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.

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.

At the beginning of the song 'Belle' one of the villagers is locked up by two police officers. The police force did not exist until the first half of the 19th century.
The Walt Disney Pictures logo features the Prince's castle (with Villeneuve village in the background) in the evening before his masquerade party starts. A rosebush appears near the castle and the Enchantress picks a rose from it, leading into the opening.
There also was a Sing-A-Long version released to theaters (2D only). This version is also included on the Blu-ray.
