BEAUTY AND THE BEAST: THE ENCHANTED CHRISTMAS (1997)

We absolutely love Beauty and the Beast so we were ready to watch this Christmas themed sequel even if it was a straight to video. We were so wrong. So very very wrong. This movie was the worst. THE WORST! When rating this movie we seriously had a hard time with the fact that we were giving a Beauty and the Beast movie a 1, but there was no way around it. We had to do it. It was that awful. The story was stupid, the songs were not good and nothing made sense. This story takes place sometime in the middle of the original. Belle is still a prisoner of the Beasts and they are about to have their first Christmas together. The villain of the movie is an organ. Yep, you read that right. An organ that must keep the Beast depressed and hating Christmas so he will want to listen to the organ’s classical music. Belle is ruining everything by wanting to fill the castle with Christmas cheer. But it is just one of those things where you have to be careful introducing a story that takes place during an already told story because we’re going to get mad if it doesn’t make sense or tries to change the original in any way. And this one just doesn’t make sense. Where was this organ in the original? Why didn’t we ever hear about him? Ok well, I guess we didn’t let’s move past it. Wait…is she wearing her yellow dress at the Christmas party??? No! she can’t have her yellow ball gown at the party! She for sure wore that for the first time when she and Beast finally have their first date and then she leaves the castle to save her father. There was no time for Christmas in between! Anyway, this movie was so bad that even the fact that it was filled with characters we love, it still couldn’t save it in any way. Do yourself a favor and never pollute your eyes with this mess.
