Real talk alert: the Beast in Beauty and the Beast is basically as much of a dick to Belle as Gaston, and anyone who tries to tell you otherwise is either delusional or hasn't seen The Honest Trailer for the original animated film.
Before you catch Emma Watson's role as Belle in the live-action remake of the classic Disney Princess movie this weekend, Screen Junkies dubbed a very honest voiceover on top of clips from the animated version.
And it's safe to say the YouTube video definitely sheds light on the story of Beauty and the Beast, and will probably lead you to question everything you thought you knew about the story. Bits such as:
"Belle longs for adventure, and she'll get just that when she's kidnapped by the Beast—a prince who's so bad at his job, he's been missing for ten years and no one seems to notice."
"In the fairytale that teaches every kid it's what's on the inside that counts. But it doesn't hurt to be so rich you own a castle with its own library and magic slaves."
"Cheer as this strong, smart, independent woman rejects this violent, controlling, bad-mannered, hairy dude who imprisons her dad [Gaston] for this violent, controlling, bad-mannered, hairy dude who imprisons her dad [the Beast]."
The rewritten songs are also great, and yeah, you should probably watch it here before checking out the new live-action film:
