Although there are many versions, this paper will compare and contrast Villeneuve version with that of Disney because of the characters used, setting and plotting.
The versions are different in some aspects and at the same time similar. For instance, similarities and differences arises by focusing on the main characters in the story. In the Disney version, the Beast is selfish and whiny who revenged actions of others, such as the woman who refused sheltering .

From all these, one character has different meanings hence confusing the reader as portrayed in the two versions.

For instance, Disney version names Belle’s father as Maurice and he successfully managed the wood chopping invention making him move to different towns with the hope of winning a prize in fair. However, he got lost on his way back in the woods before coming across the Beast’s castle. In Villeneuve version, the father was referred as the merchant who lost all his wealth because of fire and others taken to pay

Probably, that is the strongest lesson of the film which teaches its viewers to avoid being judgemental even as they exist is a very pervasive society. Likewise, the need to change for the better in order when loving someone has really been highlighted with this film.
In the genre of fairy tales, women have played varying roles; many of them that bring out the real picture of the story’s plot. Some are these women are drawn as beings that are bound to cope with all manners of misfortune in their entire lives, and sometimes in the process of dealing with contemptible creatures, they become heroines.
We are, after all, primed to see them. My thesis is that these heterosexist and patriarchal norms are busily socializing us and our children, particularly when we are off-guard, when there is no interaction at all to cue us into being queer theory-informed or cautious of heteronormative propaganda.
The first book of fairy tales got published in 1550 in Italy and a decade later another collection of fairy tales appeared in France. In England many of the stories were rewritten in easier language for children. These stories never faded over time and now children are being told these stories via films by Walt Disney rather than by their parents (Montgomery, H., ed, 2009).
Supermodels have a team of stylists, ordinary women only have a pair of hands. Men on the other hand, as long as they look fresh, have clean cut hair, and dress properly, can already be called handsome. Women in this case
