This direct-to-video sequel to Beauty and the Beast was released on November 11, 1997. It then got a DVD release on October 13, 1998, two weeks before The Lion King II: Simba's Pride came out on VHS.


All the enchantment of Disney's Academy Award winning film Beauty And The Beast, continues as this classic adventure casts its song-filled spell. This magical tale reveals a Christmas past when Belle vows to warm the Beast's castle with the spirit and hope of the season - despite the Beast's misgivings about Christmas. She asks all the Enchanted Objects to chip in, including reluctant Angelique -- a beautiful tree ornament who was once the castle decorator. But Belle, Cogsworth, Lumiere and a host of new, enchanting friends must first undo the plans of Forte -- an evil, plotting pipe organ -- who gets wind of their plan. He will pull out all the stops to keep the Beast away from Belle's special gift of hope.
