She's the hottest woman in town and he's the hottest guy.
I don't get why Cameron didn't make Cal a womanizer like Gaston or the depiction of Phoebus from the original novelization of Hunchback of Notre Dame by Victor Hugo.
Yeah but she felt the same way about the beast at first until she got to know him. If Gaston had a big house with a dungeon and he locked her up forever then she would eventually learn to love him, it worked for the beast. It was very noble of Gaston to defend her father's honour in front of her.
I'm kidding of course, I don't actually want Belle and Gaston to end up together. I'm mostly just sad for the village, Gaston was the heart of that town and he was in the prime of his life
Okay, you later said that you were kidding. But I want to reply to this anyway: Belle only started to like Beast after he saved her life and changed into a better person. So if Gaston had gone through a similar developement... yeah, then things would probably have been different. But he didn't change for the better; he changed for the worse!
I like to think that the villagers started to respect Belle and the prince, so they could become their new leaders.
You're such an uninformed, idiotic little bastard who is too young to be involved in these kinds of things!
And Adam is NOT Beast's official name. Paige O'Hara never said anything of the sort, you pathetic little whimp! 😡
Belle did save him from the wolves after he saved her, which shows perhaps the beginning of affection, or at leas the acknowledgement that she appreciated what he had done for her. And i think she was already beginning to be fond of him before he showed her the library, when he leads her there and tells her to close her eyes, she seems happy to follow his lead, she is not suspicious or anything, she seems relaxed in his company.
I don't think the french revolution will occur in Belle's lifetime, or at all in the fantasy France that she inhabits.
