New on DVD

Rated G. In theaters 1/13. Ok for kids 4+.. http://www.beautyandthebeast.com/

I’m not sure how I feel about classic family movies returning to theaters in 3D. The cynical side of me says they’re just trying to ring every last dollar out of the franchise. And 3D movies aren’t cheap, so you wonder if parents will fork over the cash at the theater instead of just plugging in the DVD at home. But the it’s-all-good side of me is happy that new generations can see wonderful films like Beauty and the Beast as they were intended -- on the big screen. We all know the story: Lovely Belle (voiced by Paige O’Hara) is unhappy with life in her small provincial French town and constantly fends off the misplaced affections of conceited Gaston (Richard White). When Belle’s father Maurice (Rex Everhart) is imprisoned by The Beast (Robby Benson), she offers herself instead and discovers her captor to be an enchanted prince. Directed by Gary Trousdale and Kirk Wise, this film also features the voices of Angela Lansbury, David Ogden Stiers, and Jerry Orbach.
