It is undeniable that “Beauty and the Beast” is one of the most classic Disney films of all time. Based on a French story from the 18th century, this beloved ‘tale as old as time’ is a beautiful memory for many people.
I, like many others, remember watching the animated version of the film over and over again. When I rewatch it as an adult, I notice some details that may have escaped my notice when I was six. For example, Belle’s name means “beautiful” in French. Despite the fact that I’ve re-watched the film several times in recent years, I still have a few questions about it.
If you are a big fan of Belle and the Beast, please tell me the answers. And if you also have doubts regarding the movie, write them down in the comment and we will discuss.
#1 First of all, how is it that the prince opens always the door himself?
#2 Did the fairy really need to throw a curse on the Beast and everyone else in the castle? Isn’t that a little excessive?
#3 The narrator says the castle sort of falls dormant for years. So I wonder this prince didn’t have a family.
#4 If the film is set in French, why is Lumière the only character with a French accent?
#5 In the village, Belle is the only person who reads books and that’s why everyone considers her “the weirdo”. So, how does this man manage to keep his bookstore open?
#6 What exactly is LeFou carrying here? It’s like a hybrid between a cat, a raccoon, and a deer, right?
#7 Why did some pieces of furniture talk while others were silent?
#8 Isn’t calling our prince “Beast” taking it too far? We all know that he has such a temper, and meltdowns at the slightest provocation.
#9 Before the curse, how many children did Mrs. Potts manage to have? And where is the father of all of these children?
#10 Why is Chip the only broken cup?
#11 What happens if Belle touches the rose?
#12 I love all Belle’s dresses but where are all these perfectly tailored outfits coming from?!
#13 Why does Lumière never melt?
#14 Isn’t Mrs. Potts too old to have such a small child?
