On his way home, the old man gets lost in the forest and finds a magnificent castle where he spends the night.

Trivia

The characters of Clara, the beast's servant, the mysterious fairy did not feature in the original story. Instead, the beast in his human form as a handsome prince appeared in Beauty's dreams instead of the wicked fairy, telling her to see past ugliness instead of warning her about the cruel heart of the beast.

Goofs

In the last scene, when the prince smiles at seeing Beauty's dress magically change, his eyebrows alter from black to blonde between frames. See more »

Quotes

Old Gentleman: Oh, please, my dear lord, eh...
Beast: Don't call me "lord"! I am a beast.
[roars loudly]
Beast: And don't argue, you'll pay for this with your life!
Old Gentleman: Eh, see, I took the rose only as a gift for my daughter, eh, Beauty.
Beast: A daughter you say? And named Beauty?
Old Gentleman: Eh, yes my lord. Ooh, I mean, beast, not lord. See, see, I'm a failed and broken man, all she asked of me was this little rose.

Cute and sweet,, despite being cheaply made
21 August 2008 | by elfmaiden65See all my reviews

I admit, I am a sucker for just about anything animated, especially if it happens to be based on a fairy tale. This movie, for all its technical failings has a charm unto itself. Sure its a simple and childish interpretation, but that is what its supposed to be. I honestly really liked the addition of the character Clara. She was really a kick. I know this was made for small children, but I thought that the design for the beast was more goofy than scary. They could have tried a little harder on that. Another thing that bothers me about a good chunk of the movies released by Good Times ent. is the soundtrack. It's distracting to have familiar classical music constantly playing in the background. This is one of the better Good Times films, and worth a watch for your little ones (or if you're an animation junkie like with an appreciation for the lower budgeted productions).
