Beauty and the Beast VHS "Special Work-In-Progress Edition". This video was not mass produced. It was EXCLUSIVELY FOR ACADEMY MEMBERS.It has been stored in my safe for over 29 years. Much of this film is in story board format showing the different stages of animation. A video like this will likely never surface again. Was previewed at the New York Film Festival in September 1991 in a Work-In-Progress format. Approximately 70% of the footage was the final color animation.
The other 30% consisted of storyboard reels, rough animation pencil tests, clean-up (final line) animation pencil tests, and computer animation tests of the ballroom sequence. This marked the first time that Disney had done a large-scale preview of an unfinished film. In an unprecedented move, the usually secretive Disney animation department allowed the public to see an unfinished version of a film. They entered Beauty and the Beast as a work in progress at the New York Film Festival.
It was a risky move, as large stretches of the film consisted of the audio track set to pencil sketches against plain white background. When the screening ended, the usually stoic New York film crowd burst into a sustained ten minute standing ovation.
