This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   The father suddenly loses his entire fortune and has to re-locate to a small country house. The two older daughters thought they could be taken in by their lovers and stay in town, but were forsaken due to their poverty. This does not happen in the movie.
   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 says she will offer herself to be punished by the Beast. The brothers want to kill the beast or die trying, but their father says the beast is too powerful. The father refuses to allow Beauty to offer herself to the beast as he is old and not long to live. Beauty offers to stay at the palace over her father’s objections.
   During Beauty’s stay at the palace, her sisters have married and her brothers are in the army leaving her father all alone. This does not happen in the movie.
   The Fairy tells Beauty she will be a great queen; she hopes the throne will not lessen her virtue. The fairy says to Beauty’s sisters that they will turn to stone and stand before the palace gates to behold her happiness until they own their faults. The fairy thinks they will always remain statues. This does not happen in the movie.
