This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   The beast is shaped like a man but with the head of a wild boar. The beast has the head of a bison, the mane of a lion, the body of a bear and the tail of a wolf.
   Beauty insists upon going back to the palace and her sisters are happy that she will suffer for it was her virtue that made them envious. This does not happen in the movie.
   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.
   Beauty’s sisters come to visit with the husbands that they’re unhappily married to; they are jealous of Beauty’s fine clothes and upset when seeing how happy she is. The sisters plan to delay her return to the Beast for greater than a week so he will be enraged and eat her. This does not happen in the movie.
   The Beast confronts and threatens the father for stealing his roses. The father begs for mercy, mentioning his daughters. The Beast allows the father to return home provided he or one of his daughters return to be punished (by death). The father intends to return within three months to be punished. Beast sends the father away on his horse with a chest of gold. The Beasts discovers and imprisons Maurice. Phillipe the horse runs home.
