On his way to the fair, Maurice stumbles upon a foreboding castle in the woods, and is thrown into a dungeon by the castle's occupant—a huge savage beast. Belle comes to rescue her ailing father, and offers to take his place as the Beast's prisoner.
Belle discovers that the castle's house staff has been transformed into objects by the same magic spell that made their master a beast. In order to break the spell, the Beast must learn to love another and be loved in return.
As she remains in the castle, Belle and Beast find their apprehension replaced by affection; but Belle misses her father, and the Beast reluctantly allows her to leave. Gaston, incensed at Belle's affection for the Beast, leads a mob of townspeople to storm the castle. Belle rushes back to confess her love for the Beast.
