This is my alltime favorite couple and i just want to write an article that is worthy of not just them but also the others who love this couple, so here is my best try.
They come from the 1991 Disney animated feature Beauty & the Beast and they have enchanted people´s imagination for almost 20 years now.
Belle, the beautiful and adventurous heroine of the story, she starts off with being a bit lonely and yearning for someone that whould listen and be interested in what she had to say about her books and to go on an adventure.
When she meets the Beast not only does she get someone who listens to her but also someone who knows how it feels to be alone and who really likes her for her "odd" personallity
From what i can see i whould say that Belle is more experienced than the Beast when it comes to love even if that is just from books she knows more than him and that is a real good story point because that shows that she is not as odd as the people in her home town think.
Our unlikely hero a spoiled and selfish prince cursed to live in the form of a beast.
The Beast starts out being lonely, depressed and he feels guilty about the fact that his whoule castle is under a spell because of him and he wants to make things right again.
When Belle comes to the castle he at first only wants to "use" her as a way to be human again but that feeling is quickly replaced by genuine feelings of attraction.
This is his first time loving someone and he is very embaressed and awkward about not only that and his appearence but also the the fact that Belle is his first and only hope, if she don´t fall in love with him he will never be human again.
This part is not written by me but by my friend juicyjossy9, i asked her what i should include or rather what she thought about the couple and this is what i got as a responese so i hope you enjoy it.
"My analysis of their various traits of personality brings to a first conclusion of Belle to be an Aquarius (an Air sign) and Beast to an Aries (a fire sign). High compatibility as they complete each other.
So here my feelings about this relationship:
Aries (him) and Aquarius (her) have a great degree of compatibility between themselves. They share the same personality traits of independence, exuberance and a love for freedom. For both the zodiacs, the best way to solve a problem is through a progressive and dynamic approach. This dynamism and vivacity can be seen in their relationship also. An Aries as well as an Aquarius individual tend to go against traditions and find it difficult to adhere to rules and conventions. Personal freedom and personal creativity define their true self. The best thing about this love is that both the partners respect other's uniqueness and individuality.
An Aquarius will always support as well encourage the enterprise and autonomy of Aries. On the other hand, Aries will always be interested in the new and unconventional ideas of the former. In the relationship of an Aries with an Aquarius, the latter one will be playing the major part in managing it. She will be able to take in his anger without getting upset and make him see the other side of the coin in a much cordial manner. His part will be limited to injecting passion in her and hers to instilling compassion in his. His aggressive ways will intrigue her and her independence will match with his need for freedom. Their conversation will never ever be idle and they will never get bored of each other.
There will be no power struggle between the two and both of them will appreciate each other's virtues. She will love his sense of adventure and his unconventional ways. He will be mesmerized by her intelligence and her enthusiasm in every aspect of life. There will be some differences too, but none of them will be unsolvable. There may be times when the untimely impulsiveness of the Water Bearer (Aquarius) irritates the Ram (Aries). However, this will be more of an exception, than a norm. Since both the individuals are extremely energetic and vivacious, their relationship will hardly ever become boring or monotonous. All in all, a great partnership!"
The reason why i think that this couple works so well together is because they are more different then they are alike so even if they have some things in common they still are opposites.
Another good thing is that it takes them time to realize that it is love between them especially for Belle since it is only at the end she realize that.
Then we have one of my favorite points of their relationship, their awkward moments like for Belle when the beast is eating or the beast´s nervousness when he and Belle is going to dance.
Next is a few of their strong moments in the film:
First is the scene after the wolf attack, Belle could have escaped and just have left the Beast in the snow but she choose to repay her dept by saving his life.
This scene also means alot to them since Belle yells back at him and i doupt that anyone else have done that in a long time, this act together with the fact that she thanked him for saving her life is the thing that makes the start to warm up to eachother.
Next is the Ballroom sequence
This scene is just so romantic and i so full of small gestures like Belle putting her head against beast´s chest or Beast gulping that enhance the feeling of whats to come.
Next is the song Something There
This is my absolute favorite song simply because it is a beautiful song and a very cute scene with the Beast trying to feed the birds and then he and Belle have a snowball fight, this song really shows the beasts playful síde and how their relationship is slowly evolving.
Next is the Scene where the Beast "dies"
This scene is both heartbreaking and amazingly animated.
First when the beast dies the scene feels so sad and then something wonderful happens and creates confusion and then the Prince comes to life.
And who can forget the most wonderfully animated kiss ever and it´s amazing both how it looks and that the audience have been waiting a while for it. I always feel happy when i see this part of the movie and iam not the least bit embarresed to say so.
There i hope you have enjoyed this and i hope you will comment and say if o forgot to mention something that you feel is important, because i feel like this is imcomplete but i have no idea whats missing.
To sum this up i can say, I love this couple and i always will.
