This Spoils the Ending
In the Book 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.
   Beauty begs Beast not to die and promises to be his wife. As soon as she speaks these words the palace sparkles with light and fireworks and music plays. Beast disappears and in his place is a lovely prince. As Beast lay dying Belle professes her love for him before the last petal falls from the rose. The spell is broken and the beast is restored to his true form as the prince. The castle servants also revert back to their true forms.
   The father went to check on his property that came in with the ship but found it was seized to pay his debts. The father travels to a fair to sell his new invention; a wood chopping machine.
   Beauty and the prince go to the great hall where they find her father and his whole family whom the fair lady in her dream had brought together. The fairy waves her wand transporting everyone into the palace where the prince and Beauty are married and live happily for many years. Belle dances with the prince as everyone watches happily.
