In Rococo-era France, an enchantress disguised as a beggar woman arrives at a debutante ball and offers the host, a cold-hearted Prince, a rose in exchange for shelter. When he refuses, she transforms him into a hideous beast and his servants into household objects before erasing the castle’s existence from the memories of their loved ones. The enchantress then casts a spell on the rose, warning the Prince that, unless he learns to love another and earn their love in return before the last petal falls, he and his servants will lose their humanity forever.
Years later, in the nearby village of Villeneuve, a young woman named Belle lives with her father Maurice, an artist and tinkerer, dreams of living a life filled with adventure. While on a trip to the market to sell music boxes, Maurice and his horse Philippe lose their way in the forest and are attacked by wolves. They seek refuge at the Beast’s castle only for Maurice to be imprisoned as punishment for taking a rose from the garden. When Belle realizes he is missing after Philippe suddenly returns, she ventures out in search for him and finds him locked in the castle’s dungeon. She offers to take Maurice’s place, to which the Beast agrees.
Belle comes to befriend the castle’s servants, who treat her to a spectacular dinner. After dinner, she wanders into the forbidden West Wing and finds the rose. The Beast, enraged, frightens Belle into fleeing into the woods. However, he later rescues her from a pack of wolves but gets injured in the process. A friendship develops as Belle nurses his wounds, and the servants inform her that she may be the one who can break the curse. The Beast develops feelings for Belle and allows her access to his library. He shows Belle a gift the enchantress gave him, a book that could take people wherever they wanted. Belle uses it to bring the Beast and herself to an old windmill in Paris, where she used to live with her parents as an infant. Upon finding a plague doctor mask, Belle discovers that she and her father were forced to leave her mother’s deathbed as the latter succumbed to the plague.
Meanwhile, Maurice returns to Villeneuve but is unable to convince the others to rescue Belle. Gaston, a celebrated former soldier, agrees to help Maurice, but when he reveals that he only agreed to help Maurice in order to win his favor to give Belle to Gaston in marriage, Maurice refuses. In response, Gaston ties Maurice up in the forest and abandons him to be killed by wolves. Maurice is rescued by a hermit, Agathe, and accuses Gaston of his crime, but Gaston convinces the townsfolk to send Maurice to the local insane asylum.
After sharing a romantic evening dance with the Beast, Belle discovers her father’s predicament using the magic mirror. The Beast releases her to save Maurice, giving her the mirror to remember him with. At Villeneuve, Belle proves Maurice’s sanity by revealing the Beast in the mirror to the townsfolk. Realizing that Belle loves the Beast, Gaston has her thrown into the asylum carriage with her father and rallies the villagers to follow him to the castle to slay the Beast. Maurice and Belle escape from confinement and Belle rushes back to the castle.
During an ensuing battle, Gaston abandons his companion LeFou, who sides with the servants to fend off the villagers. Gaston attacks the Beast in his tower, who is initially too depressed to fight back, but regains his will upon seeing Belle return. He corners Gaston but spares his life before reuniting with Belle. However, Gaston fatally shoots the Beast in the back; shortly afterward, the stone bridge that Gaston is standing on collapses causing him to fall to his death. The Beast dies as the last rose petal falls and the castle’s servants become completely inanimate. Belle professes her love to him, then Agathe reveals herself to be the enchantress and undoes the curse, restoring the Beast’s life and human form. The servants’ human forms and the villagers’ memories are also restored, with several villagers recognizing some of the servants as their relatives. The Prince and Belle host a ball for the kingdom, where they dance happily.
