Belle is sent to live with a reclusive beast, little knowing the secret of his entire household, who are all the victims of a terrible spell.

The seamless blend of traditional and CGI animation, especially in the classic ballroom, set a new benchmark in what animation could achieve. It also became the first full-length animated feature to be nominated for the best picture Oscar.
