This is the third current Disney World attraction to tell the Beauty and the Beast story, along with the Magic Kingdom's Enchanted Tales with Belle attraction and Hollywood Studios’ Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage. It’s also the least good version, lacking the intimate charm of Enchanted Tales with Belle and the production values of Live on Stage.
For this show, Disney’s script writers threw a small twist into the original Beauty story, presumably to entice people who have seen the other, better attractions to give this one a chance. That twist is that LeFou, Gaston’s sidekick during the film, was secretly working behind the scenes to bring Belle and Beast together. Extra animation scenes were created to tell this (tiny) part of the story, and these scenes serve as glue between clips from the original movie.
Speaking of the original movie, this new idea of LeFou as matchmaker doesn’t add up. For one thing, LeFou is the one who tries to persuade angry villagers that Belle’s father is crazy, and it’s that assembled mob that Gaston leads to kill Beast. If Disney wants us to believe that LeFou was a genius and that attempted homicide was all part of his plan, they’re going to need a better script than this.
What’s even more confusing is that Mrs. Potts starts the film by saying that this is the true story of Beauty and the Beast. Viewers are left to decide whether everything they thought they knew was wrong or if Angela Lansbury is lying.
Sadly, Disney doesn’t take advantage of the full 200-degree screen— the entire film plays on just one of the five screens that can be used.
