Storyline

Belle prepares the castle for Christmas against Beast's wishes, trying to bring him happiness for the season. Forte, a pipe organ, fears that Belle's plans may eventually bring about an end to the curse... the curse that brought him more importance in the Master's life. Forte uses Fife, a flute who desperately wants a solo, to destroy Belle's plans and get rid of her. Written by R. John Berggren <jberg@nina.pagesz.net>

Trivia

In the early stages of production, the film was planned to be a direct-to-video sequel to the original film, taking place after the events of the first film and featuring Gaston's vengeful younger brother, Avenant, as the villain. Interestingly, Avenant was the villain in the 1946 French film, and the inspiration of the Gaston character, but did not appear in any way in the 1991 film. As the film would no longer be "Beauty and the Beast", however, the filmmakers felt it would lack the magic of the original, and decided to change the story entirely, making it into a midquel. Avenant's goal (to ruin the lives of Belle and the Prince), however, was used in the final scenes of the movie for the film's antagonist, Forte the Pipe Organ (who decided to kill them both to stop the spell breaking).

Goofs

During the course of the movie, the character, Fife clearly has 4 keys/arms, but at the very end of the film, he is seen to clearly to have 6 keys/arms. See more »

Quotes

Fife: Maestro! Stop! Just what do you think you're doing?
Forte: Don't you see, Fife? They can't fall in love if they're DEAD!
Fife: [furiously] I'll tell you what I see: a big old windbag!
[Fife laughs nervously]
Forte: [plays loud music] You could've joined me, Fife! But I see my triumph is a solo act!
[Forte laughs evilly as Fife notices a single blank music sheet]
Fife: My solo - it's blank!
Forte: So naive. You're second fiddle, Fife, and that's all you'll ever be!
[plays loud music again]

I am disheartened to see IMDb users thinking this pile of excrement is actually good. Where do I begin? First of all, this midquel doesn't fit at all into the time line of the original. Are we supposed to assume all of this happened while Maurice was searching for Belle in the snow? Does it take place before or after "Something There," or somewhere in the middle of it? Secondly, the writers have butchered the leads. Belle isn't headstrong and self-reliant here as she is in the original. She's relentlessly chipper, almost as if she's been replaced by Snow White. As for the Beast, in the original movie, he starts out gruff and angry, but he begins making an effort to change midway through the movie. We see him struggle to eat with a spoon, feed cute little birds, and play in the snow with Belle. We get none of that here. He is simply mean-spirited and cranky, so there's nothing to endear us to him. Consequently, there is no reason for us to root for him and Belle to fall in love. The music is awful, especially "Don't Fall in Love." The animation is similarly horrible, nowhere near the excellence of the first film. All in all, this is a clumsy excuse for a midquel that doesn't deserve any respect or attention.
