Beauty and the Beast have always been my favorite movie inpart because of the story which i still love more than anyother story, but that made me curious on the original story so i decided to read it a few years ago and i liked it but not nearly as much as the Disney version.

Now i have re-read it and in honor of the DVD release i thought that i should write a comparison between the two version of the same story.

The Original Fairy Tale
The Characters

Lets start with the characters:
There are only two major characters in the fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast.

Here is a list of my favorite characters from my favorite movie.

I will begin with number 10 and work my way upward to number 1 so i hope you enjoy it and please let me know what you think.
Gaston
Gaston

At 10th and last place is Gaston
Gaston never was a character that i whould concider a favorite, he starts out the movie as a overconfident jerk who can´t take no for an answer which i always found annoying.
Then when he learns of the beast in the castle he changes into a villain that is at least worth your time but his personality didn´t get any better just from that.

But now when i watch the...

As you can infer, this is my personal rank about Belle's outfits, one of the best dressed Disney animated females, in my opinion.

The brown sequel cloak
The brown sequel cloak

8. Brownish-red Cloak

Movies: Beauty and the Beast: Belle's Magical World

I know I can't expect so much from a sequel animation, but this cloak is awful. The color is too dark, I've never liked brown. Belle wears it with her blue dress and this is a really terrible combination. The hood also doesn't fit with her hair: brown hood with brown hair? Bad.

Hello! This is my first article and I hope you enjoy it. It's my ranking of Belle's outfits. I know this has been done before and I warn you my choices can be quite previsible. This list includes five gowns (four from the original movie and one from The Enchanted Christmas) and two cloaks.

7. Blue peasant dress

"This is... nice" - Madame de la Grande Bouche (musical)

Yes, it is. I like the shade of blue used and the neckline, but it is very plain. I prefer it with the apron, because it brings more variety in the coloring of the lower half.



6. Christmas gown

Again, it has nice coloring and...

As you can infer, this is my personal rank about Belle's hairstyles.

4. Low Ponytail

Movies: Beauty and the Beast, Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas, Beauty and the Beast: Belle's Magical World.

The most usual Belle's hairstyle is my least favorite. I think it's very plain and it doesn't value Belle's pretty face. She has the low ponytail for the most part of the movies with different bows, but my favorite is the green one. The green bow fits perfectly with Belle's brown hair. I love the pink one too, pink/brown is also a good combination. I really dislike...

There's been a change in me
A kind of moving on
Though what I used to be
I still depend on
For now I realize
That good can come from bad
That may not make me wise
But oh it makes me glad

And I-- I never thought I'd leave behind
My childhood dreams
But I don't mind
For now I love the world I see
No change of heart a change in me

For in my dark despair
I slowly understood
My perfect world out there
Had disappeared for good
But in it's place I feel
A truer life begin
And it's so good and real
It must come from within

And I-- I never thought I'd leave behind
My childhood dreams but I don't mind
I'm where and who I want to be
No change of heart
A change in me

No change of heart
A change in me

No one is handsome like Gaston!
No one is handsome like Gaston!
Since I had done for both Belle and the Beast/ Prince Adam, now is Gaston's turn to find his handsome actors.

1) Tom Burke

I first saw him as the arrogant Bentley Drummle in Charles Dicken's Great Expectations, he has the same personality and muscular figure for Gaston!

2) Colin Farrell

The Irish bad boy who played Alexander the Great in the 2004 Oliver Stone's biopic Alexander, his Irish accent is very sexy for Gaston, I wouldn't mind casting an Irish as Gaston!

3) Christian Bale

My favourite Welsh actor, I personally think he is an even better choice than Luke Evans, his fellow Welsh. In fact,...

This is my alltime favorite couple and i just want to write an article that is worthy of not just them but also the others who love this couple, so here is my best try.

They come from the 1991 Disney animated feature Beauty & the Beast and they have enchanted people´s imagination for almost 20 years now.


Belle
Belle, the beautiful and adventurous heroine of the story, she starts off with being a bit lonely and yearning for someone that whould listen and be interested in what she had to say about her books and to go on an adventure.
When she meets the Beast not only does she get someone...

Well here is my list with the songs from Beauty and the Beast, i will only write about the songs from the movie but i might use the stage songs in another article who knows.

First of all i just want to say that there is only one song in this movie that i don´t like and that is the one on last place, second i whould like to say that i hope you will share your thoughts on the songs.


Ok then i will start:

At 7th place is my least favorite of the songs Gaston
I have never liked this song as it glorified Gaston and made him seem like a "good guy".
Another reason why this is so far down is because i...

(Young Beast) 'Days in the sun, when my life has barely begun.
Not until my whole life is done, will I ever leave you?'
(Maestrol Cadenza) 'Will I tremble again? To my dear one's
gorgeous refrain?'
(Lumiere & Plumette) 'Will you now forever remain, out of reach
of my arms?'
(Mrs. Potts) 'All those days in the sun! What I'd give to relive just
one, undo what's done, and bring back the light!'
(De La Garderobe) 'Oh, I could sing, of the pain these dark days
days bring. The spell, we're under,
still, it's the wonder of us, I sing of, tonight!
(Belle) 'How in the midst of all this sorrow,
can so much love and hope endure?
I was innocent, and certain,
now I'm wiser, but unsure.
I can't go back into my childhood,
one that my father made secure,
I can feel the change in me,
I'm stronger now,
but still not free!
(All except Belle and Beast) Days in the sun,
will return, we must believe!
As lovers do,
days in the sun will come shining through!'
Gaston's vain sister!!!
Gaston's vain sister!!!
Hi guys, I am not really sure whether or not Disney should introduce Gaston's sister if they make a sequel to the 1991 classic.

