Welcome back to Animation Monday. This week’s feature film is the Academy Award winning Beauty and the Beast. This film won for both Best Original Score and Best Song. In fact, Beauty and the Beast had three of the five nominations for Best Song. The title track Beauty and the Beast was nominated along with Be Our Guest and Belle.
Celine Dion almost did not sing the title track for Disney. She had recently been fired from the American Tail soundtrack and was hesitant to perform for another animated feature.
