It is set 20 years after the marriage of Belle and Beast, then creating a new nation from surrounding kingdoms, while villains have been banished to an Island prison where magic is suspended. Their son would later make a proclamation freeing four selected children to have them live life outside the influence of their parents. However, the freed children are sent on a mission to steal the Fairy Godmother’s magic wand to help release the villains.
