Ages Adult By: Charles Solomon Series: Beauty and the Beast

The Beauty and the Beast legend has a universal appeal; the fairy tale exists in numerous versions throughout the world. After all of the ups and downs, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast was released in 1991 to rave reviews and record-breaking box-office business. The film was widely hailed as a technical and aesthetic breakthrough and remains the only animated feature ever to be nominated for an Oscar for best picture. This authoritative book features interviews with artists, voice-over actors, and executives, and transcripts of meetings and story sessions. Illustrations abound throughout, including sketches, caricatures, sequences of animation drawings, and preliminary artwork from discarded scenes. This updated edition-now capturing the making of the 2017 live-action film starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens-is a must-have for any fan of the “Tale as Old as Time.”
