The 30th Disney animated feature film and the third released during the Disney Renaissance period, it is based on the French fairy tale of the same name by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont who was only credited in the French dub ,  and ideas from the French film of the same name directed by Jean Cocteau. To break the curse, Beast must learn to love Belle and earn her love in return before the last petal falls from an enchanted rose or else the Beast will remain a monster forever. Walt Disney first attempted to adapt Beauty and the Beast into an animated film during the s and s, but was unsuccessful. Following the success of The Little Mermaid , Walt Disney Pictures decided to adapt the fairy tale, which Richard Purdum originally conceived as a non-musical. Disney chairman Jeffrey Katzenberg eventually dismissed Purdum's idea and ordered that the film be a musical similar to The Little Mermaid instead. The film was directed by Gary Trousdale and Kirk Wise in their directorial debut , with a screenplay by Linda Woolverton story first credited to Roger Allers.
