Beauty and the Beast "midquel" set during Belle's original stay at the Beast's castle and composed of three short stories (four in the DVD release) that suitably teach both kids and adults to forgive, love, and be kind to one another.
Jaq and Gus create a storybook based on three events that happened after the first film. The stories include Cinderella's opposition to the court's strict etiquette, Jaq's becoming human for a day, and Anastasia's redemption through love.
The kingdom of Atlantica where music is forbidden, the youngest daughter of King Triton, named Ariel, discovers her love to an underground music club and sets off to a daring adventure to bring restoration of music back to Atlantica.
Samuel E. Wright,
Belle's Magical World comes to life in three (four in the DVD release) charming fantasy adventures presented like chapters in a storybook. In The Perfect Word, the servants' clumsy attempt to mend a silly misunderstanding between Belle and the Beast leads to a lesson in forgiveness. Then, in Fifi's Folly, a romantic evening for Lumiere and Fifi snowballs into a thrilling plunge down the mountain in a runaway sleigh. In Mrs. Potts' Party, the only episode absent from the original release but added for the DVD release, bad weather makes Mrs. Potts feel under the weather so Belle and her friends plan a surprise party for her, but petty infighting puts their noble attempt to make their friend feel better in jeopardy. In Broken Wing, Belle urges the Beast to free a tiny songbird as an act of kindness. The film is enriched with gentle lessons, and short original songs seamlessly fold one tale into the next.Written by

This is an midquel of the only animated movie nominated for best picture?
When I started reviewing on IMDb, I began to watch all the Disney direct to video sequels. It was almost torture for me to watch all of them (I have seen 6 of them at the moment I wrote this review), but this one I only could watch 10 minutes of it before I turned of the PC and have to watch the first Beauty and the Beast to remind me that it was one of my favorite Disney films.
THIS THING IS A DISCRASE TO THE ORIGINAL ONE!!! The story is the bland, predictable plots of 3 failed episodes from a failed attempt of a TV- series (that is exactly what this is, and they ask $19.48 for it at eBay!!!!), the animation is just cheap and awful, the characters are nothing from what they were in the original (especially the beast), and the songs make Howard Ashman roll in his grave.
This is one of the WORST Disney DTV sequel I have ever seen (the worst one being Hunchback of Notre Dame II). Skip this movie, PLEASE!!!!!
