A merchant who has fallen on hard times stumbles upon a castle and angers the Beast who lives within. He is duty-bound to return or send another in his place and, though she’s scared, brave Beauty vows to honour her father’s word and face the terrible monster. As the pair gradually overcome their differences and become friends, the malevolent witch Crackjaw plots and schemes to defeat all that is good and pure. Can Beauty and the Beast stop her evil plan, and prove that love really does conquer all?
