Beauty and the Beast – 15 Best Movie Adaptations
By Andrea Thompson
Some stories never get old, but in some cases we don’t mind because they’re just so charming. That is the case with “Beauty and the Beast.” Like any story that’s told over and over again, it has gone through some changes over the years often incorporating more modern values, but most of the core elements have remained the same. A young, beautiful woman takes her father’s place as the prisoner of a hideous Beast who falls in love with her. At first she is repulsed by his appearance, but slowly grows to care for him as she sees his kindness and goodness. Eventually, she falls in love with him too and her love breaks the spell that’s been placed on the Beast. He is transformed back into a handsome prince, they marry and presumably live happily ever after.
