Over 30 years, Disney’s Oscar-winning animated movieBeauty and the Beast has entertained fans all over the world. On December 15, 2022, ABC and Walt Disney Studios brought the beloved classic into life for DisneysBeauty and the Beast: The 30th Celebration.
In my memory, the tale of Beauty and Beast has always been in your interest. From saverness and unapologetically speaking, saverness, and the enchanting Beast, who must explore the heart wrenching journey of learning what love means. I would sit in front of my parents television, dressed in one of my ballet outfits, and recreate Belles every moment and read and read every line. This feeling of Disney magic is what most Disney fans like to watch their favorite Disney movie for the first time. When I discovered they were in an event for the 30th anniversary of the event, I was beyond excited and high expectations were fulfilled. They did not disappoint. From the beginning to the end, I felt the same Disney magic I felt many years ago. It was more than a performance. It was a life-changing experience.
The magic celebration was an award-winning film by the film-winning star on the two-hour show starring H.E.R. and the Beast. The show featured never-before-seen performances. At the same time, scenes of animation reverberating to live-action stage performances were cast by Rita Moreno, who narrates behind-the-scenes a film with the history and the blitz of Walt Disney. The story was composed by a composer, and the production was pronounced. From an idea that took 50 years to become a home on a wideway and a live-action film in 2017, the History of the Beast and the Beauty is quite a tale of time.
ABC and Walt Disney Studios have done with it.
When you become a lifelong Disney fan, then you may feel and experience the passion and dedication that made this fairytale life happy. From the darkest coffee to the towering beast, each performer put his soul and soul into this story. Given the quality of my condition I felt guilty to not having to buy a movie ticket. With the attention to detail that drew each costume, the changing set pieces and the craftsmanship, we felt like stepping into the book pages and leaving film magic to the stage. The demand for excellence is rising because the cast is over the top of all expectations. The show’s performance was impressive with the flawless execution of every dancer and the exceptional stunts produced by Be Our Guest.

But it’s obvious. His portrayal of our beloved protagonist Belle was magnetic. The award winning artist lived and breathed into who Belle was. She had a graceful and energetic stage presence. She hit every note flawlessly. What good love stories are, not if the chemistry is there. H.R. and Groban made that connection across the world. They performed Something There were some of the most amazing moments for me. It was in the small details that she looked at her hand or looked at him with warm doe-eyes. Or how The Beast would turn his head somewhat. Or the quaking in his voice when he thought she caught him staring. They had the opportunity to make a new bond with their girlfriend.

It’s so rare to watch television shows, films or stage productions and think that this person is in this role. This wasn’t true here. There were many notable performances that included Martin Short as Lumiere and Rizwan Manji as LeFou. However, the most successful one of the performances was Joshua Henry as Gaston. In an irony and egotistic view, Henry’s effortlessly sound performance changed the story of the star. At every time Henry got in the stage, he was animated and high-spirited, and I forgot I wasn’t watching a live musical.
The celebration was more than just about a movie, it was about a legacy. Legacies are adapting and inspire a new generation of fans. To commemorate the legacy of Beast and Beauty, Groban made sure to perform the Evermore and the Beast movie in 2017 – a live-action adaptation that he performed for the soundtrack. The critically acclaimed, award-winning artist gave a hauntingly beautiful performance that in some way was a love letter to Disney’s beloved characters.
ABC and Walt Disney Studios are both in the air.
Continuing with the tradition of performing the films title track, Beauty and Beast, Shania Twain, who played Mrs. Potts, took the stage for her rendition of the classic hit. For many, it was a bittersweet moment, when the Disney community lost the legend and the Angela Lansbury family in October. Lansbury played Mrs. Potts in the animated film and then sang the track for the iconic ballroom scene. After the memorable performance of Twains, the lights were dripping as they honored the late actress.

Finally, for a flawless finish, Groban and H.E.R. took back to the stage for their grand finale performance of Beauty and the Beast, with H.E.R. posing with a yellow ball gown and Groban in The Beasts’ royal blue jacket. But this would not be a grand finale without a twist. In the centre of the show, H.E.R. disappeared and returned from a quick costume change to show her iconic sunglasses and putting a modern twist on the classic melody.
The 30-th Celebration allowed them to feel like they fell in love with the story again and inspire new generation of Disney fans.
