Beauty and the Beast is one of the greatest animated movies of all time (don't worry, Ariel, you're still #1 in my heart!). 2016 marks the 25th anniversary if its release, which Disney has celebrated by releasing a special edition on Blu-ray, DVD, and for the first time, digital! After you go grab it from Google Play and sing along, bring some of that magic to your home screen with these beautiful wallpapers!
The enchanted rose is one of the most iconic symbols in Disney, and the subject of no small number of works. While this one does have black bars at the top and bottom, it's too beautiful a work to deny (besides, that's why we can zoom in wallpapers). The glow off the bell jar, the petals scattering, the magic dripping down from above… makes a girl go weak at the knees.
"I want adventure in the great wide somewhere! I want it more than I can tell!"
If this line never called to you as a kid or an adult, then you can get out. Belle was a strong, intelligent, woman who stood up for herself and those important to her, but the trait I most loved in her was that desire to be more, to find more, to escape her comfortable little corner of the world for something more exciting. This bright wallpaper also has a lot of clear sky above our dreaming princess with plenty of space for icons.
Belle's dress has been beautifully portrayed in so many styles and lights, but this soft, fuzzy piece gives a beautiful simplicity and grace to it, and to the princess wearing it. The cobwebs playing over the frame and the soft lighting throughout the work make it a wallpaper that works exceedingly well.
Also, can I steal that dress? No? Fine….
The magic of the Beast's transformation is breathtaking, but it's merely a taste of the magic to come. See, the spell may have been broken by Belle admitting that she loved him, but the spell on the castle and the enchanted objects wasn't broken until Belle acknowledged and accepted her prince in his 'new' form. Kisses have broken spells many a time in Disney fantasies, but none are so literally magical as the one shared by Belle and Prince Adam.
Gaston is an amazing musical number for kids and adults alike, but it gains new levels of brilliance and bluster as an adult as you start to get the subversive tones of the song. Gaston is basically the manliest of men to ever grace a Disney film, and that gutsy glory is now on display at the Magic Kingdom, where Gaston has his own larger than life statue in the fountain outside his tavern. It's a beautiful fountain and a beautiful dark image by Disney Parks Blog, and as always, Pierrot le Fou is right by his side… or in this case, under his side.
