Easter Eggs
Insert the second disc of the set in your player and from the Main Menu select 'Cogsworth and Lumiere' to enter their library. There, highlight the 'Main Menu' entry at the bottom of the page and then press the 'Up' arrow key on your remote control to highlight the chair by the fireplace. If you press 'Enter' now you will be taken to a series of screens with the production credits for this release.

The disc also contains a game that can be a bit challenging. Here, for your ease, we have the solution to the game to help you break the spell.

Go to the locked door that can be found under the 'Rose' menu entry in the main menu of the second disc. To unlock the door, press the Star, Moon and then the Cloud symbols. Then, to get through the table of candles, press left, right, left, right, left and right again. Next up is a menu where you can select two options. Select 'True beauty comes from within' to proceed.

In the next part of the game you will have to select the correct shadows to get on in the game. First select the second one from the left, then the fourth one, then the first and finally the third one to reveal the shadows. In the next game, avoid the balls by pressing left, up, left, up, left and up while you go up the stairs. The answer to the next question in the game is 'One with a heart of gold.'

In the next segment you have to select which picture from the three in question has been altered. It is the one featuring Belle and the Beast - her dress should be yellow. To get through the windy room, press up, down, up, right, left and right. If you have followed all steps correctly you have now rescued everyone in the castle and lifted the spell! Congratulations.
