This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   The fairies cast a spell on the Prince. It is actually a beautiful enchantress who curses the Beast and she also places a spell on the castle and all who live there.
   There is no villain Gaston is the villain
   Beauty pretty much stays home and tends to the house Belle loves to read books
   There are no enchanted object servants the Prince has servants in the castle and they are all placed under the same spell and are instantly turned into household objects
   The rose is only in the beginning of the story when Maurice picks it from the Beast's garden the rose is enchanted and it's a very important part of the story as it blooms for many years as an hourglass for the Beast
