Watch “Glen Keane on Beauty and the Beast transformation sequence” on YouTube


Here is a small clip by the original head designer for Beauty and the Beast (1991) on Beast’s transformation into a man. I also includef a clip of the raw animatipn for this scene. Glen Keane primarily hand drew this scene and really put his heart and soul into it. Those who know me, also know how much I love animation and how I especially love this animated scene. I have a special love for stories where people transform inside. What I love about this animated scene specifically is how we as an audience can really see his complete transformation come to life through art. Art is a powerful thing, which leaves impressions on us. It is because artists implant a part of themselves into their work. Really, a part of their souls. I hope you enjoy thees clips if you are interested!
