Beauty and the Beast IMAX Synopsis

(by Here is a synopsis on the IMAX release of Disney's Beauty and the Beast which will open on a record 100 IMAX theaters worldwide (and other giant screen theaters) on January 1, 2002:

Technology, artistry and imagination join forces to make the 10th anniversary of Walt Disney Pictures’ timeless animated classic, “Beauty and the Beast,” a real cause for celebration. For this special return engagement, the film makes its giant-screen debut in a digitally-remastered format with improved picture and sound quality. Adding to the excitement is a never-before-seen animated sequence featuring the song “Human Again,” written for the original film by Academy Award-winning songwriters Howard Ashman and Alan Menken. This newly animated scene features Belle, the Beast and an ensemble of enchanted objects (Mrs. Potts, Lumiere, Cogsworth, etc.) which express their hopes and desires to resume their human forms.

Based on the beloved fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast follows the fantastic adventures of Belle, a beautiful young French girl who yearns to escape the tedium of her provincial life and the advances of her macho-but-conceited suitor, Gaston. Belle’s life takes an unexpected turn when she finds herself imprisoned by a brooding Beast, whose mysterious past hold the key to their future. “Be Our Guest” and see why this animated favorite ranks one of the Studios’ best and the only animated feature to ever receive a Best Picture Oscar nomination.
