Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" was first released in 1991, but it's still as fresh and appealing today as it was 21 years ago, which a new generation of moviegoers will find out with the film's 3-D re-release this week.
What's responsible for the studio's lasting success? In part, it's the marketing. Disney movies have an unmistakable look and charm that gives us the warm and fuzzies. (You know your studio's in good shape when a film that grossed over $100 million was considered a failure, as was the case with Disney's 2009 release, "The Princess and the Frog.")
What would the Disney magic do if applied to other films? We imagine what 10 other big movie franchises would like if they were created by the Mouse House.
