_,,,^..^,,,_ presents: Disney's Beauty and the Beast [spoRv]

[Image: batb_sporv_logo.png]

| PROJECTS: Released | In progress | Future | Mission & Setup |

Mission: to restore Disney's Beauty and the Beast, to recover its original color grading, and to add the laserdisc original soundtrack.
Video sources: analog video captured directly from Laserdisc, using one of the best laserdisc player ever produced, the Pioneer HLD-X9
Audio sources: uncompressed PCM captured directly from Laserdiscs; other soundtracks from BDs and DVDs.
Subtitles sources: subtitles for all languages.
Project info:
"Beauty and the Beast" was released in Blu-ray but, altough its quality is good, is different from the laserdisc; the color grading is not what it should be, and has massive contrast problems; the laserdisc soundtrack is closer to the original Dolby Surround soundtrack than the BD.

Thanks to Anneleis, I discovered that the German track has some missing words... so he was kind enough to provide me the DVD AC3 track; if there is any intererest, I could release a V1.1 including it.

I should mention that while the French LD has the original mix in french, it is the same dub as the BD.

Really? Oh my, it is not only memory that lacks... info are mixed together and I link one to the wrong other... I'M TOO OLD FOR THIS SHEET! Big Grin

By the way, the download link will expire in the next few days, so hurry up, folks!

That shouldn't matter, Andrea. I'm sure that some will want the original mix even if there is no change in the dub.

By the way, you're not the only one whose memory isn't what it used to be, as I was telling...

...well, somebody the other day.

The french dubbing is different since the theater re-release of 2002. For example the actors of the characters of Mrs. Potts (Mme Samovar) and Chip (Zip) have been replaced. Some sound effects is missing. The interpreters of the end song have been replaced too...
