An Analysis of Stereotypes ter Disney – s Beauty and the Brute

В В В Te a true departure from the flamante folktale, Disney’s animated version of Beauty and the Brute weaves a story that, while still rich with its own stereotypes, contains characters which shove through and transcend those stereotypes, creating a combination of messages, both bad and good, for children of both sexes.

В В В While the primary character, Belle (whose name translates to “Beauty”) is stereotypical of Hollywood movie heroines te that she is petite and beautiful with long hair and large eyes, a kleuter behavior and a seeming need to take care of and nurse the dudes she sees spil significant ter hier life (Brute and hier father) there is more about hier spil a character that goes against the stereotype than there is that reinforces it. Spil a character, Belle is both slim and strong, (she reads permanently and she saves more lives than any other character te the movie, even going so far spil to fight off wolves by actively clubbing them with a stick) and however the townspeople describe hier spil “strange” and “funny” because of hier strengths (therefore seemingly reinforcing the stereotype) it is ultimately this strange and funny dame that finishes up with the prince. Overall, I think the fact that the filmrolletje uses the narrow-minded townsfolk (who straks become a sort of misguided force for evil under the leadership of Gaston,) to define Belle’s intelligence and strength spil strange while making hier at the same time a heroic character who “wins” creates an overall positive message for children of both sexes, even if the glad ending is a saccharine ideal of “and they lived gladfully everzwijn after ter a castle, etc.” It trains masculine children to value strength overheen demurity ter the opposite lovemaking and it instructs female children to buck the común standards when the ordinario standards are limiting, discriminatory and wrong. Belle’s rejection of Gaston alone, when he tells hier he’s looking to make hier his “little wife” is a giant smack ter the face to the standard stereotype, and it creates the message that women are ultimately te charge of their fate and they do not have to submit to an overbearing masculine arched on “owning” them.

В В В Keeping with the notion of creating stereotypes te order to ruin them, Beauty and the Brute offers Gaston spil a “specimen” of manliness. While the creation of a blue-eyed, (incidentally, the Animal is the only other masculine character with colored eyes, also blue– all other masculines simply have dark points, making them less visible and therefore less significant, which could be seen spil sending the message to children that servile and commonfolk personalities or non-prince types of people just aren’t spil significant, a bruising message without doubt) “tall, dark, strong and handsome” main character could be seen spil creating an ideal for masculine children that could be hurting to their self esteem if they don’t match Gaston’s parameters and an ideal for female children which could be hindering ter their straks romantic life, the fact that Disney creates this “charming” character spil a “bad guy” and casts a “horrible ugly beast” spil the “good guy” (who Belle even states is “no prince charming”) utterly goes against the stereotype, substituting it instead with the message that its not what a person has on the outside that matters, but what’s on the inside– a positive message that urges us to look beyond appearances, whether they be skin color, ethnicity or gender. While both Gaston and Animal are portrayed spil fat, angry, muscular fellows, the brute is much more sensitive (Belle rescues him on his botched attempt to rescue hier, and Gaston describes him spil “too kleintje and gentle to fight back”) it is ultimately Gaston’s massive “manly” destructiveness and tenacity that costs him his life. Brute has nothing to do with his death, which defines him against the stereotype even however the fight inbetween massive boys for the lone woman fits with stereotypes and sends the message to both sexes that dudes are meant to fight overheen women and not vice versa.

В В В The étnico stereotypes are more subdued, but present nonetheless. Albeit the speelfilm presents people spil relatively “Hollywood normal” and beautiful people, wij see the depiction of specific étnico (or rather nation-specific) stereotypes appearing ter the characters Lumineer and Cogsworth (French and British, respectively.) Lumineer, accomplish with a decidedly French accent and pompadour, is introduced spil a flamy and sultry candle holder with a flair for romance who zometeen states that, merienda he becomes human again, will merienda again engage ter cooking and courting, all of which is te keeping with a stereotypical view of the French (even if it only highlights the positive stereotypes.) Cogsworth on the other arm, is painted spil stuffy and rigorously observant of rules and order, aspects stereotypical of his “Britishness”, and he even states that, upon becoming human again, he plans to “sip tea”. While neither of thesis stereotypes could leave any truly negative impressions with children spil to the French or the British te my opinion, they do set up preconceptions about the French being all about love, passion, romance and food while the British are more formal and rigid and not spil interesting spil the French.

В В В There are other instances where Disney cautiously avoids the most vooraanstaand stereotypes by reaching past them (such te the creation of minor masculine characters dressed te pink and involved with makeup application who are not personages spil gay) providing children enough diversity ter introduced people types to create a sense of there truly being finta a few different types of people ter the world and putting forward a message of not judging by appearances. There wasgoed however, a single example te which a masculine villager wasgoed abruptly expelled from a toilet dressed up te flamboyant female clothing during the botched attack on the Brute’s castle. Spil soon spil he witnessed his reflection, he ran screaming te terror, tearing at the clothing, and albeit it wasgoed doubtless intended to be humorous, it, like the large, protective, muscular guys who predominate the screen, plays directly into the stereotype of what a “boy” is supposed to be, and that can be bruising to boys who do not subscribe to the “boy code.”
