if you need more of a reason to skip the disney beauty and the beast but still wanted a live action version, WATCH the 2014 french version. y’kno everyone pissing themselves over the reveal of that one dress??? this movie had like 6
belle wore a different dress for basically every day she spent in the castle
and literally every. single. one. IS BREATHTAKING.
everyone’s whacking the ego of the disney movie for that hideous bedazzled party city rental and meanwhile in france 2014 even the men’s outfits were completely ostentatious and INCREDIBLE
and these are just the outfits!!!!!! the entire movie is so gorgeous i nearly passed out!!!! also it did all of this and more on a budget of $40 million USD. disney had over THREE TIMES THAT BUDGET and what did we get for it???? halloween express.
it never ceases to amaze me how kind and good matt boyd is. after everything he’s been through. he is such a warm and forgiving person and i honestly want to cry every time i think about him i am so glad he is happy now and i’m so glad neil has someone so strong and kind and protective looking out for him
how they dare make Gaston a kind, not really pushy person who just wants to win girl’s heart. He doesn’t mock Belle for reading. He actually tries to understand her unlikely to the others. A character who went to war and now suffers from PTSD. Who just wants to live a peacful, happy life with a wife by his side. How they fucking dare do that and not expect that I would fall from him,
For me, being a dark-skinned black woman with natural hair, getting to be this center of this love story — Growing up, I didn’t get to see that very often…I think that artists and people in entertainment, we have such an incredible power to remind people of their worth and to help people dream big. So it’s exciting to get to be a part of that.
