Beauty and The Beast - one
Once upon a time there lived a prince who lived in a magnificent castle. He had everything. The prince was spoiled, unkind and selfish.
But one day, an old lady came to his castle, seeking for shelter from the fast approaching storm. She offered him a rose of deep red richness in exchange for shelter. The prince however, was repulsed by the haggard appearance of the old lady and refused to offer her a place to stay. He refused the offer of the single rose and turned away.
Before the old lady left, she warned him to not be deceived by appearances, and that beauty was found within. The prince sneered and ignored the warning.
Beauty and the Beasts’ Gay Moment: AKA The Whole Movie
Much ado has arisen regarding Beauty and the Beasts’ “exclusively gay moment,” regarding the film’s character LeFou – who is regarded as the first openly gay character in a live action Disney film.
However, the film in its totality is heavily tethered to the gay experience.
As he wrote the lyrics for the film’s numerous iconic songs, Howard Ashman was secretly living with AIDS, a diagnosis he received just after receiving a Best Song Oscar for “Under the Sea.”
Disney sought out Ashman to return to work on Beauty and the Beast, understandably eager for the award-winning lyricist’s participation. Ashman sympathized with the Beast, drawing parallels to his own experiences, and requested that they make the character into a more humanized role upon agreeing.
Together with his writing partner Alan Menken, Ashman crafted songs that would be cherished for generations – but he did so from home, growing more and more ill.
Throughout the process, the Beast’s character came to be regarded as a metaphor for living with AIDS.
Bill Condon, the director of the new film, said, “He was cursed, and this curse had brought sorrow on all those people who loved him, and maybe there was a chance for a miracle—and a way for the curse to be lifted. It was a very concrete thing that he was doing.”
Producer Don Hahn tied the “Kill the Beast” song to the feeling of societal ostracizing against those struggling with AIDS, stating, “He was really dealing with a debilitating disease, in an era when it was stigmatized. And so, there were so many of those underpinnings to the movie that people may not have seen.”
Tragically, Ashman passed away before the film was released. In tribute, the filmmakers included the dedication: “To our friend, Howard, who gave a mermaid her voice and a beast his soul, we will be forever grateful.”
Beauty and the Beast was the first animated film to be nominated for the Best Picture Oscar.
What she means:
I was the one who had it all. I was the master of my fate. I never needed anybody in my life. I learned the truth too late. I'll never shake away the pain.
I close my eyes but she's still there. I let her steal into my melancholy heart. It's more than I can bear. Now I know she'll never leave me. Even as she runs away. She will still torment me, calm me, hurt me. Move me, come what may.
Wasting in my lonely tower. Waiting by an open door. I'll fool myself she'll walk right in. And be with me for evermore.
