Beauty And The Beast: 20 Fiendishly Clever Easter Eggs You Probably Missed

19. Reading The Signs

Beauty And The Beast Easter Eggs

Right at the start of the film, before Maurice unwittingly winds his way to Beast's front door, he comes across what must be the most unhelpful signpost in Hollywood history (just beating out the Jurassic Park dock sign). It's weather-beaten, tattered and barely legible, and it's no real shock he gets lost.

But for fans with eagle-eyes, and a Blu-ray player (and probably Photoshop), the signs are actually revealing. All four signs - which read Ramona, Saugus, Newhall, Valencia and Anaheim in order - point to towns in Southern California, which were home to most of the Walt Disney Feature Animation team.

Anaheim of course is also where Disneyland is.
