Belle has dreamt of adventures like the ones she reads in her books, of traveling the world outside her small town. When Belle’s father is captured, she takes his place as a prisoner of a fearsome Beast. But life in the enchanted castle isn’t as terrible as Belle imagines, and she ultimately finds friendship and love. Enjoy this tale as old as time about adventure and love, about looking past first appearances, and about the inner Beauty and Beast in all of us in this beautiful novelization of the upcoming star-studded film!
*cries hard on how perfect this was*
I can’t believe I’m saying this but this better than the original animation version story wise . They fleshed certain things out they couldn’t do in the original. (Belle and Adam backstory especially and their relationship) They also made Gaston more of a murderous asshole in this one which was surprising.. His death was kind of on the same lines as the original. Also one character does get redeemed which I’m actually happy about because he deserved it in this version.
I have two small gripes tho.
1. Some of the dialogue was taken straight from the original movie which felt lazy. I guess they did it for nostalgic value.
2. Why the hell they didn’t go ahead and make Adam the official canon name for the Prince instead of continuing to call him the prince? It’s kind of official since it’s in the wiki and the fandom calls him that but they could have made it truly official.
Other than that I can wait to see the movie!
