Yeah, falling to his death in terror because he went on an epic mission for the woman he loves is very sad. I'd imagine that Gaston and Belle grew up around each other. He seems like the type who was the shy and awkward kid who was completely ignored by Belle. He then devoted all his effort to build himself up in a tragically vain effort to get her to notice him. :'(
The OP is a boring troll who keeps posting a thread like this once or twice a year. No need to take him seriously.
He represents the guys out there who are ignored by the women they love.
You've been doing this for years, ofcourse you're a troll.
Yes, and that dedication has finally paid off. It seems more and more people on this board are finally seeing Gaston for who he really is. In a few years there will be debates called "Team Gaston vs Team Beast".
Especially for you, Chrisbc-1:
You guys are always mean to me. I think you'll miss me if I really did fade into oblivion.
We were doing just fine without you, Chris!
The townspeople were nothing but enablers, stroking Gaston's ego at every turn. They were satiating his ego as opposed to satiating his intellect.
The thing that irks me is that ANY character with a gun in a Disney movie these days will be evil and fall to their deaths.
I agree. I mean what kind of beast would threaten to lock up a girl's father unless she agreed to be his?
i think he does a couple of things that are definitely evil - trying to get belle's father commited to an insane asylum, and stabbing the Beast after his life had been spared.
gaston was trying to blackmail belle into marrying him, you don't consider that evil? And it was no bluff, maurice would undoubtedly have been committed, gaston arranged it, we see him doing it, he had no qualms about accusing a man of being insane when he knew perfectly well it was a lie, i
gaston was not trying to protect anyone when he stabbed the beast, the beast had spared his life and let him go, stabbing the beast was simply an act of pure spite and revenge. Gaston did not love the townspeople, he did not love anyone but himself. he invited them to his wedding so he could show off to them about how he was marrying the most beautiful girl, belle. he wanted to be the centre of attention, as always. Someone like gaston would never have a quiet wedding, he's too much of a showoff.
