  • Details
Belle, the Beast, Lumiere, Cogsworth and the rest of those zany castle residents use their imaginations to embark on three magical, storybook adventures. This direct-to-video anthology serves as a "sequel" to Disney's animated hit film. In "The Perfect World," Belle and the Beast learn about forgiveness. In "Fifi's Folly," Lumiere's girlfriend is jealous of his bond with Belle. And in "Broken Wing," the Beast learns to be kind to an injured bird.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this Disney direct-to-DVD spin-off of the classic Beauty and the Beast is a collection of four separate stories. Beast can be kind one moment and full of rage the next, but ultimately Belle's generous manner always persuades him to redeem himself. There are a few moments when Beast is mean that may frighten the youngest viewers, but for the most part the various shorts feature the castle's enchanted characters and are fine for older preschoolers. Each of the vignettes offers a different lesson about forgiveness, friendship, and love.

Sexual Content

Flirting between Lumiere and Fifi, who's jealous of the relationship between Lumiere and Belle. The entire "Fifi's Folly" segment is filled with romantic overtones and jealousy before the couple reconciles. Belle and Beast also have a romantic subtext to their relationship.


Beast loses his temper more than once and can be frightening, like when he pushes Webster off the table or when he growls or yells at Belle. Fifi and Lumiere almost take a dangerous fall before being rescued. Beast refuses to release a caged bird.

Social Behavior

Each of the segments provides a different positive message, from the importance of forgiveness to the reminder that a good friend should try to cheer up their close pals to the lesson that it's never wise to let jealousy control your feelings.
