Preview: Beauty and the Beast 3D (2012)


The 1991 animated classic based on a classic French fairy tale has been converted to 3D for a new generation of filmgoers.

  • Poster: B-


It's hard to be original when your film is 20 years old. Still, they have done a sufficient job recreating a world that we all fell in love with.

  • Trailer: B+


As much as I want to balk at Disney's concerted effort to strip money out of audiences by re-releasing a film that was never intended for 3D in the format, but the trailer just brings back memories as hokey as they may now seem (at least the Peabo Bryson/Celine Dion song feels that way).
