Glen Keane and the Beast (and Beauty) Within

On animating the Beast for the film Beauty and the Beast, Disney animator Glen Keane says,
"This is the moment- this is what I was born for...

As I started animating it, for me it's really an expression of my spiritual life.

There's a verse in the Bible that says 'If any man is in Christ, he is a new creation. Old things have passed away and all things have become new...'
Because it is really about an inner spiritual transformation that's taking place with the Beast. I saw it as a parable of my life."
