A look behind many of Disney animated movies, 16 March 2009
Author: iksnyzcar from United States

The Story Behind the Story can be found on the second disk of the 2 disk Platimun Edition Beauty and the Beast DVD.

This is a short film is broken up into eight parts. The first part is an introduction and the other seven are each about a different Disney animated movie. The movies include Cinderella, The Lion King, Pocahontas, The Jungle Book, Sleeping Beauty, Mulan, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Each part is narrated by a different actor.

Each part is short only lasting a few minutes. They tell the story about what was the origins on the movie, if it comes from a book, legend, or if it was completely original.

Being a fan of Disney this was a fun short film. If you have ever been curious about where the ideas came from you should definitely check this one out.
