Original BtaB movie Gaston will always be more terrifying than Live action Gaston
Because original Gaston didn’t need to resort to violence until the very end, original Gaston literally had the whole town at his Beck and call, original Gaston did whatever he wanted and the whole town loved him for it.
He had a horrifying amount of agency over the town. He managed to convince an entire town to come to a wedding where the bride hadn’t even said yes. Everyone followed him blindly and honestly that makes him the most fucking terrifying man I could think of.
