If you go to the cinema from Thursday, 16, check out the live-action version of Beauty and the Beast will notice some news – and they go beyond the performances of Emma Watson and Dan Stevens. As a feminist and spokeswoman for the UN’s He for She campaign , for example, the 26-year-old actress made it a point, along with director Bill Condon , to make Bella’s character more real .
In an interview with the American site ew.com , Emma revealed some points that have been modified so that the girls who follow the story for the first time can have a more current example of a woman.
“Obviously, in that case, I’m not a writer, I’m not responsible for the narrative, I’m not the director or the publisher, but I have very strong personal opinions and I have strong views and opinions about my character,” the actress explained.
1 – Beauty Is An Inventor
You may not remember, but in the original version Bela’s father, Maurice , is a recognized inventor in the village. Already in the new version, Bela is the one who occupies the position and gets to suffer prejudice of the neighbors to work and to be proactive – characteristic added to the character at the request of Emma.
2 – No Needle Heels
Like any working woman who cares for practicality, Bela would not be the ideal princess to wear high-heeled shoes throughout history. According to Emma, in most of the film the character wears sneakers that “are perfect for those who need to go horseback riding, prune the garden and repair machines.”
“She is more appropriate to reality, with her feet on the ground and very practical,” the interpreter says.
3 – Princess Clothes?
You may have seen numerous photos of Bela’s classic yellow dress, but the truth is that, beyond the consecrated dance scene, Bela dresses simply. Like any inventor, it always carries many things, so the work clothes have pockets in the skirt in order to meet the needs.
4 – Fine Waist, Only If Natural
In another breach with the Disney royalty traditions, Emma refused to wear a corset, that piece that makes the waists even thinner. Unlike the classic princesses, who display unattainable curves, the actress preferred to give a healthier example to viewers: these pieces can cause irreversible damage to health.
5 – Submissive? Who?
“There’s no such thing as ‘I’m going to beat this guy with kindness,'” Emma said during the interview.Disliking comments that the princess would be in an abusive relationship, the actress counterposes stating that the character does not let the beast’s actions go unnoticed.
– She returns everything she receives. If he knocks the door, she’ll knock back. And she does not stop defying him: ‘Do you think I’m going to have dinner with you? Of course not, I’m stuck here ‘- he exemplified.
In addition to a more realistic princess , the production has another novelty – which did not please everyone. Le Fou , the plotter’s right-hand man, was portrayed by many viewers as a gay character. Some critics have already defined the scenes in which it appears as “quite normal,” but the finding has made cinemas in Germany, the United States and Malaysia postponed – and even canceled – the title’s showing.
