ANIMATED GIRL POWER
In August, SNFCC’s Great Lawn kids’ screenings celebrate Girl Power in Disney’s filmography! Walt Disney’s studios often gave the leading role to princesses up against anything – from magic spells to entire nations, teaching us a thing or two about girl power!
Program curated by Elias Frangoulis
Beauty and the Beast: Plot
A book-loving young French woman – whose father is an inventor that villagers see as insane and who is suited by an unscrupulous hunter – enters into an unexpected affair with a prince cursed to spend his days as a hideous monster who imprisons her in his castle. French novelist Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve’s wonderful fairy tale (made famous in the abridged version by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont) was adapted into one of the most popular animated films of all time, which made history as the first animated film to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture.
Directed by: Gary Trousdale, Kirk Wise
The film is dubbed in Greek
