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 song "Stories" Belle's book is stitched together and we see her holding it in her hands. Viewing it from the back, the binding is in her right hand; unless it's upside down (which it's not, because we can read the writing on the back cover) the spine of the book should be in her left hand.

Quotes

Forte: [after the flashback to the Beast's transformation] But we've come so far since then. We've - risen above the tragedy.
Beast: [growling, he knocks his chair over, wondering where Belle is] Where is sheeee?
Forte: I believe she's gone to the boiler room, or - so a little birdie told me.
Fife: [chuckles nervously] Tweet, tweet, tweet!

Excellent to see the original transformation!
5 June 1999 | by (Helsinki, Finland) – See all my reviews

When I first heard that a sequel to BATB was to come, I was surprised: how is it possible that the Prince is the Beast again? But when I saw the film, I found it quite good - it was nice to see something new happening in the castle. And I liked the "nature of a beast" which the enchanted Prince seemed to have more than in the original story. I must confess that Forte was really frightening! And the best in the whole movie was the coming of the Enchantress and the transformation of the Prince into the Beast. Yes, I really liked the film very much.
