Why ‘Beauty and the Beast’ was the most popular animated film ever (again)

  • July 5, 2021

I just finished reading Beauty and the Beasts: Book 3, and while it’s not the best film ever made, it’s definitely one of the best animated films of all time.

As the first book of the Beauty and The Beast saga, it is filled with so many great ideas, it takes its time building up the characters, and even the plot is really well-developed.

It’s a book that has grown to be an enormous success, with a box office gross of $1.2 billion and an astonishingly high rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

The Disney-Pixar sequel has also been hailed by critics as one of Pixar’s best animated movies ever.

It also has an amazing soundtrack, including the epic theme song from Beauty and Beyond, which I am sure everyone will sing along to when they see it.

As I write this article, Beauty and Beast is in theaters in the U.S. and Canada, and it will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on March 21. 

Beauty is not just a movie about the adventures of the Beast.

It has many more adventures to come.
