Where to watch Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration

It’s a tale as old as time … well, 31 years old, actually. In 1991, Walt Disney Pictures released the animated classic Beauty and the Beast, which reestablished Disney as an animated juggernaut and garnered critical acclaim, becoming the first toon to be nominated for a Best Picture Oscar.

Now, Disney is celebrating the film with a television reimagining/concert, Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration. The special has actors from the stage and screen, as well as musicians from a wide variety of genres. But where can you watch it?

Where can you watch Beauty and the Beast: A 30th Celebration?

If you want to see brand new interpretations of Belle, the Beast, Chip, and Mrs. Potts anytime you want, Disney+ is your streaming option.

Launched in November 2019, Disney+ has become a leading stalwart in the streaming service space. Boasting one of the best libraries of movies and TV shows around — including some of the best original series from the likes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Star Wars franchises — Disney+ has reached 129.8 million subscribers worldwide as of February 2022. That puts it toe-to-toe with the likes of Netflix, Apple TV+, Amazon Prime Video, HBO Max, and others.

Despite a library that isn’t quite as large as that of Netflix, Disney+ makes up for it in quality. It’s the exclusive streaming platform for a significant portion of Disney’s massive content archive and the only place to see new originals like Andor, Obi-wan Kenobi, The Mandalorian, Hawkeye, and WandaVision. Plus, with content from National Geographic and deals that can also net you Hulu and ESPN+ for one price, Disney+ is a formidable service.

After nearly two months of playoff hockey, only two teams remain. A champion will be crowned when the Florida Panthers take on the Las Vegas Golden Knights in the 2023 Stanley Cup Final. On Fanduel, the Knights are favored to win the series at -125.

The Panthers' run to the Stanley Cup Final has been magical. The eighth-seeded Panthers upset the greatest regular season team in history, the Boston Bruins, in round one. The Panthers then made quick work of the Toronto Maple Leafs and Carolina Hurricanes to reach their first cup final since 1996. For Vegas, the top-seeded Knights defeated the Winnipeg Jets, Edmonton Oilers, and Dallas Stars to reach their second Stanley Cup Final since 2018. One of these teams will win their first championship in franchise history.
