This "Tale as Old as Time" focuses on the relationship between the Beast, a young prince trapped under a hideous spell, and a beautiful young woman whom he imprisons in his castle. To become a prince again, the Beast must find a way to love and be loved. But time is running out. If lessons are not learned quickly, the Beast and his household will be doomed for all eternity.
