In the original 1992 VHS, when the enchanted rose is shown during the prologue, its pink glow effect begins slowly from the center of the rose before covering the screen with a brief flash as a way of transitioning to the next angle that zooms out from the Beast's castle. In all subsequent versions of the film, the rose's glow animation has changed, in that it engulfs the bell jar in a pink light almost immediately, hiding the rose for a moment before flashing across the screen. In addition, the 1992 VHS depicts that the sparkles emitting from the rose's blossom had already started before the flash effect had receded. In all subsequent versions, the sparkle shower does not begin until the flash is gone. See more »
Who can resist this beautiful story? I love the fact that even though Belle hated Beast at first, she saw underneath that he was a kind and gentle soul, and didn't care what he looked like on the outside! And what girl hasn't known a Gaston in their lives? I thought it was so great how he was put in his place! All the voiceovers are amazing, especially Robby Benson as Beast. Another Disney masterpiece.
