Best parts of Beauty and the Beast 2017:

SPOILER WARNING:

-The Beasts makeup in the beginning
-After Belle rejects Gaston’s dinner offer and he was like “oh, you’re busy?” and she just says “no.” SAVAGE.
- “Now let’s go to the East Wing or as I like to call it, the ONLY Wing…”
. -The entire “Gaston” song scene
- “I don’t have any tastebuds, but I can tell this is delicious”
- Belle throwing a snowball at the Beast and Beast responding by PELTING a huge snowball at her face
-That growl that the Beast did at the end after he had already transformed back 😳
- Lefou and that one thug getting to dance together at the end.

I’m sure I can come up with some more…

One of my favorite moments in this adaptation is this exchange:

Belle: Why do you care about him so much?

Mrs. Potts: We’ve looked after him all his life.

Belle: He’s cursed you somehow. Why? You did nothing.

Mrs. Potts: You’re quite right there, dear. You see, when the master lost his mother, and his cruel father took that sweet, innocent lad and twisted him up to be just like him, we did nothing.

It always bothered me that the staff was cursed when they did nothing to deserve it, but in this version they were punished for a reason. They let him become the way he was when they could have stopped it. I thought this was a beautiful addition to the story.

Reasons Why Beauty and the Beast was Amazing

*SPOILERS OBVIOUSLY*

•Prince Adam’s makeup tho

•in the prologue, Prince Adam is dancing with every woman in the room, but at the end of the movie he is only dancing with Belle and can’t even take his eyes off her

•"A certain je ne sais quoi" “I don’t know what that means” Gaston, you’re French!

•The Bimbettes

•"It’s never gonna happen ladies"

•Belle invents the washing machine

•Plumette and Lumiere’s love for each other

•Belle doesn’t even get to eat any of the food

•When she goes in the West Wing and looks at the painting, the Beast has clawed over his father’s and his own face, but left his mother’s in tact *my heart*
