Beauty and the Beast is a 1991 American animated feature produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation. It premiered at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood on November 13, 1991 and is the thirtieth film in the Walt Disney Animated Classic series. The film is based on the fairy tale of the same name about a beautiful woman kept in a castle by a horrific monster. It is the only full-length animated feature film to ever be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture. Heightening the level of performance in the era known as the Disney Renaissance (1989–1999, beginning with The Little Mermaid and ending with Tarzan), many animated films following its release have been influenced by its blending of traditional animation and computer generated imagery.

Tale as old as time, True as it can be
Barely even friends, Then somebody bends

Just a little change, Small to say the least
Both a little scared, Neither one prepared
Beauty and the Beast

Ever just the same, Ever a surprise
Ever as before, Ever just as sure
As the sun will rise
Tale as old as time, Tune as old as song
Bittersweet and strange, Finding you can change
Learning you were wrong

Certain as the sun, Rising in the east
Tale as old as time, Song as old as rhyme
Beauty and the beast
Tale as old as time,Song as old as rhyme
Beauty and the beast, Beauty and the beast

Beauty and the Beast ranked at #7 on the American Film Institute's list of best animated films, #22 on the Institutes's list of best musicals, and #34 on its list of the best romantic American movies. On the list of the greatest songs from American movies, Beauty and the Beast ranked #62. The film was adapted into a Broadway musical of the same name, which ran from 1994 to 2007. The original score and songs were composed by Alan Menken with lyrics written by Howard Ashman. The album won the Academy Award for Best Original Score, the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score and the Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Composition Written for a Motion Picture or for Television.
