Overview

She found love in the most unlikely of places, and now the beautiful Princess Belle will learn the value of friendship as she and the castle's enchanted inhabitants form a special bond in the second sequel to the Disney classic Beauty and the Beast. The Beast's castle has always been a cold and dark place, but a little love can go a long way, and when Belle makes friends with Lumiere, Cogsworth, Chip, and Mrs. Potts, the warmth of their friendship transforms a foreboding castle into an enchanted palace.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
The voice cast from the original film (minus Angela Lansbury's Mrs. Potts) provides much of the magic in this produced-for-video addition to the Beauty and the Beast library. Like Cinderella II: Happily Ever After, this is not so much a sequel as an omnibus of tales, each delivering a heavy-handed moral every bit as subtle as the Beast's roar. In the first story, forgiveness is "The Perfect Word" when a misunderstanding between warmhearted Belle (Paige O'Hara) and the still prickly Beast (Robby Benson) escalates. Another misunderstanding threatens to douse the romance between feather duster Fifi and candelabra Lumiere (Jerry Orbach) in "Fifi's Folly." The castle staff's bickering threatens to sabotage plans to cheer up a gloomy Mrs. Potts in "Mrs. Potts's Party." In "Broken Wing," the Beast cages an injured bird and demands that she sing. It's all about "listening with our hearts" and treating each other with "trust and mutual respect," yadda-yadda-yadda. This plays like the pilot for a Beauty and the Beast TV series, but undiscriminating younger viewers will be enchanted.
