Inspiring Walt Disney: Beauty and the Beast Enchanted Castle Tote from The Met Museum


Pictured on our tote is an idyllic view of the enchanted castle in Walt Disney’s Beauty and the Beast (1991). This xerographic print and marker on cel was conceptualized by the film’s art director, Brian McEntee, and visual development artist Mac George. This item was created in celebration of Inspiring Walt Disney: The Animation of French Decorative Arts. Presented alongside the 30th anniversary of the animated theatrical release of Beauty and the Beast (1991), the exhibition examines Walt Disney’s personal fascination with European decorative arts and design, and draws new parallels between Walt Disney Animation Studios’ enchanting creations and their artistic models, including Gothic Revival architecture, medieval design, and Rococo-inspired objects.
