Beauty and the Beast "midquel" set during Belle's original stay at the Beast's castle and composed of three short stories (four in the DVD release) that suitably teach both kids and adults to forgive, love, and be kind to one another.
Belle's Magical World comes to life in three (four in the DVD release) charming fantasy adventures presented like chapters in a storybook. In The Perfect Word, the servants' clumsy attempt to mend a silly misunderstanding between Belle and the Beast leads to a lesson in forgiveness. Then, in Fifi's Folly, a romantic evening for Lumiere and Fifi snowballs into a thrilling plunge down the mountain in a runaway sleigh. In Mrs. Potts' Party, the only episode absent from the original release but added for the DVD release, bad weather makes Mrs. Potts feel under the weather so Belle and her friends plan a surprise party for her, but petty infighting puts their noble attempt to make their friend feel better in jeopardy. In Broken Wing, Belle urges the Beast to free a tiny songbird as an act of kindness. The film is enriched with gentle lessons, and short original songs seamlessly fold one tale into the next.Written by

If it is not fit for television, it is not fit for anything!
It was just such a painful experience to watch the most real and believable characters from one of the greatest animated movies ever created being torn apart with every word they uttered.
There is simply no magic at all in this shameless effort to cash in on the first animated movie nominated for an Oscar for best picture. The animation is cheap and the dialogue is stupid.
They should have called it "Belle and Beast's Endless Arguments", because there is no other way to describe it! Beast does something mean, Belle talks him out of it, that's it. It is so stupid!
The first follow-up, The Enchanted Christmas, was at least passable with a good Tim Curry performance, but now with this stupid script and also the absence of Angela Lansbury, this poor excuse for a "movie" should have never existed.
