Beauty and the Beast used award winning technology at the time to give many scenes the illusion of flying through the depth of a space (think ballroom chandelier). With the detailed shadowing and long view scenes it's obvious that they they wanted to give you as close to that experience and the CAP animators could get. I think that the original work will only be enhanced with the 3D. I know, it's not the popular train of thought, but it's mine. Beauty and the Beast was the first animated film to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture. It also has the honor of being one of only two animated films included in AFI's "100 Years... 100 Passions" list, that contains the 100 greatest love stories of all time.
I can't wait to see this film again in the theater. I can't wait for more children to get to have the experience. So many children have only seen the Disney classics on video, but you just can't replace the experience of seeing it at the theater. So... Let's Go To The Movies!
In theaters January 13, 2012.
