Making fun of the old woman, the prince rejects her rose and makes her leave the castle, without knowing the old woman was actually a witch. The witch changed her aspect to her original form that was a beautiful good looking woman and cursed the prince with his servants and castle.
The prince was turned into a beast, the servants into objects, and the castle remained in eternal winter. If the prince didn’t find the true love before all the leaves of the rose fell, he will remain the same for the eternity.
“The true beauty is in the interior, not the exterior”, that were the words of the witch. When the prince tried to reverse the things, it was too late.
Bella which is the beauty is the most beautiful and smarter girl in the nearest town and the crush of the most desirable man of the town which is the hunter, Gaston. Despite all the efforts of Gaston to conquer her, Bella never liked him.
