‘Beauty and the Beast’: 9 Differences Between the Live-Action and Animated Movies #1

Most of you have know “Beauty and the Beast” animated film. But this year, Disney released a new live action of this oldish film. Is there any difference between the live-action and animated one? The answer is yes. What are they? Let’s check it out!

1. A washing machine, a heartbroken harpsichord and a beastly ballad are among the small tweaks that make a big impact in the new Disney movie.

2. The Most Peculiar Mademoiselle

The animated villagers couldn’t understand the “most peculiar mademoiselle” because of her affinity for books. Yet the live-action version sees Belle not only feeding her own knowledge, but also opting to share that knowledge with others as well.

3. A Spoiled Prince

Here’s the one! The live-action movie shares more about the Beast’s life before the curse that transformed him after he refused to be kind to an old woman. Not only is his scathing personality shown to audiences, but the household staff further explain how he came to be so cruel (and how they didn’t try to stop that from happening).

4. A Questioning LeFou

This is the unexpected thing. Director Bill Condon revealed that LeFou, Gaston’s sidekick played by Josh Gad, is gay, making him Disney’s first-ever LGBTQ character. “LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston,” Condon explained. “He’s confused about what he wants. It’s somebody who’s just realizing that he has these feelings. And Josh makes something really subtle and delicious out of it. And that’s what has its payoff at the end, which I don’t want to give away. But it is a nice, exclusively gay moment in a Disney movie.”
