Beauty and the Beast

Long ago, a spoiled prince was turned into a monstrous Beast by an enchantress when she saw that there was no love in his heart. He would remain a Beast, hidden away in his enchanted castle in the darkest part of the forest, until he had learned to love and earn the love of another in return. To the Beast, this seemed like an impossible task and he had long ago given up all hope of ever being human again. The events of one stormy night bring to the Beast a strong, young woman known as Belle who has agreed to be his prisoner in exchange for him releasing her father. The Beast's enchanted servants are thrilled by Belle's arrival and pray that, at long last, she will be the one to break the spell...
