The Disney company is giving us all a wonderful New Year’s present by issuing a bigger, spiffier version of its ten-year old masterpiece, and you should respond with a resolution to see it. Beauty and the Beast, one of the only animated feature ever nominated for the best picture Oscar reappears in enhanced form, digitally remastered, and this time in Disney 3D. Sounding and looking wonderful on the big screen once again. But is it really worth seeing, this time in 3D?

The new Beauty and the Beast is exactly like the old Beauty and the Beast. This time with added feel of depth. I came out of the theater thinking that was the best 3D experience I’ve ever had. There is always a huge issue that I have with 3D, it makes everything darker. Somehow with The Lion King and now Beauty and the Beast Disney has found a way to post convert a film and over come this issue. You can tell Disney has put years and years of effort into this 3D conversion.

After the passing of a decade, it’s now clear that Beauty represents the summit of a second golden age of traditional Disney animation, the one that began with The Little Mermaid (1989) and continued through Aladdin (1992). For all its success The Lion King (1994), which followed this masterful trio (all by the inspired songwriting team of Ashman and Menken), represented the beginning of a decline which has continued until now. The finest Disney animated productions since then have been in the newer CGI mode–the Toy Story films, A Bug’s Life and, more recently, Toy Story 3.

My only big issue with this is that still 3D is not adding something over-the-top special. The reason that you should go see this movie is because it is Beauty and the Beast. Getting to hear the classic songs in the theater, that alone is something special. The 3D is just the cherry on the top.
