Beauty and the Beast have always been my 가장 좋아하는 movie inpart because of the story which i still 사랑 더 많이 than anyother story, but that made me curious on the original story so i decided to read it a few years 이전 and i liked it but not nearly as much as the 디즈니 version.
Now i have re-read it and in honor of the DVD release i thought that i should write a comparison between the two version of the same story. The Original Fairy Tale The Characters
Lets start with the characters:
There are only two major characters in the fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast. Beauty
Beauty is the female lead, she is the daugther of a merchant who have 로스트 his forturne and is forced to leave his wealthy life behind to start over as a farmer.
Her role in the story is basicly to live in the 성 and turn dow the beast´s wedding proposals every night. The Beast
The Beast is the male lead and he is a prince that have been cursed to live as a beast 의해 a witch for an unexplained reason.
He is described in the fairy tale as a creature with a human body but the head of a lion,a 수퇘지, 멧돼지 또는 another animal depending on the illustrator. The Story Points
The basic story is that a merchant gets 로스트 on his way 집 and enters a 성 where he spends the night, in the morning he finds a rose 부시, 부시 대통령은 in the garden and picks one for his daugther at home.
This is his worst mistake since the castles master is a beast who is very attached to those roses.
He escapes with his life in exchange for his daugther.
The story contineus with Beauty coming to the 성 and living there for a while and the beast proposing to her every night and her rejecting him every night.
When she starts to miss her father and her 2-9 siblings (depending on the version) the beast gives her a mirror that can show her anything she wants, in the mirror she sees that her father is dying and she begs the beast to let her go see him.
Beast gives her one week and unless she is back with him in that time he will die.
Her family is overjoyed when she comes 집 and makes her break her promise and when she comes back to the 성 she can´t find the beast anywhere, she finaly finds him in the garden where he lies almost lifeless.
She breaks down into tears and accepts his proposal if he just stays with her, then the ugly beast is transformed into a handsome prince and they live happily ever after. The 디즈니 Version The Characters
There is many intresting characters in the Disey version of Beauty and the Beast, but inorder to save time i will only mention three of them Belle, Beast and Gaston the three most important to the story. Belle
She is the heroine of the story, she is beautiful, intelligent and wants adventure.
She is described as odd 의해 the people in her village and have a hard time fitting in because of her 사랑 for books. Beast
He is our unlikely hero and the main character of the story.
He is very agressive and lonely at the beginning of the movie but when he meets Belle he starts to develop a 더 많이 warm and friendly personality.
His spoiled and unkind personality is the reason for his beastly appearence since it was those qualities that brought the spell upon him. Gaston
Gaston is nothing less than a jerk who everyone in his 집 town looks up to, he sees women as trophies and wants the most beautiful one for his wife.
He starts out as an very rude and self absorbed character that no one sees as a real treat until he learns of the Beasts existance, then he changes into a real menace. The Story Points
The basic story goes like this:
A spoiled, selfish and unkind prince is transformed into a hideaous beast 의해 a beautiful enchantress.
If he cannot learn to 사랑 another and earn her 사랑 in return before his 21st 년 the spell will never be broken and he is doomed to remain a beast for all time.
A few years after the spell was placed on him an inventor gets 로스트 in the wood near the beast´s 성 and he wanders into the 성 to get shelter,he is thrown into the dungeon for being a trespasser.
At the same time in a village close 의해 the inventors daugther Belle is harrased 의해 the village strongman Gaston who wants Belle for his wife.
The story continues with Belle taking her fathers place and lives with the Beast in his 성 and starts to warm up to him.
When the pairs friendship is at its peak Belle is allowed to leave the 성 to help her sick father and she is given an 마법에 걸린 사랑 mirror so that she can always remember the beast.
The mirror is later the reason that Gaston get knowledge of the Beast and goes to kill him.
Gaston manages to stab the beast but falls to his own death in the process.
Belle saves the beast from falling and is heartbroken when the beast dies in her arms, she declares her 사랑 for him and then he is revived and the spell is broken and they live happily ever after. Similarities
The Movie and the Fairy Tale has a few similarities and here are some of the ones that i can describe: Rose
The rose is a very common symbol for 사랑 and 장미 has a very important part in both the original and the 디즈니 version.
In the original the only thing Beauty want her father to bring her is a rose and its also 장미 that is the beast´s 가장 좋아하는 flower.
But in the 디즈니 version it is a magic rose that not only is the beast´s shame and curse but also a symbol of his hope of being human again. Mirrors
A mirror show how a person feels about themselfs and that is used a few times in the movie, but in the fairy tale the only mirror mentioned is the magic one Beast gives Beauty. Why i prefer the 디즈니 version
Fist we have the name of the leading lady, in the original fairy tale she is simply called Beauty and in the 디즈니 version she is named Belle, the clever part here is that Belle is french for Beauty.
다음 the story is just better and 더 많이 intresting with 더 많이 things happening to the characters.
Lastly i think that the 디자인 of the beast is simply perfect in the 디즈니 version and is very bad in the fairy tale.
