Beauty and the Beast, which is currently this year’s highest grossing film, hits Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD on June 6. Viewers who purchase the movie can watch the theatrical cut, the premiere cut with overture, and a sing-along version. Overtures are very rare these days in cinema, and it will be interesting to see how that’s seamlessly blended into the movie.
As expected, a ton of special features for the film are available. Emma Watson, who plays Belle in the film, hosts the a featurette (“The Women Behind Beauty and the Beast”) which spotlights several talented women who helped bring this transcendent tale to the silver screen. Director Bill Condon is also on hand to introduce the 10 minutes worth of deleted scenes and explain why they were each left off the final cut (one of the scene features Gaston, played by Luke Evans, attempting to woo Belle).
Also included in the special features includes the segment “Making a Moment with Celine Dion” which has the pop icon discussing the Beauty and the Beast song “How Does A Moment Last Forever.” The music video for “How Does A Moment Last Forever,” as well as the music video for Ariana Grande and John Legend’s version of “Beauty and the Beast,” is also featured in the collection.
