After nearly 20 years, one would think we had seen all that Beauty and the Beast had to offer. Au contraire, mon amis (as Lumiere would say), just wait until you see Disney’s contemporary crown jewel in its latest glittering incarnation: the Disney Blu-ray Diamond Edition (available this week).
Newly restored in high definition, you’ll see the modern animated classic spring to life in the format; the storybook settings, rich in previously unseen depth, pop out like, well, a pop-up storybook. From the golden fields of Belle’s farm to the deep shadows of the Beast’s castle, the film’s color palette has never appeared so lush. No question about it, this Beauty is quite a beauty.
