Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas Special Edition

Back in 1997, Disney hoped to recapture some of the magic of their Beauty and the Beast masterpiece, with an animated holiday special. Neither a sequel nor a prequel, this “midquel” takes place within the timeline of the original Beauty and the Beast, after the fight with wolves and before Beast gives Belle the castle’s library. Still a grumpy guy, Beast forbids Christmas, prompting Belle, Cogsworth, Lumiere, Mrs. Potts, Chip, and others to convince him that Christmas is a good holiday. I mean, obviously — presents!! On November 22nd, nearly 15 years later, Disney is bringing the holiday adventure home with Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas Special Edition, available on Blu-ray, DVD, and Movie Download.
