On December 16, 2002, Librarian of Congress James H. Billington announced that Beauty and The Beast was one of 25 "culturally, historically or aesthetically" significant motion pictures that he selected to be added to the National Film Registry.
A sequence containing the song "Human Again," written by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman for the original movie, was initially cut. It debuted in the Broadway version of the film to great success. This encouraged the filmmakers to restore the sequence to the movie.
Beauty and the Beast set an all-time record for video sales, according to The Guinness Book of Records. However, this was soon eclipsed by such other Disney animated features as "Aladdin."
This was the first animated film to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture.
The first Academy Award nomination for producer Don Hahn.
