Let’s take a time to talk about this part of the movie?
First of all, let’s appreciate how they laugh together. Adorable.
Let’s remember, Gaston was going through a bad time after being rejected by Belle. He was frustrated, and his (stupid) huge self esteem was shaken.
But then comes Lefou and cheers him up until he’s laughing again. We can see how Lefou affects Gaston’s mood (later, on the nose-booping scene, he even tranquilizes Gaston for a moment - which doesn’t last,but still).
What I mean is: no one has THIS power over Gaston.
Gaston even says “You’re the best” to him (can we even imagine Gaston saying that to anything besides a mirror?).
And I don’t think this was a “you kiss my ass, so I like you” compliment. I mean, Gaston even asked how Lefou wasn’t dating any girl, so I understand he really saw the boy as a good company even when he was not singing about how great Gaston is.
Then I’m here to say
No one makes Gaston love a person (other than himself) like Lefou.
What is a "procyon." Why a raccoon? If y'all don't get fully funded will you set up somewhere people can still donate to you? I don't want it to mean the end of it doesn't happen!
