It will be made into a film next year starring Emma Watson and the Disney adaptation has won millions of admirers across the globe.
But its spell could be broken after “fanatically politically correct” teachers decided it is full of sexist messages.

A teaching plan is telling pupils that Disney’s cartoon version of the classic fairytale promotes abusive relationships and suggests “it is the woman’s fault if her man abuses her”.
It recommends telling pupils as young as 11 that loyal heroine Belle is in an abusive relationship with the Beast in which “her only asset is her sexuality”.

The teaching plan suggest the fairytale promotes and abusive relationship
The Beast does not attack Belle but the threat of physical violence is present
The plan, now available in thousands of classrooms preaches: “The Beast does not attack Belle but the threat of physical violence is present.
“The movie says if a woman is pretty and sweet natured she can change an abusive man into a kind and gentle man.
“In other words, it is the woman’s fault if her man abuses her.
The plan also says Belle\'s \'only asset is her sexuality\' in her abusive relationship with the beast
“And of course, the beast turns into a handsome prince because ugly people cannot be happy.”
The lesson also attacks Disney favourites including The Little Mermaid, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Aladdin’s Princess Jasmine, and Snow White, whom it brands a domestic skivvy for the seven dwarfs.
