Fact of the Day: Prince Beast

While the most famous version of Beauty and the Beast isn't drastically different from the Disney versions, in the original story by Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve there are differences. Instead of The Prince being turned into a beast for being a terrible host/person, he was turned into a monster after an evil fairy tried to seduce him and was rejected.

I didn't know about that fact at all, Adam. I love how you dig these things up for us.

I didn't know this was the original version! I think I like it even more than the Prince being mean.
