TCP#6: Beauty and The Beast

Welcome to the September 15th edition of Tuesday Couch Potatoes where we post about a movie each week. This week's theme is Favorite Disney Fairytale Movie. If you love princesses and knights in shining armor, fairy godmothers, good conquering evil and happy ever afters, then come join us this week!

The child in me just loves fairytale movies especially if they come from Walt Disney Pictures. One of my favorites is Beauty and The Beast, an animated classics loved by millions.

The famous ballroom dance from the movie.

As you may all know, Beauty and the Beast is the story of Belle, a provincial French maiden and Prince Adam who was cursed by an enchantress and was turned into a beast because of his incapacity to love and arrogance. The only thing that can break the spell is when he learns to love and he is also loved in return before the last petal from his enchanted rose fell. Is it possible that somebody could love a Beast after all?

Their paths soon crossed when one fateful day Maurice (an inventor and Belle's father) got lost in the woods and stumbled upon the castle when he was attacked by wolves. He was kept by Beast in the castle dungeon and Philippe, her Father's horse returned to the village to get Belle and brought her to the castle to find her father. Belle then offers to take his place and agreed to stay in the castle forever. They both have their differences yet they slowly learn from their differences, and as the song goes... "finding you can change" and "learning you were wrong".

Among my favorite scenes were when Beast surprised Belle and showed her the library, and when they were feeding the birds one fine, snowy day.

Beauty and the Beast may be a fairytale movie but it teaches a lot of lessons. It teaches us to never judge a person by how they look but on the states of their hearts. It teaches us that anybody can change, even the meanest person. It teaches us that true love can indeed make miracles, literally or figuratively!

Here's a preview of the movie:
