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.
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.
