So I’m sitting here in the theatre all emotional because Evermore has me messed up. They’re all turning to antiques, the Beast is dying. I’m just gone. Then, of course, the transformation and the happily every after end scene starts. I’m happily watching (though still emotional). There’s a little girl next to me all happy as well. Belle jokes about Prince Adam growing a beard. Everything is great. AND THEN IT HAPPENS. THAT FREAKING (sexual af) GROWL. Oh man. I had to try so hard not to make some weird pterodactyl noise and scare the little girl next to me. My brain went from an emotional haze to only being able to think “I’M SORRY, WHAT?! DAN STEVENS HOW DARE YOU. THIS IS A CHILDREN’S MOVIE. I AM AN INNOCENT CHILD OF GOD.” Man, did that take me by surprise. I totally loved it though. I mean, what?

Can we talk about how happy Maurice must be to see Belle and Adam together. He didn’t let Gaston marry Belle because he knew Belle couldn’t stand him, but he also knew that when something rough occurred (I dunno say a plague) Gaston would split the second his life was in danger, that when the going got tough Gaston would never really be there for Belle. He knew Gaston’s love for Belle was artificial and could never live up to that of him and his wife. But Adam literally died for Belle. He let Gaston live (which led to his death) because of Belle. Then ran over to be with her. Even after he got shot the first time he didn’t turn around to attack Gaston, he stayed with Belle. Then the “At least I got to see you one last time” line. Adam would literally do ANYTHING for Belle and that their love is just so real and pure and just thinking about how Maurice sees him and his wife in Adam and Belle makes my heart hurt.
