Story: Four animated classic fairytale adaptations from Disney Studios. In 'Beauty and the Beast' (1991) a prince is turned into a hideous beast by a magical spell and finds that the only way out of his predicament is to win the love of the beautiful Belle (voice of Paige O'Hara). Belle agrees to come and stay at his home in exchange for the freedom of her father, whom the Beast (Robby Benson) had previously captured. At first she is repulsed by his hideous features, but as time passes she learns to recognise his true inner beauty. In 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs' (1937) Snow White (Adriana Caselotti) is born pure and beautiful, so beautiful that her evil stepmother orders a huntsman to take her into the forest and kill her. However, the huntsman takes pity on the young beauty and sets her free. Alone and lost in the forest, she soon meets a group of kindly dwarfs, who provide her with friendship and a place to sleep. But the evil stepmother is still at large, planning to kill Snow White using the tried and tested method of a poisoned apple. In 'Cinderella' (1950) the beautiful Cinderella (Ilene Woods), enslaved by her stepmother and two ugly sisters, seems destined to miss the glittering party at which the Prince (William Phipps) will choose his bride. However, a magical makeover courtesy of her Fairy Godmother (Verna Felton) gets her to the ball on time and Cinders begins to cast her own spell on the Prince. In 'The Princess and the Frog' (2009), set in the French Quarter of the city of New Orleans, Prince Naveen (Bruno Campos), from the land of Maldonia, who has been transformed into a frog by the evil voodoo man Dr Facilier (Keith David), goes in search of a princess to break the spell. He finds a young African-American girl called Tiana (Anika Noni Rose) and, mistaking her for a princess, asks her for a restorative kiss. Things, however, don't go to plan when the kiss only succeeds in changing Tiana into a frog too. Together, the two unfortunate amphibians go in search of Mama Odie (Jenifer Lewis), the good voodoo priestess of the Bayou. As they make their way through the mystical bayous of Louisiana, they encounter new friends in the form of Louis (Michael-Leon Wooley), a trumpet-playing alligator, and Ray (Jim Cummings), a hopelessly romantic firefly. The film's music comes from the Oscar-winning Randy Newman.
