Beauty and the Beast is set in 18th century France. The storytelling begins with a ball holding by a young Prince in a vast castle set in the heart of France. One night, an unexpected intruder - an old hug arrives to the castle. In hope to seek shelter from a destructive thunderstorm, as a gift, she offers the Prince a single rose. But infuriated by the sudden disruption of the ball, selfish Prince mocks her and declines her proposal. Even after the warning of the old woman, he dismisses her again. Suddenly, a hag transforms into a beautiful enchantress and as punishment, she turns the Prince into an awful, frightening beast and his servants into household objects. The memory of a beautiful Prince and all his servants was erased from the minds of people they loved. With a powerful spell being placed over the castle and that enchanted rose, they are forgotten by the whole world. But if only the Prince could learn to love others and earn their love in return by the time the last petal fell, the spell would be broken. Otherwise, he will remain the beast for all time.

Years later, in a quiet French village, Belle, a bright and beautiful young woman, who is bored of her village life among other villagers who seems to be simple-minded and quite happy with their lives, and seeks something new, an adventure, for example. One day, her father and his horse leave for the market and Belle asks him to return home safe and to bring her a rose. Belle’s father gets lost in the forest and seeks shelter in the Beast’s castle when he notices that beautiful enchanted rose and is imprisoned by the Beast, being accused of stealing it. Very soon, Belle finds her father and offers to take his place despite her father’s objections. One day, a girl wanders into the forbidden place in the castle, where she finds that same rose. That’s when she is scared by the owner of this castle. She will soon find out who the Beast actually is…
