This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   When Beauty departs to the palace, her brothers are truly concerned, but her sisters rubbed their eyes with onion so that they would shed fake tears when she left. This does not happen in the movie.
   Beauty and her father returned to the palace where they found a table of food waiting for them. When the Beast roared, the father bid his daughter farewell. Beast asked if Beauty came willingly; she says yes. Beast then thanks the father for his honesty and tells him to leave in the morning, warning him never to return. Belle offers to stay at the palace over her father’s objections. She rides on Phillipe the horse back to the palace. Beast accepts her offer.
   While Beauty and her father slept in the palace, she dreams of a fair lady who tells her actions shall not go unrewarded. She tells her father of the dream, he then leaves. Maurice returns home and is unable to convince the other townsfolk to help rescue Belle from the Beast.
   Beauty believes that the Beast will eat her that night. However she wanders throughout the palace and finds a door that says “Beauty’s Apartment”. The apartment is furnished with a library and harpsichord. Beast sulks in his room when Belle refuses to eat with him. Belle is given a tour of the castle by Cogsworth and Lumiere and offered a meal.
   Beauty opens a book and reads that she is queen and mistress here, “speak your wishes, speak your will”, swift obedience meets them still”. This does not happen in the movie.
