Many withered before the intimidating prince, but in her innocence Belle appreciated his honest nature despite his looks. And after repeated attempts at professing his love, she finally acquiesced to his emotions. Young though they were, their feelings for each other were genuine. On the day of the ceremony, the prince's bashful face amused rather than terrified, and joyous laughter rang throughout the Animal Kingdom.
La Belle et la Bête (Beauty and the Beast) is a traditional fairy tale.
