In the classic story, Beauty and the Beast, the objects and the Beast always seem to say that they have been there for a looooong time. Belle showed up at the end of who knows how long. How long was the kingdom and the beast under the spell from the enchantress before Belle arrived? That is my question.

  • Are you asking the specific date on which the Beast and his castle were enchanted? Or just how long they were enchanted?
