Disney Beast Age Analysis by Xibira Disney Beast Age Analysis by Xibira
Ok...I know what you're gonna think...WTF IS THIS?!?
Hehehehe well, today I saw the Disney movie "Beauty and the Beast", which I haven't seen like when I was 9 years old (I'm 18).....soooo, I suddenly noticed a little detail about the age that Beast (Prince Adam) had when he was cursed....and I was like WHOA!!! GOTTA MAKE IT KNOW TO THE WORLD NOW!!!

Hehehehe probably most of you noticed this way before than me, but some of you didnt, right? ;)
When I realized that Prince Adam was 11, I just thought....OMG, he must have been a real cute beast puppy!! And I draw him as a little beast, and then I made this.....thing? :la: :la:
-----(EDIT-2013) I've realized that some of the writings werent so visible, so I fixed that now.

I always figured once they were cursed they just didn't age while it was in effect. I don't know how old Chip was supposed to be but I don't think it was more than maybe 7 or 8. So he wouldn't have even been born at the time of the curse if they aged like normal. 

Either way though, I love your drawing of his young beast form.

I STILL think Prince Adam looked a lot more dignified as Beast. 

(Or if you follow the original French version "Bete" to match the girl's name who is literally "Belle".   The french version (which is a unique flavor all together both similar yet different, which I highly recommend watching) is titled "La Belle et la Bete" which literally translates to "The Beauty and the Beast" or "Beauty and Beast" as we know it)


Still, BatB / LBelB is still my fave. X3  (I prefer the Disney version, but if you can find the original black and white non-Disney version, I'd still watch that too.  So much changed.  So much omitted)

I hate play devil's advocate but consider this: If the prince acted so selfishly at that age, think of what he could have been like if he was never cursed. He would have inherited his kingdom and could very well have become a tyrant due to his selfish, apathetic and temperamental nature. Now the Enchantress' actions make way more sense since she saved many people from being ruled by a potential despot (although there is still the matter on why the prince's servants were cursed when they didn't do anything wrong...)

But if you look at other details such as Chip and all of his siblings and the fact the picture of Prince Adam before he's curse shredded because it was a reminder of what he lost, he's older than 11 in it and looks like he does when he changes back. >.>
Any thoughts on that?

yeah, I thought about that too when I rewatched it as an adult, it's really unfair of the sorceress to curse a child, especially when children tend to judge based on looks, of course he didn't like an old hag!  on the other hand, I didn't think about what he would look like as a beast when he was a child, I love your rendition!  also, if he was 11 when he was cursed, why does he look like he's 21 in the portrait of him that hangs in his bedroom?  more food for thought

Well, paintings aren't photographs. Painters in our history have done liberties in portraiture, after all. So in that world, probably whoever got hired to do Adam's portrait made a deliberate decision to make him look older.

Beauty and the beast is my favorite Disney Movie :) It took me some time to realize he was 11 when he was transformed. What doesn't help is they don't show him like that in the Christmas special. Or (as i saw someone else mention already) he looks older in the ripped portrait. Talk about confusing!!!  

I guess they left it up to our imagination. Another theory i hear is that he was an adult (or at least more then 11) but when he was transformed time there "froze" so no one aged, and maybe they meant 21st year as a beast. They never did say how long Belle was with him. (Then again i'm thinking only a few months but we don't know for sure.)

Either way, still love the movie and love this :) Also the Enchantress is a MEANIE for not just transforming him (especially if he was a Child) but everyone in the castle when they didn't do anything wrong.

Maybe not Chip but Lumierre did say in the stage version that the servants helped to make Adam who he is after cogsworth complains.

I haven't seen the stage version yet, though i am hoping too in April when it comes to WI. :) That's true, that does make sense, a kid having only servants and no parents would turn him into a spoiled brat, (even with parents having servants can do that)
