Background, 8 January 2012
Author: Grann-Bach ( from Denmark

This is one of the documentaries on the Diamond Edition 2-Disc DVD of Beauty and The Beast, and the only one that has its own page here on IMDb. Covering several animated Disney features(and starting each with a quote about literature from someone famous, and most of them genuinely aren't pretentious), this goes into(giving a full synopsis of the plot, and yes, of course, spoiling them) Beauty and The Beast(who'd have guessed), The Lion King, Pocahontas, The Jungle Book, Sleeping Beauty, Mulan and Hunchback of Notre Dame, and gives us the historical facts, legend, myth or otherwise what inspired and what was the original source material for them(well, not Hamlet for The Lion King, in spite of how obvious it is). It consists of clips from the movies, narration(some by an actor from the picture itself, and when not, someone from the cast of, once again, Beauty and The Beast) as well as stills and artwork(of what isn't in the famous version, or the one by this studio). This is quite informational and interesting, and the menu allows you to just watch the one or ones you wish to, though it is all worth your time. There is a little disturbing content in this. I recommend this to fans of the flicks it explores. 8/10
