This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   She wishes to see her father and as soon as she speaks she sees a great looking glass with which she is able to see her home, her father and her sisters. She sees that her sisters try to appear sad but are happy that Beauty is gone. Beast gives Belle a magic mirror so that she can see her father.
   The Beast appears and tells Beauty that she is the mistress of the palace; he asks to dine with her. Beauty tells Beast that he is good natured, so that his deformity scarcely appears. Beauty ate her supper and nearly conquered her dread of the Beast, but nearly fainted when he asked her to marry him. She refuses; the Beast hisses frightfully then says farewell. Beast inadvertently chases Belle into the forest when he frightens her. She encounters a pack of wolves. Beast rescues her but is injured. He develops feelings for her as she tends to his injuries.
   Other the next three months Beauty was content; she dined with the Beast each evening. They talked rationally with common sense but without wit. Beauty eventually looked forward to Beast’s visits each evening. Each night before bed, Beast asks Beauty to marry him, she always refuses saying she wishes she could, but instead esteems him as a friend. Beast and Belle continue to bond while they are in the castle. Gaston pays Monsieur D’Arque to confine Maurice to the insane asylum if Belle refuses his next proposal.
   Beast asks Beauty to promise to stay with him forever. Beauty greatly desires to see her father again and tells Beast that she will fret to death if he denies her. Beast says he would rather die than make her uneasy. He says he will send her home and die with grief. Beauty says she loves Beast and will return to him in a week. After a romantic dance together, Belle says she misses her father. He lets her use a magic mirror to see him. Belle sees her father dying in the woods trying to reach the castle.
   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.
