BEAUTY AND THE BEAST is one of the most beloved animated films of all time. This "tale as old as time" helped to launch a new wave of popularity for animated features that continues to this day and was the first animated film to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture. The film is a musical re-telling of the traditional fairy tale in which Belle, an adventurous French girl, befriends and eventually falls in love with a mysterious half-man, half-beast. The film's memorable title song is sung by Angela Lansbury as Mrs. Potts.
