First things first. YES, this is an animated, children's story about a fictional event with creatures of fantasy. HOWEVER, I still noticed some gaping holes in the plot that I want answered. I think Disney owes us that much.
1. Why didn't any of the townspeople know that their kingdom was an actual king-dom?
|Wouldn't you at least see the top of the spires and be like "Hmmm. That's interesting. We have a castle. I wonder why?"|
2. Why didn't the servants' families care that their kin just never came back from work that one day?
Why wouldn't they go seek the reason for their disappearance? Wouldn't you be at all concerned that your wife went to her maid job in the morning and then never came back for 10 years? I mean, the least you could do knock on the castle door. Send a letter? Hire a PI?
|That's a lot of families being represented. You would think at least one would be worried|
3. What the heck is this thing?
|Magic, outdoor, transporter pot?|
4. If they live in France, why do only two characters have French accents?
To me, that should be an all-or-none sort of thing.
|There is a lot of FanFic about these two. I would read it.|
5. I'm guessing Belle was at the castle for a total of a few weeks. A month? Two days? I don't know, I haven't seen the movie in a while, but I do know that it was not a very long time. So that brings me to the inexplicable exponential shedding pattern of the Enchanted Rose. Like, what gives? After ten years the rose loses five petals, but after two weeks it looses twenty-five? What was the unseen cause of the hyper-shedding? Was it that love was so close, but so far away at the same time... and the rose got frustrated with the Beast on his lack of action...and started to take it out on him in the only way it knew how? That's ridiculous though, Lexie. Roses don't blackmail.
|Do they? Only Disney can answer this.|
