A selfish prince is cursed to become a monster for the rest of his life, unless he learns to fall in love with a beautiful young woman he keeps prisoner.
Kirk Wise and Gary Trousdale, the directors of Beauty and the Beast (1991), were brought on this film as creative consultants.
Once upon a time, in the hidden heart of France, a handsome young prince lived in a beautiful castle. Although he had everything his heart desired, the prince was selfish and unkind.
Cogsworth: Master, it's time.
Agathe: He taxed the village to fill his castle with ...
During a castle fight scene, Madame Garderobe says 'the fat lady is singing', referring to the saying 'it's not over until the fat lady sings'. But the earliest recording of this is in the late 1800's - BATB is set in the 1740's.
Part of the closing credits is a "curtain call" sequence that features the cast (appearing in poses) and crew (their credit with an image relating to their respective job). The sequence is framed with shots of the Beast's castle at sunset, and ends with a zoom shot of the Beast and the enchanted objects posing at the castle's entrance.
There also was a Sing-A-Long version released to theaters (2D only). This version is also included on the Blu-ray.
