Please tell us you hate these songs as much as us? They have completely ruined the original classics. Also Emma Watson if you're listening. Please don't ever sing.


Be Our Guest...Put Our Facts to the Test

  1. Ryan Gosling was offered the role of the Beast, but turned it down to appear in La La Land (2016) instead. Emma Watson was offered the lead role in that movie, but turned down that movie to star in this one.

  2. Sir Ian McKellen originally turned down the voice of Cogsworth in Beauty and the Beast (1991).

  3. According to Emma Watson, when Belle had to be intentionally struck in the face by a snowball, the whole sequence required numerous attempts, until a satisfactory hit was accomplished. In the end, Emma had to keep moving her face (target) into the line of fire, in order to increase the chances of a direct hit.

  4. Belle's ballroom gown required 3,000 feet of thread, and over 12,000 designer hours to complete. It was accentuated with 2,160 Swarovski crystals.

  5. In the castle battle, LeFou mockingly suggests Mrs. Potts is Chip's grandmother. This is an inside joke alluding to the popular complaint amongst fans that the human version of Mrs. Potts in Beauty and the Beast (1991) looked too old to be Chip's mother.
