Days in The Sun makes my heart ache. So much like my family. We used to be so close and happy and now economic crisis brought fights and emotional distance. What I’d give to relive just one of those days in the sun, undo that’s done, and bring back the light. I so much relate to them. But seeing the castle staff so close and clinging to that last spark of hope it makes me wonder how can they share so much love and hope in those dark moments and we can’t?

Disney choosing to depict Gaston as a war veteran who loves violence and whose “happy place,” as LeFou put it, is envisioning blood and death is beyond insulting. My dad is a veteran and I’ve helped him through PTSD and panic attacks and to portray veterans like that isn’t just disrespectful, it’s also incredibly not funny no matter how hard the live action Beauty and the Beast tries to play it for comedy.

When I was little I thought the broken furniture in Beauty & the Beast were servants killed by the Beast. We were kinda poor so my mom got mops, chairs, and so on second handed from friends and charities. I treated those items with care because I thought they escaped from the abusive Beast.

Lumiere creeps me out because he reminds me so much of the chauvinistic womanizing old man from the movie “Gigi.” I am unable to have a rational discussion about him or the movie “Beauty and the Beast” as a result.

I once showed Beauty and the Beast (1991) to my older sister. After we finished, while she had liked it, she asked me in a kind of condescending tone “But why did you think I would cry when he died? I’m a bit too old to cry at animated movies you know!” Suffice to say that commented really irritated me and to me ruined the whole experience of showing it to her, as if saying that at the end was necessary.

I have a reoccurring dream where my old high school casts me as Belle in their production of “Beauty and the Beast.” This confuses me because I hated high school and hate “Beauty and the Beast.” I really wish I knew why I keep having this dream.

My high school’s spring musical was Beauty and the Beast and my crush was Lumiere. I can’t listen to “Be our Guest” any more, because I hear his voice, not the original actor
