Beauty and the Beast is a classic fairy tale that has been around for several centuries. Since first been published in 1740, many retellings of this entrancing tale have surfaced and fascinated avid fiction readers since. But in 1991, Walt Disney brought life to this fairy tale by creating the beloved musical animated version of Beauty and the Beast that we’ve all come to know and love.
