Beauty and the Beast Home Video

Back before Disney’s live-action remake of their 1992 animated adaptation Beauty and the Beast hit theaters, Honest Trailers delivered a mockery of the contemporary classic musical from the House of Mouse. But now that the updated version of Beauty and the Beast is available on home video, Honest Trailers has returned to give Emma Watson and Dan Stevens a hard time.

Beauty and the Beast Deleted Scene

Even for people who love Beauty and the Beast, one of the most disturbing parts of the movie is the fact that everyone in the Beast’s castle is subject to the curse placed upon the residence by the enchantress who was so rudely refused shelter by the arrogant prince. Aside from that, the curse itself raised the question as to whether every household item in the castle was indeed inhabited by a person. One scene in particular would have provided just a little more information to that question, but it ended up getting deleted.

The Beauty and the Beast deleted scene in question finds LeFou (Josh Gad) attempting to run from the fight between the angry villagers led by Gaston and the castle’s living furniture by hiding in the bathroom. But that room turns out not to be so safe as it’s inhabited by one of the castle’s inhabitants, one who is stuck in that room due to what he’s been unfortunately transformed into: a toilet.

Film sets are ridiculous places. You have dozens (and depending on the day, possibly hundreds) of crew members gathered around a set while actors put on costumes and play pretend. Green screens must be ignored – they will look like an actual background when all is said and done. That CGI monster will be added in post – for now, just pretend to to run away from it. The set only extends as far as the frame – tilt the camera a half inch and you’ll see craft services.

Making any movie is a weird and arduous process, but making a big-budget fantasy movie is even weirder and more arduous. And in the case of Beauty and the Beast, it meant Dan Stevens having to wear the most ridiculous motion capture suit imaginable…and Emma Watson having to look him in the face and not giggle. A new featurette from the upcoming home video release of the film offers a peek at this process and it’s an amusing reminder that all movies look completely ludicrous until they’re done.

Beauty and the Beast Deleted Scene

Though the remake of Beauty and the Beast was pretty loyal to the animated adaptation that Disney brought to the big screen in 1991, it also added some details to the story, including a few original songs. You’ll be able to see even more of the movie when Beauty and the Beast arrives on home video, and director Bill Condon has revealed one of those extras today.

One of the new musical sequences in Beauty and the Beast is a flashback that reveals more of the Beast’s past as a young prince. It unfurls with the new song “Days in the Sun”, but the original version went a little differently before it had to be changed in the final cut. Watch the Beauty and the Beast deleted scene below.

beauty and the beast compared to the original

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: Bill Condon’s Beauty and the Beast.)

Once Walt Disney Pictures began adapting its animated classics for live-action, starting with Tim Burton’s 2010 take on Alice in Wonderland and moving into villain-centered fairy tales like Maleficent, it was a safe bet that a new version of Beauty and the Beast wouldn’t be too far behind. The 1991 film is beloved the world over and was a central part of pop culture for countless Millennials growing up. Plus, it garnered heaps of critical praise and a Best Picture nomination at the Oscars, the first for an animated film. So it’s no surprise that Disney has gone all-in with its live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast: it boasts an all-star cast including Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellen, Luke Evans, and more; its director, Bill Condon, has directed everything from entries in the Twilight Saga to the Dreamgirls musical adaptation; and its reported $160 million budget is evident in the sets, costumes, and extensive CGI.

But can the new Beauty and the Beast compare to the 1991 classic? Does this remake feel as timeless as the film that inspired its existence? Or do its changes — and there are quite a few — feel dull and lifeless? Let’s dive in and compare the original and its remake to find out.
