The Three CommentEARS
Episode 13: Beauty and the Beast

Our season begins anew here at The Three CommentEARS. This month, we feature three commentaries for your listening pleasure, as we take a look at the 1991 Academy Award-nominated film Beauty and the Beast. But this is not just one look at the film, we've created commentary tracks for three versions of the film. Both the Theatrical and Extended versions of the film feature commentary from Albert Gutierrez, Pedro Hernandez, and Kelvin Cedeno. This track focuses primarily on analysis and the film's cultural impact, with production information peppered in at key points. In addition, Albert Gutierrez and Pedro Hernandez provide an additional commentary, meant to be played with the Work in Progress version of the film. This track takes a more expansive look at the production of the film, occasionally in comparison to other famous renditions of "Beauty and the Beast" lore.

Instructions on Syncing Up These Commentaries with Your Copy of the Film:

To maximize your enjoyment of each commentary, press "Play" on your copy of the film. Begin the commentary when you see "Walt Disney Pictures Presents" on the screen, as indicated by the image below. Then sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!
