Beauty and the Beast

 (1991)

Beauty and the Beast Blu-ray delivers truly amazing video and audio in this absolutely must-own Blu-ray release

In a quaint French village during the late 18th century, Belle, a bright and beautiful young woman, finds escape from her ordinary life, and the advances of a boorish suitor, Gaston, by reading books. Meanwhile, off in a castle in the distance, a cruel young prince is cast under the spell of an enchantress who turns him into a tormented beast, while transforming his servants into animated household objects. In order to remove the curse, the Beast must discover a true love who will return his affection before the last petal falls from an enchanted rose. When Belle’s inventor father stumbles upon the Beast’s castle and is taken prisoner, Belle comes to the rescue and agrees to take her father’s place. With the help of the castle’s enchanted staff, she sees beneath the Beast’s exterior and discovers the heart and soul of a human prince.

Beauty and the Beast Blu-ray, Video Quality

  5.0 of 5

But how does it all look in high definition? In a word: gorgeous. In two-hundred and sixty-five words? Disney has surpassed my every expectation, rejuvenating yet another beloved animated classic with an utterly stunning 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer; one sure to thrill young newcomers, wow the most hard-hearted cinefiles and leave filmfans of every age in absolute awe. The first thing that struck me? The richness of the film's storybook palette. The silky sheen of a golden gown, the ethereal glow of an enchanted rose, the foreboding shadows of a moonlit forest, the warmth of an ornate ballroom... every splash of color, every vivid primary, every hearthy hue, every rosy cheeked face, earthy tuft of fur and billowing cloak is immaculate. And detail? Not to lose myself to the siren call of hyperbole, but oh, the detail. The fine textures and brush strokes that lend the film's hand-painted backgrounds such personality are intact, the tiniest imperfections in the animators' lineart have been preserved and rendered with care, and every nuance and subtlety is sharper, more refined and ultimately more satisfying than ever before. As remastered catalog titles go, I couldn't be happier. Better still, Disney's technical encode is polished and pristine. I didn't notice any artifacting, print damage, noise, ringing, aliasing or other digital anomaly -- be it negligible or significant -- and banding, the seemingly omnipresent enemy of animation transfers everywhere, is nowhere to be found. What's more, the Blu-ray edition of Beauty and the Beast puts its DVD counterparts to shame, making this an indisputably essential upgrade. It isn't often that I walk away from a video presentation without a single complaint, but I was entranced from beginning to end. Well done, Disney. Well done.


Beauty and the Beast Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Perfection is a lofty ideal and an even loftier pursuit. Be that as it may, Beauty and the Beast's invigorating, wholly enveloping DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 surround track achieves sonic perfection. Dialogue doesn't squat in the center channel, it steps out into the center of the soundfield and plays with any effects and ambience in the fray. Voices are strong and sturdy, shouts and whispers are clear and stable, and every chiming clock, flickering flame, tinkering teapot and clinking dishware is masterfully prioritized. Moreover, LFE output is bold and weighty, yet agile and precise; the rear speakers are bursting with activity, transforming an already immersive experience into an absorbing one; directionality is aggressive, separation is excellent and pans are startlingly smooth; and dynamics make this one of Disney's most memorable catalog mixes. Close your eyes and listen as Alan Menken's music floods the soundstage. Note the clarity of Howard Ashman's lyrics, the swan song of each passing note and the grace of every run and crescendo. Now listen to the Beast's gruff growl as it tears through the silence of his castle, the soft tip-tap of Belle's footsteps, the rabble-rabble-rabble of an angry mob and the crack of thunder high above. It isn't often that an AV presentation wraps you in its arms and invites you into the world of a film, but Beauty and the Beast's marvelous DTS-HD monster does just that.
