musical sequence. Included in the new footage is Belle reading to the
Beast. She reads the concluding couplet of Romeo and Juliet and Beast
asks her to read it again. She begins to teach him to read by using
Shakespeare, with the Beast reading the opening prologue: "Tuh-woo
households" (a brilliantly ironic mispronunciation).
