Experience Disney's Beauty and the Beast in Three New Ways

Fans who bring home “Beauty and the Beast” will be able to experience the movie all over again in three different ways:

  1. the original theatrical cut,
  2. the premiere cut with overture, and
  3. a musical experience with a sing-along version (kids of all ages will love that one). 

One of the most fun things about home releases generally are all of the bonus extras that you get and this release of Beauty and the Beast is no exception. In this release, viewers can get up close and personal with the filmmakers to see how this beloved animated film was transformed into a new live-action classic. There will also be a feature on the amazing women behind the enchanted tale, hosted by Emma Watson. Plus, there are more than 10 minutes of deleted scenes along with musical extras. This includes the “Beauty and the Beast” music video starring Ariana Grande and John Legend, and Celine Dion’s heartfelt take on the new song “How Does a Moment Last Forever.”
