Disney Favorite Alive in 3D

There is nothing quite like a timeless fairytale, and there is certainly no better way to relive that childhood magic than in dazzling 3D.

Beauty and the Beast first premiered in theaters in 1991 and I saw it for the first time a few years later, when I was around 5. Even then, in its original form, its heartwarming theme rang true; “do not be deceived by appearances, for beauty is found within.”

As I walked into that theater, I found myself completely surrounded by little children, all vibrant and glowing with anticipation.They were not disappointed.

Disney’s classic has been revitalized and modernized, with an added 3D effect to bring the tale to life. The revamped version did make everything bigger, funnier, scarier and more colorful, and got the viewer more involved.

Thankfully, the movie being in 3D did not take away from the timelessness of this wonderful story. The 3D, which is risky as it can sometimes subtract from a movie, did not take anything away from Beauty and the Beast. Visually enhancing this film simply enhanced the overall experience and made it even more delightful and purely magical. The addition of 3D greatly enriched the film; seeing classic Disney characters galavanting about in full digital 3D was a truly breathtaking experience.

However, by far the best thing about the 3-D rebirth of this classic is that we have the chance to see it on the gig screen. It gives people of all ages a chance to relive that magical moment when they saw it for the first time.

Nothing has been lost with the remake of this ageless film. All the important elements remain, the music is still outstanding, the characters just as loveable and the overall appeal still present. So I would suggest taking your friends, family or even just yourself to see this classic and remind yourself what made you fall in love with it in the first place.

Although this new effect definitely improved the visual quality of the film, in the end it was the classic story that we all know and love that left an impression.
