The original Beauty and the Beast, released in 1991, tells the story of a prince who is transformed into a Beast and a young woman named Belle whom he imprisons in his castle. To become a prince again, the Beast must love Belle and win her love in return, or he will remain a Beast forever. The film is considered one of Disney’s best-ever, and was the first animated film to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture. The soundtrack, composed by Alan Menken with lyricist Howard Ashman, was the first animated soundtrack to receive an Album of the Year Grammy nomination.
