Bonjour, Disney lovers! I have mentioned this a lot on my blog, but Beauty and the Beast is no doubt my favorite Disney movie of all time! It is amazing, and I LOVE it! Like every movie, it has a few plot holes, and I would like to talk about the biggest one:
In the first scene, it introduces Adam aka the Beast. Like everyone knows, he gets cursed because he is selfish and only cares about the beauty on the outside! The narrator says if he doesn’t get the spell broken by his 21st birthday, he will remain a beast forever! At a later scene in the movie, Lumiere says “10 years we’ve been rusting,” so that means the Beast was cursed when he was 11 YEARS OLD!!! This is what I am thinking: Who would curse an 11 year old, why would an 11 year old answer the door to a stranger, where were his parents if he even had any. I also just remembered another thing: The Beast is a man in the portrait that we see in the West Wing! How can he be 11 or even younger in that? Can’t the Disney company do math?!? They really should have thought about it before making the movie! This is a major and huge plot hole that I wish Disney didn’t have! But what if Lumiere was just exaggerating about that they have been under a spell for 10 years?!?
Do you think Lumiere could be exaggerating?
Have a magical day!
