The Aristocats: Special Edition Blu Ray Review

The Aristocats: Special Edition Blu Ray Review

Before the whole CG and 3D animated boom happened, Disney was king of the hill when it comes to full-length 2D animated films. Unfortunately, Disney hasn’t been as aggressive as they should be when it comes to re-releasing their classic 2D titles on Blu-Ray. There are probably a lot of reasons for this, but chief among them is practicality, as the amount of time and effort a studio needs in restoring and remastering said classics would not be practical in terms of cost. The alternative is to release a shoddy, aged product, which isn’t good business either.

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.
