Break the spell with these Beauty and the Beast wallpapers

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 (opens in new tab) and sing along, bring some of that magic to your home screen with these beautiful wallpapers!

Enchanting, isn't it?

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 much more than this provincial life!

"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.

I want this dress. And that castle.

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….

Beauty and the Beast: Romance is Magic

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.

No one's been like Gaston, a fountain like Gaston

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.

  • That is one awkward angle for that last picture haha. All I can say is 'poor LeFou' haha
  • Yes. Yes it is. That's part of why it's perfect.
  • Also, thanks for that info! I didn't know his name was Pierrot :)
  • Those first two are great. Love the color palettes.
  • Thank God you didn't add a link to Angela Lansbury singing the title song at 90 years old otherwise we might have a flood of tears in the comment section.
  • Eh, I figure sharing that on twitter was enough.
  • Then go to the "How to change your wallpaper" article to figure out how to set your new pictures as your wallpaper. You know, in case you're a moron and can't figure it out on your own.
