the next. Written by James Drury <jaguar1@sprint.ca>

Disney Sequels - Profit not Art
23 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Belle's Magical World is nothing more than another low budget straight to video Disney release created with the sole purpose to easily generate funds off the back of successful cinematic releases. Beauty and the Beast is arguably Disney's most notable masterpiece (an innovative (CAPS system) critical and commercial success. It represents a period in Disney animation when a perfect storm of talented artists, composers and lyricists came together to create something simply quite wonderful. It is no surprise that sequels / prequels are periodically released not only to 'cash in', but to also maintain public awareness of the original film (again, to keep the money rolling in)

It is important to understand that any straight to video Disney animation is not produced by the same talented people that make (most) Disney films so special. The scrips are written very quickly and the animation is clearly outsourced to Korean animation studios (much like a great deal (if not all) of Disney TV animation (Phineas and Ferb for example)) What is created is a cheaply produced piece of animation, designed to make the maximum financial return possible. It is not made for longevity like the Disney cinematic classics - it is purely a money making exercise.

A lot of us fall for it because we expect the same kind of standard as represented by the original film, but this is never the case unfortunately. The only audience that would possibly enjoy the straight to video releases are the younger viewers as they are more likely to overlook the shortcomings of the projects.

On a more positive note. Beauty and the Beast the Enchanted Christmas is one of the better examples of these profitable exercises, as the quality of animation (although still sub-par) has a certain edge - a greater sophistication perhaps. If the original film leaves you wanting more, then consider Enchanted Christmas at a push. Otherwise, I'd stick to the classics. Belles Magical World is a dud.