A Sexy Gaston's Sister!

Of course, we all love to see a beautiful and sexy but vengeful sister that goes by the name as Glinda or Gale! Her character will be very vengeful as mentioned, thinking that both Belle and Prince Adam killed her brother. Especially the latter! Until she decides to redeem herself in the end, forgiving the couple and finally accepting that he died of a freak accident.

Not Again!

Okay, if they include her, the story will be a repetition of the first story. Especially if her character is a vengeful out to kill Prince Adam!

A Sexy Villain or Not?

Do you want to see Gaston's sexy sister in a possible sequel?
No one has a sexy sister like Gaston!

It has been a long time since I wrote an article so this might not be as good as my other work but I still hope that you will enjoy it.

Here I will tell you about the characters in the Movie Beauty and the beast that I wish we could have learned more about since they got little screentime and/or no explaination.

Babette (Human Form)
Babette (Human Form)

First off is Babette/Fifi/Featherduster:
What we know about Babette is that she is working as a maid in the Beasts castle and because of this she is transformed into a featherduster by the enchantress by the same spell that transformed the master into a Beast...

Belle, The beautiful female lead character in the 30th animated feature film from Walt Disney Animation Studios Beauty and the Beast.

She have always been my favorite Disney character but even if she is my favorite that doesn´t mean that she is perfect.

I will here explain what i like about her and what i dislike and after that i will explain my reasoning.

Good Points
Here is the categories that i will talk about, I will use these on the bad parts aswell since there is always two sides to every coin.
Her Looks
I love how she looks, brown hair and eyes is very nice and I like the fact that...

It was only yesterday that I wanted to leave this place.
Today that is no longer the case.
Things have changed, and I don’t understand.
Nothing is going as I planned.
In his presence I used to be scared.
I was lonely and I didn’t think he cared.
But now there is something different in his eyes.
He’s letting his guard down, and isn’t wearing a disguise.
His inner beauty is finally shining through.
He is sincere and true.
Now I stand in front of a mirror in a beautiful yellow dress.
I feel a little nervous, I must confess.
I think I have fallen in love with him.
Should I tell him how I feel, and go out on a limb?
Yes, my feelings must be released,
Because this Beauty has fallen in love with a Beast.

[Gaston:]
The Beast will make off with your children.

[Mob:]
{gasp}

[Gaston:]
He'll come after them in the night.

[Belle:]
No!

[Gaston:]
We're not safe till his head is mounted on my wall! I say we kill the Beast!

[Mob:]
Kill him!

[Man I:]
We're not safe until he's dead

[Man II:]
He'll come stalking us at night

[Woman:]
Set to sacrifice our children to his monstrous appetite

[Man III:]
He'll wreak havoc on our village if we let him wander free

[Gaston:]
So it's time to take some action, boys
It's time to follow me

Through the mist
Through the woods
Through the darkness and the shadows
It's a nightmare but it's one exciting...

Belle is a french girl who thinks that she is odd.
I may have seen this a long time ago as I got the loan of it from a friend of mine and I absolutely loved it. The characters are brilliant, the whole story is superb as it deals with accepting a person for who they are on the outside and not by their appearance.

Here is some things about this film and what my favourite scenes are,charcthers I love and more. Enjoy.

Hi guys, since I have both the soundtrack and had seen the stage version on Youtube. Here is my review on both versions.

The Animated Version

Like all of you, I grew up with the animated version. The music and the scores are really spectacular that it's no wonder that Alan Menken won an award for the movie! I was very blessed that I grew up with the soundtrack and I got it again along with the musical!
The story also has 2 moral values, don't judge a book by its cover and beauty comes from within. It taught us that humans are very complex with their behaviour and we have our strength and weakness....

Belle: Well, some people use their imagination.

Gaston: This is the day your dreams come true.
Belle: What do you know about my dreams, Gaston?
Gaston: Plenty! Here, picture this: A rustic hunting lodge, my latest kill roasting on the fire, and my little wife massaging my feet, while the little ones play on the floor with the dogs. We'll have six or seven.
Belle: Dogs?

Team 1991?
Team 1991?
Hi guys, since I had done the review for the 2017 film, here is my comparison for the 1991 film with the 2017 version like what I did previously with Cinderella & Maleficent.

The Story-Line

Despite my initial skepticism for the 2017 live-action reboot, I was very happy with a number of things, especially about both Belle and the Beast's childhood, both lost their mothers and we also get to see their interactions more than the 1991 version.
Unlike the 1991 prologue, the 2017 version added more details as to how the inhabitants were cast under a spell. Forgetting about the Prince and the castle!...
