Beauty and the Beast : H.E.R is all set to star as Belle in ABC .

Beauty And The Beast

This is a timeless tale that follows the story of Belle, a beautiful and intelligent young woman who is taken prisoner by a hideous beast. When her father Maurice is captured in the woods by the beast, she hurries to his rescue and finds herself trapped in its castle. There, she meets this gentle creature with whom she can have conversations and share dreams while they wait for Maurice to be released.

What is the plot of the story ?

Belle meets the Beast and falls in love with him, but he doesn’t recognise her as his true love.
The story of Belle and the beast is based on previous stories such as ‘Beauty and The Beast’ by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont. The themes of the story are not new, but the way that Disney presented them was most innovative.

Who is in the cast ? What role did each character portray ?

The cast include Emma Watson , Dan Stevens , Luke Evans and Kevin Kline as the prince, Belle and Gaston. Emma Watson was a perfect choice for Belle as she has given an excellent performance in every one of her roles. Dan Stevens is a good looking and talented actor who doesn’t hesitate to play a bad guy. He plays the prince quite well, but I couldn’t understand why he didn’t play the Beast. Luke Evans is another good choice for the role of Gaston , but unfortunately he does not have enough screen time to show his talents in this movie . Kevin Kline is not too famous in Germany, but he can still be seen in cinema everywhere .

What are the difficulties they faced ?

Producing the movie was quite a task for Walt Disney Studios. A huge budget of around 200 million dollars had to be spent on the production of this movie. The cast and crew had to work around the clock for several months without any breaks in order to complete their work. The costumes, for example, were expensive and the cast had to wear them most days for more than 300 hours. The themes of the movie were based on previous story such as ‘Beauty and the Beast’ by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont. The themes of romance and romantic love are seen in this movie, but Disney made it more different somehow.

Who is the antagonist ? What are its motives ?

Gaston is the antagonist of the story. He wishes to marry Belle, but she refuses. His motive is to win Belle’s heart and make her love him. Gaston fails in his task, but eventually he succeeds in getting Belle to love him . After many attempts by the villagers, Belle confronts Gaston and puts him in his place. Belle manages to defeat her antagonist and save the prince from his dungeon. Belle and the Beast have a fairly short interaction in front of the audience. The rest of their time is spent locked up in a castle, but their love is strong enough to overcome any obstacles that they face.

Who is the most loved character ?

The main character of this movie is Belle, but it’s not very clear which one of the characters she is. The prince is much loved by the audience, but he has a huge flaw. He is a monster, so it’s hard to feel sympathy for him. Gaston is the most loved character in this movie, and his popularity is understandable because he has good looks and a charming personality.

What is the climax like ?

The climax of this movie was the most anticipated and was based on previous versions of the story. In order for Gaston to get his hands on Belle, he cuts off her hair using a scissors. This scene is different from the previous versions because Gaston does it in front of the audience rather than behind her back. After this scene, Belle turns into a beast and attacks him, but he manages to defeat her by taking away her powers. In order for Belle to return to normal, she must become human again. Her father is set free from his prison during these scenes and she runs away with him towards their home village where they are happy together.
