Beauty and the Beast

Belle lives in a French town where she cares for her father, Maurice, and tries to ignore her suitor, the vain Gaston.

Whilst lost in the woods one day, Maurice comes across an old castle. The castle is inhabited by enchanted objects - Mrs Pots the teapot, Chip the cup, Lumiere the candlestick and Cogsworth the clock - once servants in the castle they were transformed into household objects when a spell was cast. In order to break the spell, the Beast must learn to love another and be loved in return.

The loveable servants try to make Maurice welcome, but the Beast discovers him and throws him into the dungeon. Belle comes to the rescue of her father and agrees to remain in the castle if he is set free. She finds it difficult to deal with the Beast and his temper, but is cared for by Mrs Potts and her friends.

Belle finds herself falling in love with the Beast, but as she misses her father so much, he reluctantly allows her to leave. When Gaston realises he has a rival for Belle's affections he and the townfolk storm the castle to attack the Beast. Belle rushes back to the castle just in time to tell the Beast that she loves him and the spell is broken.

84 minutes long.

[More facts]


Gaston: I'd like to thank you all for coming to my wedding. But first I'd better go in there and propose to the girl.

Belle: Gaston, you are positively primeval.
Gaston: Why, thank you, Belle.

Beast: I want to do something for her... but what?
Cogsworth: Oh, there's the usual things; flowers, chocolates, promises you don't intend to keep...

Beast: You- You came back.
Belle: Of course I came back. I couldn't let them... Oh, this is all my fault. If only I'd gotten here sooner.
Beast: Maybe it's better... it's better this way.
Belle: Don't talk like that. You'll be all right. We're together now. Everything's going to be fine, you'll see.
Beast: At least... I got to see you... one last time.
