Commenting on the announcement, Lylle Breier, senior vice president, worldwide special events for Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, said: “Of all the Disney animated features, Beauty and the Beast is one of the most beloved and treasured. Now, thanks to the magic of Disney Digital 3D™, our audiences can experience this Academy Award®-winning classic in a whole new way. This special engagement is the perfect entertainment for guests of all ages — from those who grew up with this timeless animated feature, to those who have yet to discover the wonder of this Disney masterpiece for the very first time.”
Beauty and the Beast follows the adventures of Belle, a bright and beautiful young woman who finds escape from her ordinary life by reading books. Meanwhile, off in a castle in the distance, a cruel young prince is cast under a spell that turns him into a tormented beast, and his servants into animated household objects. In order to remove the curse, the Beast must discover a true love who will return his affection. With the help of the castle’s enchanted staff, Belle sees beneath the Beast’s exterior and discovers the heart and soul of a human prince.
