Okay, so I’m listening to the Beauty and the Beast soundtrack, and I realize something. In the beginning it says “The rose would bloom until his 21st birthday” meaning the Beast is about 21 years old during the movie.
BUT. In the song Be Our Guest, Lumier says “Ten years we’ve been rusting, needing so much more than dusting…” etc.
This confused me. Because if they were under the curse for ten years, but he would be 21 by the time the last petal fell… that could only mean one thing.
The beast was 11 years old when that witch transformed him.
11. Freaking. Years. Old.
DOES ANYONE ELSE REALIZE HOW CUTE THAT IS, IMAGINE AN ELEVEN YEAR OLD BEAST BEING RUDE AND SASSY TO AN OLD LADY, AND BEING LIKE “NO YOU CAN’T COME IN, MY MUM SAID I CAN’T TALK TO STRANGERS, AND PLUS, YOU’RE SUPER UGLY, GO AWAY!”
AND THEN SHE TURNS HIM INTO A LITTLE MONSTER.
LIKE THAT ADORABLE LITTLE CREATURE RIGHT THERE.
Guys do you not see how I’m freaking over this right now, do you not see how I need more of this in my life???? I CAN’T STOP SMILING!!!!
(I honestly don’t think Disney thought this out very well, BUT THE IDEA OF A CUTE BABY BEAST TOTALLY MAKES IT WORTH IT!!!)
