The castle, now that the spell has been broken, is looking forward to a very Merry Christmas indeed, but while they are preparing, the gang remembers the last Christmas when things were not so happy. The Beast has banned Christmas and an evil spirit in the organ, Forte (Tim Curry) has convinced the Beast to destroy Belle’s plan to defy him and bring Christmas into the castle. But Belle has other plans and isn’t about to be defeated in her quest for a lovely Christmas after all, outside in the snow.

This “mid-quel” takes place in the middle of the original story while Belle is still a prisoner. It has all the charm and beauty of the original film, and is a fine direct to video addition to the story. The characters are all familiar to us now, so it’s easy to get into the story. Forte is a fitting bad guy, and there is a lot of cleverness to the twists and turns in the story. If the kids are a fan of the original Beauty and the Beast, make sure they get a chance to catch this fitting sequel. It’s being played both on the Disney Channel and on ABC Family for the holidays, and is very worth seeking. Many of the direct to video sequels have been a bit on the inferior side, but this one is very well done.
