Cannon Movie Tales Finally on DVD!
Heidi Anne Heiner | SurLaLune Fairy | 06/06/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"John Savage is the Beast/Prince and Rebecca De Mornay is Beauty in this Cannon Movie Tale musical based on the beloved French fairy tale.

Here's the movie's description available from Sony Pictures: "The beautiful Rebecca De Mornay (The Three Musketeers) stars in this beloved live-action version of the classic fairy tale about finding true love in the unlikeliest of places - the haven of a monster! Featuring delightful musical numbers, lavish scenery and spellbinding magic, Beauty and the Beast reminds us that if you see with your heart, anything's possible!

"Beauty (De Mornay) is the family caretaker. While her sisters fret about gentleman callers, her only concern is for their father's wellbeing. So when he loses the family fortune and angers a beast (John Savage) that lives in a magnificent castle, Beauty dutifully agrees to become the beast's prisoner. But what she doesn't know is that his surprising kindness might also capture her heart."

The Cannon Movie Tale series of nine films has become nearly as popular among fairy tale enthusiasts and family film fans as Shelley Duvall's Faerie Tale Theatre. Some would argue that this series is even more popular. Either way, these musicals are suitable for the entire family and feature well-known actors from the 1980s.

"The entire Canon series was on the Disney channel in the 80's and I was in love with them! Beauty and the Beast is my favorite, with Sleeping Beauty a close second. While this version may not be as technologically advanced as the well known Disney animated Beauty and the Beast, this one is the closest to the original story. The music is enjoyable and has a lovely sing-along quality to it. I find that even now, as an adult, I love the movie just as much as I did when I was 10. If you watched it as a child, it will surely bring back wonderful memories, as it did for me. This series is excellent family programming and I would definately recommend it to anymore."
Now.... this movie....

"Has been a favorite of mine since I was just a wee toddler. I love this movie. Every time I watch it, why it just makes me want to break out into song. Wonderful movie for kids and adults of all ages. Hurrah. Go Beauty and the Beast. Apparently, everyone CAN find happiness. Yay."
Another classic brought to life by Cannon Movie Tales!

"A beautiful girl who devotes all her time to caring for her wealthy family is the only one not troubled when their fortune is lost. When her father picks a rose from the garden of a mysterious beast's castle while traveling home from an unsuccessful journey, she decides to take his place as the beast's captive. The beast provides for Beauty anything her heart desires, but he also asks her, every night at the dinner table, if she loves him and will be his wife.

Rebecca De Mornay stars as Beauty and John Savage as the beast in this wonderful film from the must-own Cannon Movie Tales series. If you love fairytales, this whole series of films is for you! These full-length, family features all have original songs and at least one recognizable star. The songs are often simple and forgettable, and the acting quality varies, but they are all highly entertaining nevertheless and made just right to be appreciated by all ages. I've never been smitten by Rebecca De Mornay, but I must say that in this early film of hers, she is rather breathtaking. John Savage is excellent as the beast, and the make-up effects, though a bit reminiscent of Teen Wolf at first, are rather good. These Cannon Movie Tales are not cheapy productions by any means. I own all that have been released so far, except for Rumpelstiltskin, which I have never seen in stores but is supposedly available here on Amazon. If you grew up watching these on the Disney Channel (back when it was the best channel on TV), you will definitely want these and will remember that there are two others that have not been released yet at all to DVD: Sleeping Beauty and The Frog Prince. Hey, MGM, what's the hold-up? Anyway, the others are: Puss in Boots (with Christopher Walken in a wonderful performance), Hansel and Gretel (one of the best ones), Snow White (also wonderful), Red Riding Hood (my personal favorite), and The Emperor's New Clothes (very funny). All are fullscreen, unfortunately, and each comes with its theatrical trailer. I also highly recommend the Disney animated features, especially "Beauty and the Beast"!
