I suppose one of the big differences is, you don’t see the Beast prior to being a beast in the animated film. You see a sort of stained glass window version of him. But there’s no real sense of what he was like. And in this, we’ve just a hint and we see him at the ball. And I think something that Bill and I were keen to sort of bring out is this sense of a sort of petulant, spoiled child, and the sense of kind of entitledness that led to his downfall. [Dan Stevens]

A quote that you identify yourself with.
“The night is in its darkest just before dawn. But keep your eyes open. If you avert your eyes from the dark, you’ll be blinded by the rays of a new day. So keep your eyes open, no matter how dark the night ahead may be.”
Orla wasn’t wrong, of course. But what she didn’t realize about Blue and her boys was that they were all in love with one another. She was no less obsessed with them than they were with her, or one another, analyzing every conversation and gesture, drawing out every joke into a longer and longer running gag, spending each moment either with one another or thinking about when next they would be with one another. Blue was perfectly aware that it was possible to have a friendship that wasn’t all-encompassing, that wasn’t blinding, deafening, maddening, quickening. It was just that now that she’d had this kind, she didn’t want the other.
They sing and lure men to the sea, grasp them, drown them, draw their ships to the reeves, hoping to feast on careless sailors. Their voices are beautiful; so alluring one cannot help being attracted to them and loses his mind. Long ago, those mermaids were graced with birdlike legs and were worshipped as sea deity. But with their failure to take Odysseus, they threw themselves to the sea out of shame and ire and their legs turned into a fishtail. They are now bound to the currents and the waves and still wander around in the Mediterranean, continuously singing and sinking ships; faithful to their mythical nature, sang and told by many poets and writers.
