Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
The voice cast from the original film (minus Angela Lansbury's Mrs. Potts) provides much of the magic in this produced-for-video addition to the Beauty and the Beast library. Like Cinderella II: Happily Ever After, this is not so much a sequel as an omnibus of tales, each delivering a heavy-handed moral every bit as subtle as the Beast's roar. In the first story, forgiveness is "The Perfect Word" when a misunderstanding between warmhearted Belle (Paige O'Hara) and the still prickly Beast (Robby Benson) escalates. Another misunderstanding threatens to douse the romance between feather duster Fifi and candelabra Lumiere (Jerry Orbach) in "Fifi's Folly." The castle staff's bickering threatens to sabotage plans to cheer up a gloomy Mrs. Potts in "Mrs. Potts's Party." In "Broken Wing," the Beast cages an injured bird and demands that she sing. It's all about "listening with our hearts" and treating each other with "trust and mutual respect," yadda-yadda-yadda. This plays like the pilot for a Beauty and the Beast TV series, but undiscriminating younger viewers will be enchanted.

    Belle's Magical World

    Beauty and the Beast: Belle's Magical World fills the gap for those of us who have to wait till 2010 to see the original Beauty and the Beast. Basically this is most-likely a collection of stories that were the pilot for a television series that never got of the ground. Unlike some of the other Disney animated movies, Beauty and the Beast did not leave much time line for a TV series, and while this collection is enjoyable it was probably a good idea for Disney to scrap the project. The majority of the stories revolve around Belle and the Beast arguing, with the Beast learning his lesson but in the next story the Beast is back to his old self. I think fans of the original movie will like to have this in their collection, and I think children will like it to, though it is about 93 minutes which is longer than most Disney movies, but the four segments can be paused and then resumed later to keep the kids from being bored.
