The cook transformed into a teapot
Mrs Samovar (Mrs Potts in the original version) and Chip are characters from the Disney cartoon Beauty and the Beast”, adapted from the classic tale of the same name. It tells the story of a young and handsome prince who, one winter evening, was visited by an old woman asking him for shelter in exchange for a rose. The prince, disgusted by the old woman’s appearance, laughed and pushed her away. She then transformed into a beautiful creature and cast a terrible spell on him and the entire castle. He was turned into a hideous beast and all his servants into objects. Only if he could love a woman and be loved in return in that guise could the spell be broken. His cook Mrs. Samovar and his son Chip are thus transformed into a teapot and a cup respectively. When the sweet and intelligent Belle arrives at the castle, the servants see a chance for The Beast to find love and for them to finally return to human form.
