This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Beast tells her that she will be home in the morning. When she wants to come back to the palace, she only need to lay her ring on the table before she goes to bed. When Beauty woke up the next morning, she was in her father’s house. Beast gives Belle the mirror to remember him by; she leaves to find her father. When Gaston tries to have Maurice sent to the asylum, Belle proves her father is sane by showing everyone the Beast in the magic mirror.
   After greeting her father, the maid informs her that she found a large trunk of fine clothes and jewelry. Beauty selected a plain dress then decided to make a present of the others to her sisters. Upon saying these words the trunk disappeared. When father tells Beauty that the Beast insisted she keep them for herself, the trunk re-appears. 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 sisters weep when the week is up and convince Beauty to stay another week. On the tenth day Beauty dreamed she was in the palace garden watching Beast as he lay dying on the grass. She decides that she would be happier married to Beast than her sisters are married to their husbands. When Gaston sees that Belle loves the Beast, he leads the villagers to the castle to kill him. The palace servants fight the villagers. Beast fights Gaston on the castle roof and defeats him, then orders him to leave. When Beast turns his back, Gaston stabs him but then falls to his death.
   Beauty lays her ring on the table, went to sleep and woke up in the palace. She dressed in her finest gown and waited for Beast to arrive, but he did not appear. Beauty finds Beast on the ground and throws herself upon him. Beast had decided to starve himself to death after Beauty broke her promise. Belle rides to the castle on her father’s horse.
