As a child my youngest sister and I dreamed of owning all the big Disney movies on video, we knew all the stories and songs by heart (I am surprised how many of the songs I still remember!). Now that I have kids myself and see how much they enjoy the Disney movies I am determined to get my hands on all the big titles so we can watch them together. But that is easier said than done as not all Disney movies are permanently available, some have already returned to the Disney vault and who knows if and when they will become available again?

One of those titles that will soon go back into the vault is Beauty and the Beast, so make sure you grab it while you still can. I think we all remember Belle, a lovely girl who lives with her father in a small village. Everyone loves Belle, including the horrible and very unlikeable Gaston who seems to think Belle would make the perfect wife for him. One day Belle’s father ends up in a mysterious, dark castle where he is being held by a frightening Beast.

Loyal as she is Belle offers to take her father’s place, promising to stay in the castle for the rest of her life. So who exactly is the unfriendly Beast and what is the secret behind the beautiful rose he is protective of? Belle is not impressed by the unfriendly Beast, luckily there is the enchanted castle staff to make her life more bearable.

Against her expectations Belle and the Beast start to grow closer and form a friendship, he even lets her leave to help her dying father. The Beast realises he is falling in love with Belle, and the Beast has stolen Belle’s heart too. When Gaston discovers this he plans an attack on the Beast and gathers a mob to help him. Will this be the end of the love story of Belle and the Beast, or will real love conquer and maybe, just maybe, lift the magic spell that has held the castle and the Beast in its grip for way too long?

As a child I never knew how the Beast became the way he was, I don’t think it ever mattered to me and in their turn my twins have no idea either. All they see is the beautiful Belle, the absolutely gorgeous castle staff and the character transformation of the Beast. In their words ‘At first he was grumpy and angry and Belle made him happy’, and in the end isn’t that just a wonderful message?

Beauty and the Beast is available on Blu-ray ($49.95) or DVD ($39.95) and is on sale at major retailers across Australia until July 31, 2012.

  1. Jasmine. She has a tiger for a pet, I want one too!

  2. Snow White, not only does she win the heart of her handsome Prince, she defeats her evil step mother and is adored by her harem of mini-men!!

  3. Cinderella, in the end she has it all and more & get’s to stick it right up her evil step sisters and step mother.

  4. My daughter loves Ariel from The Little mermaid as they both have red hair and my daughter wishes she was a mermaid.

  5. Tiana out of Princess and the Frog, because she had a dream of opening her own restaurant and working her way to get there, she never thought or dreamed of being a princess and yet in the end she was.

  6. Belle, because she did a selfless act of love by offering herself to stay in the castle instead of her father…thats real family love….but as a kid i just thought she was a beautiful princess and wanted to be just like her!

  7. I love Jasmine! She has the best outfits, a gorgeous palace, Aladdin & a flying carpet! What more could a girl ask for?

  8. Ariel has always been my favourite Disney as i love her sense of adventure and her willingness to sacrifice everything she knows for love ♥

  36. Love Bright Star Kids chalk board stickers. The cat is one my kids would get a lot of fun out of.

  37. I had a baby that would chew everything he came into contact with so he would have loved a Baltic Amber Teething Necklace from Gummi Babies.

  38. Looking at you kid have a great Three Little Trees Red Bolt Romper. I love the one piece without feet. My son had big feet that never fit normal rompers.

  39. GR8X have wonderful bags but their Single Stretch Swaddling Wraps are gorgeous too. I love the sky blue but mushroom print looks cool too.

  40. My favourite is Belle, such beauty without the arrogance. So loving and gentle to all creatures without discrimination. These traits are what appeals to me and therefore I try to instill into my own children. And in the end, all good things come to those that wait and deserve them.

  41. My favourite is Mulan as she is strong and brave and shows that girls can do anything. She’s also a bit of a forgotten princess 🙂

  47. The princess that shone my heart was a young lady named Belle.
    She saw through the creature to see nothing but tormenting kindness.
    The spell was broken and the beast was forever grateful.
