And she feels she didn't write that, she wrote that The Beast also changed therefore it is not Stockholm Syndrome.
ShyViolet wrote:The movie Beast wasn't reclusive because he was "selfish" but because he was "ashamed of his monstrous form." He hated himself (thus we see him tearing his own portrait) because of how he looked. (A lot of this was written not only by Woolverton but by Howard Ashman. Many say that the Beast's shame over his appearance was somewhat inspired by Ashman's despair and depression over what his sickness (AIDS) was doing to him physically when he was working on the songs and story of the film. Thus the Beast tells the servants in despair: "She'll never see me as anything...but a monster.")
And on women getting Disney film interpretations all wrong: Eric, there's more than just one way to look at these stories.
