Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has announced that Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas will be available to own on DVD, Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere on October 25, 2016 (now available for pre-order).
Following the success of the first release in the new Walt Disney Signature Collection series, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment is set to release the 25th anniversary edition of the immortal classic, Beauty and the Beast, on Blu-ray September 20, 2016 (now available for pre-order), with an earlier digital release on September 6.
Twenty-five years ago, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast broke ground as the first animated feature film to receive an Academy Award® nomination for best picture, and now this tale as old as time joins the Walt Disney Signature Collection on Sept. 6 on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere, and on Sept. 20 on Blu-ray™ and DVD.
Earlier this morning, Walt Disney Studios debuted the first teaser trailer for Disney’s Beauty and the Beast live action remake (March 17, 2017), which you can find embedded below.
Eight-time Oscar®-winning composer Alan Menken and three-time Oscar nominee and Honorary Academy Award® recipient Angela Lansbury will join voice actors Paige O’Hara, Richard White and Robby Benson, supervising animators Andreas Deja, Mark Henn and Glen Keane, key story artist Brenda Chapman, Oscar-nominated producer Don Hahn, and director Gary Trousdale onstage for a 25th anniversary celebration of Beauty and the Beast on Monday, May 9, at 7:30 p.m. at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Samuel Goldwyn Theater in Beverly Hills.
With just a few days before the second title in the Twisted Tales series, Once Upon A Dream is released, Disney has debuted the cover for the third book, As Old As Time, slated for a September 6, 2016 release. As with its predecessors by Liz Braswell, the book takes a Disney classic (Beauty and the Beast) and changes one of the key elements to put an entire new spin on the story. As the official publisher’s description explains:
Earlier today, actor Josh Gad met up with Gaston outside Gaston’s Tavern in the New Fantasyland area of the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World in Orlando. Gad, who provides the voice of Olaf for Frozen, also took on the role of Gaston’s sidekick, LeFou, in the live action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast (March 17, 2017).

Earlier this evening, Disney legend Alan Menken kicked off a new series at Lincoln Center in New York City titled ‘Artist to Artist’ with the premise that a newcomer to the industry would have the opportunity to interview a master of the craft.
While the majority of the interview included Menken recalling his storied legacy in the world of musical theatre, the closing end of the production ended on what Menken is currently working on. Of the numerous projects Menken was able to recall (the Tangled Disney Cruise Line show and animated series not among them), one he spoke at length about was the Beauty and the Beast live action remake starring Emma Watson.
The Oriental Land Company, the owner and operator of the Tokyo Disney Resort, has announced plans for development in both its Disneyland and DisneySea theme parks focusing on Beauty and the Beast, Alice in Wonderland and Scandinavia, with a focus on Frozen.
Frozen will be highlighted in a brand new port of Tokyo DisneySea focused on Scandinavia. The port will be approximately the size of the Arabian Coast port and will be located south of the Lost Delta port. Tentative plans for the area, which are expected to be finalized in 2015, call for multiple new attractions, shops, dining and other facilities.
