Beauty and the Beast Question

1.) Does The Beast have a real name? Do we get to know it? 2.) What is going on with the timeline?

Okay, I'll elaborate on question 2..
Beast's rose is supposed to bloom until his 21st year...
When Belle arrives, the castle has been enchanted for 10 years...
At 10 years the rose wilts and dies...
Did they mean The rose would bloom until 21 years as a beast or until Beast was 21 years of age? Because 10 is not the same as 21 and if it's the latter option then Beast was just 11 when he was cursed...not cool...
Please, have I misunderstood or did Disney writers screw up? I hope you say I misunderstood because everytime I watch my new favorite movie I end up doing math in my head (Which is quite difficult when one is also singing "Be Our Guest" in their head). I hope this Question makes sense. Thanks for even reading it!

i think u r realy misunderstood, but first of all let me tell u the beasts (or the prince) real name is (adam)


okay the rose will wilt when the prince become 21 not the rose wich means after 10 ten years, and when u say the prince was cursed when he was 11... it's true... i found that out when i saw B&B part 2 (enchanted christmas) they showed us that the prince was just a little boy between 10-12.. but unlike u i think it's cool......


by the way every time i wach the movie (be our guest) stay in my head too,and not only for one day but for almost a weak.... :)

I asked a similar question about the Beast's name in the Disney club, but nobody answered it. Maybe because it's been asked here and I never checked it out.

I don't know the Beast's real name, so I'll go to number two.

I think the rose would bloom until the prince reached his 21st birthday, in his lifetime, not only as a beast.

And I don't believe the castle was really enchanted for 10 years. Didn't we look at the beginning of the movie, there was shown a portrait of the prince? He already looked like a grown-up lad, maybe aged 17 or 18.

In the stained-glass scene, when he refused the enchantress, he was shown as a young man too, not a 11-year-old boy.

About Lumiere singing Be Our Guest and saying 10 years under a spell, that was only a song.

1. The Beast was never given an official name in the movie, but Disney animators for the movie have commented on this and said while they were animating Human Beast, they called him Adam and so the fans started to call him that.

2. I'm pretty sure that it was 21 years of age. Positive.

Ok well to make it clear to you the narrator says that the rose which the enchantress gave the beast would bloom until his 21st birthday and if he learns to love and she will love him in return the spell would be broken but if the woman he loves doesn't then the last petal of the rose will wilt and the beast will remain like that for all eternity.Also the setting for the movie i'd say could be either the 19th century or the 18th century because the men in the movie have ponytails and the beast in human form has long hair so.


His name: If you wanna know his real name some people think its Adam more think its vincent but we never get to know at the end if he had a name or what?. Btw I love this film too and I saw it on youtube so many times. Great film

His name is Adam, Vincent is from the TV show Beauty and the Beast that was on in the 80s. As far as the setting I believe it was around the 17th century due to the muskets that Gaston was using. Course set in France wonder if Beauty and the Beast eventually became victims of the revaloution?

I found a link to some of the possible original stories of BATB. It looks like it has been an old folk story that has been around for centuries.

Okay sweets, the Prince was 11 yrs. old when the Enchantress put the spell on him and the castle. Lumiere says " 10 years we've been rusting". And it will bloom until his 21st yr or he will remain a Beast. Well that didnt happen. Belle came along in time so he was 21 when the spell changed back. Because the narrator says " As the years passed he fell into dispare, for who could ever learn to love a beast?"

He has no official name that Disney gave him that we know of. But the internet and Disney fans far and wide have dubbed him " Prince Adam". So if you hear Adam, you know its the prince form of the Beast.

1) Adam, as assigned by the creators in the special features.

2) Everyone is right and yet wrong. It IS until his 21st birthday... and YES.. he did get turned at 11... but Disney DID screw up.. because in the castle you see a picture of 21 year old beast in tatters in the west wing... so.. you see why it's kind of confusing.

First of all his real name is Adam.
Second,here's my theory and again this is just a theory and not cold hard facts.
Ok yes it's true they said it would bloom on his 21st year. Well I was thinking maybe that means his 21st year bing in charge of the kingdom. I mean really think about it. His parents aren't in the picture so they must be dead. And let's just say that they died when he was 4 or 5. WELL with that being said his "21st year" would make him 25 or 26 not such a far fetched idea for a disney prince i.e Flynn Rider and Prince Phillip. And also that would have made him 15 or 16 when he was cursed,that's a little bit more believable as far as that portrait is concerned. Again just my thoughts but I thought that could possibly the answer.
