‘Beauty and the Beast’ 3D Blu-ray 5-Disc Set to be Released in October

'Beauty and the Beast' on Disney 3D Blu-rayAhead of any official announcement, we have learned that the 5-disc edition of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast: Diamond Edition (now available for pre-order) will be released in 3D Blu-ray format on October 4, 2011, alongside The Lion King.

At first glance, it does not not appear that the 3D Blu-ray edition of Beauty and the Beast will contain any content not already released in the 2D Diamond Edition released last year. Barring any additional information, the only difference appears to be the inclusion of the 3D version which, of course, will require the use of a Sony PlayStation 3 or 3D blu-ray player, a converter and a 3D capable television.

Thomas Kinkade’s Adds ‘Beauty and the Beast’ to Disney Dreams Collection

'Beauty and the Beast Falling in Love' by Thomas KinkadeAdmittedly we’re a little late to the party, especially since we’ve traditionally been so good at revealing Thomas Kinkade’s newest Disney paintings before he does, but as we always say, if it’s not Baroque, don’t fix it.

Enter the sixth and newest entry to Kinkade’s Disney Dreams collection, Beauty and the Beast Falling in Love.

According to the official description for the painting:

Thomas Kinkade has spent over 700 studio hours on this painting which is the most he has ever spent on any painting (Cinderella and Pinocchio had about 300 hours each).
