CAPS is a digital scanning, ink, paint, and compositing system of software and hardware developed for Disney by Pixar.

6. The final dance scene reused animation from Sleeping Beauty.

If you watch the two side-by-side, the resemblance is undeniable.

7. The prince's name is never mentioned in the movie.

Film Review: ‘Beauty and the Beast’

  Film Review: ‘Beauty and the Beast’ You could say that the notion of turning beloved stories and characters into brands was invented by Walt Disney. He built his empire on the image of Mickey Mouse (who made his debut in 1928), but Disney really patented the brand concept in 1955, with the launch of Disneyland, where kids could see old familiar characters — Mickey! Snow White! — in a completely different context, which made them new. Twenty-three years ago, the Broadway version of “Beauty and the Beast” (followed three years later by the Broadway version of “The Lion King”) introduced a different form of re-branding: the stage-musical-based-on-an-animated-feature.

On this day (September 22) 25 years ago, Disney's " Beauty and the Beast " and its bookish heroine came into our lives. To celebrate Belle's influence, be our guest and put your knowledge of her to the test with these 13 little- known facts.

1. Walt Disney attempted to develop Beauty and the Beast into an animated film both in the 1930s and 1950s, but ultimately gave up because the writers found the story too difficult to adapt. 13 . The song "Be Our Guest" was originally supposed to be sung to Maurice instead of Belle.

8. Chip was almost a one-line character.

"The rest of the character was supposed to be done by a chiming music box that just played music as it related to the scene," Bradley Pierce, who voiced Chip, has said. "I like to think that it was partially my performance , but the other part of it was that they really didn't have a child's window into the story."
