This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   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.
   Beauty asks what happened to Beast. The prince (Beast) says a wicked fairy had condemned him to remain a beast until a beautiful virgin should consent to marry him. The prince was rude to an enchantress in his youth, he was not the victim.
   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.
   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.
