12 Reasons Why “Beauty And The Beast” Is One Of The Best Disney Movies Of All Time

“Beauty and the Beast” is an animated fantasy romantic movie produced by Walt Disney, focusing on the relationship between a cursed prince called “the Beast” and a wise girl named Belle. To break the curse, the Beast must learn to love Belle and receive her love in return, or he will be turned into a monster forever.

With its compelling storyline and the good-life values it conveys, “Beauty and the Beast” quickly gained huge success and it even became the first animated film to receive an Oscar nomination.

Film critics and loyal Disney fans, for the past decades, have listed many factors attributing to the incredible success of this film. And all of the items listed below are some of the most prominent reasons explaining why the movie can easily steal audiences’ hearts.

#1 It gets quite meta

Belle’s favorite book has details similar to her own life story. For instance, there is a scene when Belle says about this book “Here’s where she meets Prince Charming, but she won’t discover that it’s him till chapter three”. In “Beauty and the Beast”, Belle doesn’t discover the Beast’s true identity until the third and final act of the film.

#2 The spectacular makeover of The Beast

Different from the usual movies, in “Beauty and the Beast”, the character with a breathtaking makeover scene is the male lead. The moment the Beast changes his hairstyle and puts on a luxurious outfit makes every audience’s heart flutter.

#3 This movie can win the heart of book lovers

We can see the books appearing throughout the movie. Belle, the heroine, is a true bookworm and always has her nose in books. And in one of the most memorable scenes of the movies, the gift that the Beast prepares to win Belle’s heart is an entire library of books. What book lover doesn’t dream of having this massive book collection?

#4 The friendship and rivalry between Cogsworth and Lumière

The quarrel between the ugly clock and the wise lampstand over the years is one of the most interesting things from the film. There must be many fans of the bromance between these two, right?

#5 Gaston is the first male villain of Disney

Gaston is surely the real villain: he’s fake, he’s old-fashioned, he rallies villagers to defeat the Beast, he doesn’t support women’s reading and several bad habits. Before “Beauty and the Beast”, Disney’s villains were all women, such as Ursula, the Evil Queen, etc. Therefore, the appearance of Gaston brought a new color to Disney movies.

#6 It’s a movie of redemption

At the beginning of the film, the Beast appears as a pessimistic character, always showing hatred towards everyone around him. However, with the sincere help of Belle and her friends, the Beast begins to change his attitude, letting go of his hatred and accepting everyone’s love. He learns how to love those around him, and learns to love himself too.

#7 The story celebrates the uniqueness

There are many characters with unique personalities in this movie: It’s the girl Belle who loves reading books, it’s Maurice who always wants to make useful inventions for life, and it’s the Beast who’s thought to be dangerous just because of his appearance. Despite being considered “different”, they both have a sincere heart and are the true heroes of the movie.

#8 Belle is more forward-thinking than the previous Disney heroines

Belle has great intelligence and loves reading, regularly visiting the library, and searching for human knowledge. She takes the initiative in deciding her life without being forced by others. And the most special thing about her is, for her, love and marriage aren’t first and foremost on her to-do list. All of which sets Belle apart and more progressive than some of her predecessors.

#9 The spellbinding prologue

The opening of the film is a series of brightly stained glass windows depicting how the Beast was cursed and suffered his miserable fate. All the scenes in the first two minutes along with the haunting music make the audience get goosebumps.

#10 Belle’s absolute loyalty to the people she cares about

Belle doesn’t care about how others think of her but only wants to protect those she loves. For instance, she always stands by her father, Maurice, and supports him while everyone else says he’s crazy. She also defends the Beast when the villagers gather to terminate him.

#11 The breathtaking ballroom scene

The luxurious setting, the mesmerizing soundtrack, and the sweet atmosphere when the Beast and Belle shared their first dance, all of these factors leave a deep impression on the audience and make this ballroom scene one of the most epic scenes of Disney.

#12 The good-life values it conveys

“Beauty and the Beast” has conveyed many life lessons and inspired the audience positively. And the lesson of inner beauty is the most expensive lesson of them all. The Beast has a scary appearance but has a kind heart, while Gaston, despite his handsomeness, is actually the ugliest character. The movie successfully teaches us that “never judge a book by its cover”.
