The power of love offers a hideous beast a second shot at humanity in this enchanting animated version of the timeless fairy tale. Beauty's father has plucked a single rose from the castle of the fearsome beast, a crime punishable by death in the eyes of the vengeful creature. In an act of unwavering devotion, Beauty offers to exchange her freedom for the life of her father and live out the rest of her days in The Beast's awe-inspiring castle. In time, Beauty learns to look past The Beast's horrific fa├žade and deep into his soul, where kindness, love, and generosity continue to flourish. Only a love as pure as that of the Beauty can truly reverse the curse that plagues The Beast, and as he slowly learns to love again, the forgotten good buried deep within The Beast soon begins to shine through once again.
