Storyline

Belle prepares the castle for Christmas against Beast's wishes, trying to bring him happiness for the season. Forte, a pipe organ, fears that Belle's plans may eventually bring about an end to the curse... the curse that brought him more importance in the Master's life. Forte uses Fife, a flute who desperately wants a solo, to destroy Belle's plans and get rid of her. Written by R. John Berggren <jberg@nina.pagesz.net>

Trivia

At the beginning of the song "As Long as There's Christmas", the first bit of music and the way the snowflakes swirl through the room is similar to Pocahontas (1995)'s "Colors of the Wind" when the leaves twirl through her hair and the music is the same. See more »

Goofs

At the end of the movie as the prince is pulling out Chip's present, he's seen holding it with both hands for a split second. As he hands it down to Chip his left arm, having been under the gift in the first shot, had disappeared from view. See more »

Quotes

Belle: [singing] You belong side by side, you should never be apart, 'cause when you're both together, you're really twice as smart.
Cogsworth: [spoken] Twice as smart... she does have a point.
Lumiere: Yes. Well, two heads are better than one.

Alternate Versions

When the film was re-released on Blu-Ray and DVD in 2011, the following edits for the remastered version brought some small changes from previous releases of the film:
  • The film is matted to match widescreen formats, while the original release was held in a 1.33:1 aspect ratio.
  • The colors obviously, are slightly pale.
  • When Belle sings "It'll stay up until July..." in the original release, the camera is at a Dutch angle, where as in the later release, it is straight.
  • When Forte introduces himself to Belle ("I am Miestro Forte, court composer...") the sound appears to be slightly out of synchronization and there is a slight pause focusing on the steps before the camera pans up to Forte.
  • When Forte shouts "I THINK NOT!" there is a keyhole cutaway when the camera zooms out, in the earlier releases, there is none.
  • The Christmas angel on the tree at the end of the flashback is replaced by one resembling Angelique.
  • The end credits are golden yellow like the end credits of the first movie instead of chalk white like in the earlier releases.

A Good Christmas Visit
31 December 2003 | by travisimoSee all my reviews

For a direct-to-video special, this movie isn't really all that bad. The animation was crisp and clean enough that I wondered if the theatrical animation department worked on this. The CG animation of the villain, Forte, was pretty impressive, even though it kind of stood out like a sore thumb compared to the traditional animated surroundings.

All the voicework is back from the original movie, most notably Jerry Orbach as Lumiere and David Ogden Stiers as Cogsworth. New characters were well voiced by Tim Curry, Paul Reubens, and Bernadette Peters. One thing that is definitely lacking in this movie is the quality of the songs. Most of them are kind of corny, sappy, and disposable. Compare that with the original where all the songs were magnificent and memorable, and you'll realize that Howard Ashman was definitely missed.

As for the storyline, this movie provided a nice Christmas story. Recalling back when they were cursed, the characters detailed their struggle to bring Christmas back to the castle. I thought Forte was a very conniving and formidable villain. He added the conflict that made the story more interesting. It's not groundbreaking material, but it's sweet and nice enough around the holidays.

So, overall, this isn't Academy Award material like its predecessor, nor was it ever intended to be. It's a good Christmas story with your favorite B&B characters.

My IMDb Rating: 8/10. My Yahoo! Grade: B+ (Memorable)
