Beauty and the Beast (1991)

The new live in action version of the movie is all set to release in March, 2017 and while I eagerly look forward to watch this movie, I had to go back and watch the 1991 film again. This film was more of gift from Disney to an entire decade of kids. From its songs to the characters and talking household objects, everything was so enticing!!
