Disney‘s classic animated retelling of the French fairy tale, with a new scene added for the forthcoming 3D re–release.
Once upon a time, there was a handsome but heartless prince, whose selfishness caused an enchantress to turn him into a hideous beast. He had only one hope for freedom: winning a woman‘s love despite his ugliness.
The years passed; the Beast remained alone.
Then one day, Maurice, a poor inventor, accidentally stumbled upon the Beast‘s lair. The angry Beast instantly swore to kill him –– until he saw Belle, Maurice‘s lovely daughter, who had come to to the palace to fight for her father‘s life.
The Beast promised not to harm Maurice on one condition: Belle must stay with him.
And so began Belle‘s lesson in the true meaning of beauty… a lesson that would bring her love and happiness ever after.
