In both the 2010 and 2016 Blu-ray releases and most broadcast and streaming versions of the "theatrical version," the shot at the end of "Something There" is actually from the Special Edition (with the hallway background instead of Belle and the Beast in front of the fireplace). This creates a continuity error that was never there before in either the original version or the Special Edition, as Mrs. Potts and Cogsworth suddenly switch places on either side of Chip between shots.

Who can resist this beautiful story? I love the fact that even though Belle hated Beast at first, she saw underneath that he was a kind and gentle soul, and didn't care what he looked like on the outside! And what girl hasn't known a Gaston in their lives? I thought it was so great how he was put in his place! All the voiceovers are amazing, especially Robby Benson as Beast. Another Disney masterpiece.
