Here is a list of my favorite characters from my favorite movie.
I will begin with number 10 and work my way upward to number 1 so i hope you enjoy it and please let me know what you think.
At 10th and last place is Gaston
Gaston never was a character that i whould concider a favorite, he starts out the movie as a overconfident jerk who can´t take no for an answer which i always found annoying.
Then when he learns of the beast in the castle he changes into a villain that is at least worth your time but his personality didn´t get any better just from that.
But now when i watch the movie i have to admit that he is a good villain since he actually succed with seriously injuring the hero and if you turn a little on the story Gaston was (even if it wasn´t his real intention)trying protect his village from a potentially dangerous monster.
So that is why he is on my list even if he is my least favorite character.
9th is Philippe
The reason why Belle´s horse is on here is because you cant help but feel sorry for him when he has to go into the scary part of the forest.
He also could be said to be smarter then Belle´s father since he tried to get them on the right way again.
At 8th place we have Babette
I like her simply because of the fact that we see to little of her in the movie, it makes me wonder who she is ,what her relationship with Lumiére is and stuff like that.
And to be honest her human form is beautiful.
Next on 7th is Belle´s father Maurice
He is a very good father in my eyes since he went to the beast´s castle alone in order to bring his daugther back home.
I think that his biggest problem is his bad luck, i meant he got lost and then when its seems like he found a place to stay for the night he get put in a dungeon just for coming inside.
Next is 6th place and that goes to Mrs. Potts
She is the kind of woman that makes the household go around without any problems and i think that the Beast´s castle whould be a much darker place than it is without her doing her job.
I always have a good feeling about this character because my grandmother is kinda like her the kind "old" woman who you can´t help loving but who still can get really angry at you.
I also like the fact that she acts as a motherly figure towards Belle since thats what she needs at first in the castle.
Number 5th is Cogsworth
Cogsworth is a character that i now realize i can realate to in a way since i always get "runover" by other more outgoing and positive, and i usually try to tell them my ideas but they most of the time gets ignored.
Other reasons why Cogsworth is a great character is his voice that David Ogden Stiers does perfectly and his "fights" with Lumiére.
4th is the little teacup Chip
He is a very cute and funny character and i think that it amazing because most of these "little kid" characters in movies people say are annoying or that they ruin the story, but thats really not the case with Chip.
He brings a certain charm to the movie and have a few very cute and smart lines.
And at 3rd place is Lumiére
This guy is the kind of person that i wish i was more like because if it´s one thing that Lumiére has that i don´t it´s selfconfidence.
His voice done by Jerry Orbach is amazing and he really brings comedy to the parts where he is on screen.
Lumiére like all the main characters is needed for the movie to be as good as it is.
Next is the best part of this whole list the top two characters, and you dont need to be very intelligent to figure out who they are right?
First on 2nd place we have The Beast
He is 2nd because i always thought that he is an amazing character who goes through a big spiritiual and physical transformation.
What i like most about his personality is both his angry side that he has in the beginning of the film and his awkward and shy side that he has toward Belle.
When it comes to his appearence i just love the design that Glen Keane came up with it really looks like something that could exist on earth.
Then at 1st place is (not surprisingly)Belle
Belle is my favorite character for a number of reasons she is very beautiful, she is a "social outcast" and feel like she dosen´t fit in and that i know that many people can relate to.
Other things i like about her is that she is willing to give up her freedom to save her father and the fact that she can stand up to the Beast in an argument.
I could go on and talk more about why i love both Belle and the Beast but i think that deserves thier own articles so i think that this will be enough for this article.
I hope you enjoyed this list and i hope you will comment and tell me if you agree with me or not.
