Behind the Scenes / Beyond the Screen: Disney's Beauty and the Beast

by The Disney Dish Podcast with Jim Hill Media



Recorded live onstage at the Rosen Performing Arts Center in Wayne, NJ, Jim Hill follows the trail of that " ... Tale as Old as Time."

In the very first episode of "Behind the Scenes / Beyond the Screen," Jim talks about why it took Walt Disney Animation Studios decades to figure out how to translate "Beauty and the Beast" to the big screen.

More importantly, how -- once this Kirk Wise / Gary Trousdale film was a success -- the Imagineers then transformed this Academy Award-winning animated feature into something that could be showcased at the Disney theme parks.
