Beauty And The Beast is suggested by many to be the crowning achievement of the Disney Renaissance period. I as usual with animation it seems am not as enthusiastic as some in that regard, though once again do not take that the wrong. The animation is splendid for the most part though I must admit I've never cared for the CGI ballroom. The characters are memorable though I've also felt Belle is perhaps slightly one note in order to be opposite of say a Snow White, though in the end she's really not the opposite anyways. The Beast though is great, as are the household items, and of course Gaston makes for a memorable villain. Add in some terrific songs, and you have a very good animated film.
