Out of all the fathers in Disney movies, Maurice from Beauty and the Beast reminds me of my own dad the most. I can’t really explain it, but even when I was little I felt a sort of responsibility to look after him and make sure he was okay emotionally after my parents’ divorce, and when my mom and stepdad would say bad things about him to me, it hurt deeply. The scene in BatB where Belle takes her father’s place & the Beast proceeds to separate them is difficult for me to watch.
